Tropical Elementary School3

Tropical was our first choice school for our daughter. I have since been very disapointed with how the school handles certain issues like bullying and fundraising. The teachers dismiss any concerns you have for issues on the playground(for example a kindergartner being repeatedly pushed into the sidewalk or sand face first) as a game between children, or being hit on the bus repeatedly and nothing is done. I feel it teaches our children that telling a teacher you are being hurt does nothing. This school does excel at fundraising as every week it requests money for some cause or other but when it comes down to the safety of my child I'm left bewildered by their lack of concern.
I am a parent of a 1st grader and 5th grader and have been a part of the Tropical Family for over 5 years. The dedication by the administration and staff is amazing and the PTA totally rocks. My children have excelled and are happy and I couldn't be more pleased. I highly recommend this school.
I love this school it is awesome. I came I here from another school and the students and staff here are so supportive now I am in my 2nd year and the years have passed by so quickly between the tropical trek and ar partys.i also love the pta because they go above and beyond. When I have trouble I some subjects the teachers are always by my side. We also have an awesome principal who is top knotch. We do this tradition for the 5th grader where we go out in the hallway and clap for them and the outstanding job they do. I hope you consider tropical as your child's school, I garentee they will love it.
My son is a second grader currently attending Tropical Elementary, and my daughter, now in middle school, also attended Tropical from k-5 grade. Thanks to a great group of teachers, the administrative staff, a very involved PTA, the great Dr. K the assistant principal and an exceptional devoted principal Mr. Andrew, our experience has been nothing but a positive wonderful one. Both of our kids love Tropical, and the parents involvement is overwhelming. Thanks to a great PTA, the school always holds a nurturing, healthy family environment and fun events. I would not hesitate to enroll a child at this school.
I have two kids in this school, K and 5th grade. It is a wonderful school. The office staff is friendly. The principal and assistant principal are very hands on and seem to genuinely care about the welfare of the students. There are a million fund raisers which is the only reason it wasn't give 5 stars. Personally it's hard to keep up with so many but all of them are to better the school and they have top notch equipment. The PTA is very hands on and have awesome activities for the kids.

our daughter loves this school because when we arrived from Italy, she didn't speak english and she was sad for this reason,we found in this school wonderful teachers and they helped our daughter to get ahead specially Mrs. Smith and Mrs.Millet ..We are grateful.
Tropical Elementary is part of a community whose parents and staff are concerned, involved and who continually volunteer and support the school! The dedication of teachers, administration and the PTA has deep roots in the community. Tropical Elementary benefits in countless ways from the volunteerism spirit, knowledge and experience of the administration. The school is run efficiently in a large part due to Principle Anderson s leadership. As I parent, I so appreciate the effort in every decision that is based on Tropical Elementary mission to provide all its children with a successful educational experience. On any given day, parent volunteers and staff can be found throughout the school giving assistance to our students and teachers in the classrooms. In addition, their efforts, hours of service, and support have provided educational student events, fun-filled family activities, and the purchase of much needed equipment and resources for our students. In these challenging financial times, there are not enough words to express my sincere appreciation to each and every volunteer and community resident who support our district and work tirelessly for our children. I thank all of Tropical Elementary staff, volunteers and especially the teachers and Principal Anderson, for making a difference everyday in the lives of all of our children and by doing so, invest in the success of our school district as well as the future of our community!
