Gloria Floyd Elementary is the best school, because its administrators , staff and it's PTA are the most extremly committed individual I have ever met. They make a point each and everyday to do something that can and does improve the lives of the children. Improving on their self esteem and creating an enviroment that is condusive to learning and bring out the best in each student. All of it's volunteers are the heart of the amazing place that the children have the opportunity learn and create in. They constantly bring forth their maximunm smiles and positive attitud. Gloria Floyd Elementary is the best school to be in. My vote is here.

Gloria Floyd is a unique school in South Miami, named after an environmentalist. The building lower floor is 'buried' in a mountain giving it a bunker like appearance. But it is the staff and parents that make it a great school, our principal is constantly updating and improving the school. He has an excellent staff and teachers that work alongside in a very professional and courteous manner. The school has a dedicated PTA team that works hard for the school. This school has educated several generations in South Florida offering excellent service to children of different cultural background and children with educational disabilities. I am proud to have this school in my community. My child will be graduating this year and I am confident that she'll be ready for middle school.

I love to teach and therefore would like to see my school excel at all times. Education is the most important thing for our students to excel further in life. The funds received from any institute will help enhance the learning goals of our students and will continue to make them lifelong learners.

My children have attended this school since kindergarden. The teachers have always shown a great interest in my kids learning. The PSTA are always involved in their children learning and academic welfare. The principal and asst. principals are very involved in the students learning and academic growth.

My son has been at Gloria Floyd since kindergarten and he is now in 4th grade. I absolutely love this school and cannot wait for my two younger children to start. I love the fact that the teachers truly care about the students. And now with a new principal for the past couple of years, you can really see the difference in the school building and the teachers. We love Gloria Floyd!

My son went to this school for two years, 4th and 5th grade respectively. We moved here from New York State where the schools were exceptional and I think Gloria Floyd Elementary School is a superb school and is comparable to the schools in New York. He had great teachers, especially Mrs. Rosenbaum in 5th grade who is a wonderful teacher and cares about her children. The kids love her and my son raved about her great a teacher she was. I would recommend this school to all parents.

I did some voluntary work at this school. I found the teachers struggling with the class size; 35 and sometimes more students. Some of the teachers I met were going to retire soon while others had been teaching at the school for a long time. In general the school is good but needs to keep the class size to less students.

We recently moved here from NY and my daughter is a 4th grader at Gloria Floyd. We are very happy with the education this school and her teacher has provided her with. Her teacher is very involved and goes the extra mile in talking with parents. All stars to the school and her teacher!

This school is one of the bests schools i've seen! i went to the school for along time and i loved it ! i think the teachers are great and the princaple was excellent.It's true that the school was once filthy but now it is really clean! On the previous comment it said that the cafeteria was too noisy but we have to admit you could not be quiet during lunch. Its the only time of day where u get to talk.For as long as i went to Gloria Floyd the cafeterias always been noisy !

Gloria Floyd Elementary School has gone from bad to worst.I will explain why. First some Teachers have to be constantly reminder to please recheck the student grades for the report cards after the grades are already posted.When you know how your child is because I am constantly behind mine in homework, study time,reading time,etc. The classrooms and the hallway bathrooms are filthy. The Cafeteria the tables were the children sit to eat are filthy, floors are filthy, the loud talking is very loud children sometimes don't eat due to all of that. The entrance of the school is filthy .
