Based on the rubric of parents and other students, P.S.#14 would be rated 5 stars easily. The school hasn't exactly upgraded in the past few years due to the new addition of the "Neighborhood Program", however, the G & T Program is still in tip-top shape. Not that the Neighborhood Program is a bad thing, it actually broadens the variety of student population, but to outsiders it seems as if the school is just a regular school--when it's not. I have seen other schools and other schools' teams and clubs. Everything P.S.#14 reinforces and encourages is what students need in life. The students are different from one another, but there is no cliquey atmosphere. In the end, Jaguars stick together. If you want to shelter your child from public school and think the G&T is an escape, it's not. It is real life. Besides the 5-10 kids obviously accepted due to political connections, their selection process seems almost fault-less. The teachers are long-time educators and share a passion for guiding students and informing them the right way about life and knowledge. No one will read this, but if you do, I promise you that P.S.#14 is a life changing experience for you (or your child). Jags4ever

Quality of the academic programs is comparable to other schools in the district. There are not as many extracurricular clubs as there are in Midtown (School 18) Community School. On the upside, most of the teachers are well skilled and the parental involvement is enormous.

The school takes its role of instructing the students very seriously. Its teachers and staff are very professional in their instruction and their conduct. My wife and I are impressed with the class/school activities which make the students not only busy but challenged to develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Our daughter has never complained that she is bored. We feel that the principal and the teachers are dedicated to serving the students and parents.
