Great Principal and teachers. I have always felt welcomed and valued. The PTO is very active and parent involvement is encouraged. Because the school is largely made up of children from military families the students tend to accept new students more readily and friends are made quickly. The P.E. staff are great at encouraging healthy living and do many extras for the students. The support staff is friendly and efficient. All in all, this is an awesome school!

I would highly recommend having your child attend Tyndall Elementary School. The principal is warm and caring, the parents are involved, and the teachers will challenge your child academically. Both my girls attended and have had great experiences.

Six months before our son was to be starting kindergarten I wrote a letter to James McCallister in regards to why we wanted our little boy to go to Tyndall. What I said in a nutshell was this,'What parent who believes so strongly in a good education means a good future for their child would'nt want the best and Tyndall is the best. The teachers, the Principal, the staff, the parents and the kids themselves make this school not only A rated in our book but a very wholesome and loving atmosphere for a child to be a part of. Our little boy will be attending his last year at Tyndall and we will be so sad to see these wonderful years behind him. The teachers he had strove for perfection and helped not only our son but all the kids to strive to do thier best. God Bless you all.

Tyndall is a great school my child has adjusted really well. We moved here about a year ago and my child was really sad about the move, but the staff has made this transition an enjoyable one. Both my children are excited to start a new year in '09. Keep up the good work!!

The best school in the county in my opinion. My child has spent all his elementary years here. Excellent staffing, outstanding principal, amzing experience for military stateside. gernerally the schools near the base aren't always the best. This one is! Parents get involved the encourage it and enjoy your years as much as we have at Tyndall!

This is one of the best schools in the state of Florida. It is a military community, the parent involvement is amazing. There are plenty of activities for the kids to participate in. The administrative staff is energetic, friendly and have the right skills to get through to the kids.

My daughter has attended Tyndall Elementary for four years and I am very happy with the level of education she is receiving. The staff is courteous, helpful and very professional. Their standard is a high one, as they expect performance, too, from the children. The emphasis is reading and math.
