I have had three children at Floranada Elementary the past five years. Great teachers and staff. There is such caring and warmth within this school you feel like part of a family. My kids love going to school every day. We feel lucky to be at this school as it is one of the better elementary schools in Broward county.

I have 3 children attending Floranada. I drive all the way from Deerfield Beach to attend this wonderful school. I can't say enough good things about it. My children have all been blessed with amazing teachers. The principal is always around and very friendly. The office staff is very helpful. The parents are very involved. It is safe and very clean. There are lots of family activities. We will be moving this summer and are very sad about leaving this wonderful school. I highly recommend it. I wish there were more schools like Floranada.

We only have 1 child so I make sure that when we make a choice for him, it's the best possible one! That being said, we toured 9 different schools! From Boca to Ft. Lauderdale & from private to charter to public. Obviously, Floranada won! It truely was a God send when we received our letter of acceptance for re-assignment to Floranada since we are districted for a different school! The classes and programs they still offer (even with budget cuts), their teachers, their parent involvement.....EVERYTHING is perfect! Plus, Mr. Peters is so intertwined with the involvement too! Try to find all of this in another school!

Floranada Elementary is a truly an extraordinary school. As a third grade teacher at Floranada, I see the students I am now teaching growing up to become the leadership that our country needs to be successful. I see future doctors and lawyers, teachers and public servants, politicians and business executives, and maybe even a few drama queens and comedians. And, in seeing these qualities in these students, I feel more secure about getting older. I know we will pass our country onto capable hands. Our principal, Keith Peters, is the most dedicated principal that I've ever met. In addition to just knowing each child, Mr. Peters meets with each child during lunch and discusses their futures, college, grades, test scores, future job choices and a lot more. He tries to get to know each and every student personally. In addition, each day, we walks each hallway and says good morning to the students. He makes an effort to be a positive role model and leader to both the students and the teachers. Floranada Elementary is such an amazing place. The educational environment provide at this school is truly unique. These students and teachers deserve every opportunity available.

When I walk into school, I feel honored and excited to be part of such a caring and hardworking group of people. We are like a famly who truly enjoys each other's company and ideas. We strive to do our best for all our students each and every day and it shows on their faces. Ask any child or staff member at Floranada Elementary and they will say, "I LOVE my school!"

I have two children currently at Floranada. One is in 5th grade and has gone since kindergarten. My other child is currently in kindergarten. This is hands down the most wonderful school. There is strong parent involvement. The teachers, staff, and administrators go above and beyond to help each child excel. If you are looking for an elementary school, stop here. Read the reviews from parents. Talk to people in the community. Everyone loves this school and I am so glad that my children attend Floranada.

I have been an involved parent for 6 years now and I am here to tell you that this school is an A+ school in more than just test grades. The school is a volunteers dream, it's friendly, clean and the students, teachers and all whom you come in contact with are helpful and kind. The school is not our home boundered school, it is a school we re-assigned to after extensive research and we knew that the education would be top notch. My daughter has grown from a tiny kidergartner to a mature 5th grade tween who is on the top of her game academically, mentally and confidently in most part because of the loving, nurturing guidance of her teachers and the entire staff at Floranada. In short there aren't enough words to express how indebted our family is to this wonderful school. I don't know who will be crying more at the end of this year, as we prepare to leave, her father and I or her.

I went to Floranada Elementary last year... and I miss it! The principal is young and kind. Do not underestimate him though, he's smart,kind, and a strong leader! The teachers are fantastic; they make class work fun and easy to understand! This school has a great after care program! There is a student government, news crew, safety patrols, and chorus. The library is filled of books and other resources. There are computers and laptop carts. There's a field for P.E., a basketball court, two sand playgrounds; one for K-2 and another for 3-5. There are super citizen awards each month awarded to a student from each class. The cafeteria is always clean, but it can get a little loud sometimes from all the talking...but that's what kids do! We talk... a lot! The school is always safe! They practice fire drills and tornado drills so that way the student know exactly what to do and where to go! Being a part of that school was like being a part of a family! I love that school and the people in it!

Why do you love Floranada Eleme ntary School? Our school is like a family. The teachers, administration, staff, parents and students work together to make the educational experience of each child challenging, exciting, and safe. Our principal is a hands-on administrator and makes time to meet individually with as many students as possible, eat lunch with the students, and has an open door policy with parents, students, and staff. Besides being a teacher, my daughter attended this school from kindergarten through 5th grade and received an exceptional education.

I've been teaching 36 years. I've never taught in a place where the love of children is so prevalent. I see it the students for their teachers and parents, in the parents for their children and the people who teach them, and in the teachers for their students and the students' parents and for each other. We have a strong, knowledgeable principal and assistant principal who we are confident can lead us into the future. It all adds up to an awesome school!!

