“I couldn’t ask for anything more for my children. We learned the magic language immersion with our older son and have seen Bennett’s enthusiasm and creativity in action. The combination of covid-safety protocols, outdoor education, immersion and Jewish Studies are perfect. Our two youngest sons are thriving in this environment.

Danielle Goldman is a former business professional with a background in sales and marketing and is a parent to two young sons, one of which is currently attending Tampa Bay International School. Following the birth of Danielle’s second son, she took a step back from her career and has spent time focused on family and developing and managing vacation rentals. Although she and her husband are from Tampa Bay, they spent many years living near New York City and had missed the diversity and inclusion offered there until finding Tampa Bay International School. Danielle and her family could not be more thrilled with the environment and education TBIS provides and are dedicated to ensuring other families get to experience inclusive, supportive and exciting education in Tampa Bay.
