However, in early 1998, before its opening, the naming of the school triggered some controversy, as letters from members of the community indicated a preference for a more generic name. Michael Krop High School is named after Dr. Michael M. Krop, an orthodontist born in 1930 who was first elected to the Miami-Dade School Board in 1980. Krop retired from the Board in 2004, after 24 years of service. Former board members Janet McAliley and Betsy Kaplan accused Michael Krop of lobbying to have the school named for him on separate occasions, a charge which Krop denied. On February 17, 1998: The city council of Aventura, Florida issued a resolution urging the Miami-Dade County school board to name the new high school in northeast Miami-Dade County "Dr. Michael M. Krop High School."