The faculty and staff are one of the most caring and knowledgeable group of people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. The parents go the extra mile to help their children achieve their highest academic goals. The students work hard and are happy to learn. That all adds up to a winning - A+ combination.

My Son had the honor of graduating from Floranada Elem, this past Thursday May 31,2007 after attending grades one through five and I would like to add that I was very impressed with the whole commencement from start to finish. I also would love to highly praise Mr. Armstrong for ability to win the respect and praise of both parents and students. My Son has had the best anyone parent could ask for both from the teachers, aftercare and all the office staff. The best of luck to all of you.

My child is in kindergarten and what an incredible year. The teacher, Mrs. Boardman has gifted my child with a strong educational foundation by which he excitedly wants to continue to build on. Mrs. Boardman not only respects my child but also respects me as a parent, for that I am grateful. One of the coolest things about the Floranada experience is my child's learning experience does not end with the 2:00 bell. Aftercare with Ms. Sanchez is the absolute best. The office staff, Mr. kholi,the Principal and Mrs. Myers, the Vice principal really add to the positive Floranada experience. At first, in any new environment there is an adjustment period where everyone gets used to one another and through out this past year I have learned many new names, received guidance on Broward County School guidelines, and met really talented teachers, parents and staff. Thank you!

My daughter was a student at Floranada, unfortunately we moved out of state. I have nothing but good memories as does she. The teachers are fabulous, the programs they have are fantastic. I can honestly say the staff cares for every single student that attends this school.

The quality of the teachers at Floranada is fantastic. I find that they truly care for the children and do what is best for them. My one son is in the ESE program, and the support I have received from the ESE staff as well as his speech therapist has been fabulous. I feel heard when I go to meetings, and I truly feel they are looking out for my child's best interest. The openness for parent involvement at the school is a big plus for me. I feel welcomed and wanted at all times. I have also found the administration, especially the VP to be caring and helpful in all aspects of my children's education. As a parent of 2 Floranada students, and one alumni student, I could not say more about such an excellent school.

My son is a 4th grader at Floranada Elem. I can only think of wonderful things to say about this school, the principals, the office staff, and the teachers my son has had. The individual and caring attention my son has received has been astonishing to me. Mrs. Meyers, the Asst. Principal, truly cares for her students and their best interests. Her efforts to help me to be sure my son is placed in the proper programs and classes has greatly affected not only his education, but also his self esteem and confidence. My son is being taught by an exceptional woman and teacher, Mrs. Rowe. Her innovative ideas have inspired my son to go beyond what he ever believed he could accomplish in school in only the first month of 4th grade! Her words of praise and kind nature bring out the best in students. Her organizational skills are #1.

Both of my children have attended Floranada since kindergarten and they (and I) love it! The teachers are caring and nurturing (even all the way up to my child's fifth grade teacher). The school is extremely clean and well-kept and there is a lot of parental involvement, which is welcomed by the staff. Another plus is uniforms are required, but they are things you can buy at Target (kakhi shorts/pants, red, white or blue collar shirts) or you could wear their own Floranada red or blue tee shirts. This makes getting dressed in the morning a great help!! Now that FCAT testing is over, school has become full of fun activities for the kids and it is welcomed by all of us. We all think the staff and children who attend are the best.

My son attended Floranada Elementary from kindergarten to fifth grade. I was extremely pleased with the school. The teachers were all very experienced and wonderful as well the office staff. The parent involvement is very strong. My son will miss Floranada very much. I would definitely say Floranada is one of the top elementary schools in Broward County.

My daughter went to this school starting in second grade. she transfered over from a private school. they helped her with the transition and it made the whole experiance very good for her. i do think though that they should have more after school activities the kids could get involved in.

My children and I have had the greatest years at Floranada Elementary! They are currently in grades 2 and 4. My 4th grader is in Gifted Education and I was very torn about sending him to the Highly Gifted site at N. Andrews Gardens because he really needs it, but...I am glad we kept him at Floranada...his teacher is really doing a WONDERFUL job with him! The whole Floranada staff is dedicated and very loving to all of our children!

We are so very lucky our two children go to Floranada. Our son is in the Third grade and has learned so much already this year. His teacher is Mrs Lanlande What a wonderful teacher. Our daughter has Mrs Petersen another wonderful teacher. It is amazing to see all the great things they learn each and every day. I can not forget the parents that help our kids out of the car in the morning. Thank goodness for them. I can go to work knowing our children got inside the school safe.

My daugther just started Floranada. She is in the 3rd grade. She came from another school. For one, the parents seem kind of snooty. The other, there was an open house night and they didn't want the children to attend which I don't think is right. I feel very uncomfortable at this school, like we don't fit. I think you have to be upper class to fit it. Which isn't right. If someone has a different out look on this, please let me know.
