I was very disappointed with administration, especially the way they dealt with the Special Education Department. The IEP Team did not handle my son turning 5 meeting and admission well. My son was forced into a class with 2 Graders and he was in fact a Kindergarten student and was only 4 years old which means he was placed with 7 year olds. My son is said to be Autistic with Developmental Disabilities, but they rather consider him a trouble maker and constantly call Security. My son is no longer a student at that school, because the transitions was really to much for him and needs to be placed in a schools that is equipped to deal with his Disabilities.

I have 3 children attending this school. I have never seen a school where the staff as well as administrators stay on top of things. I have had constant problems with one of my children being bullied and each time I brought it to the attention of the staff, the issues were resolved immediately. My youngest was scared to go to school since he was starting pre-k and the teachers made him feel welcomed and comfortable. He no longer cries when I drop him off, he actually goes to school happy and comes home happy as well. I feel I have a great relationship with the entire staff as a parent of 3 children attending this school. I give a lot of credit to all the teachers, staff, administrators as well as the principle for maintaining the curriculum for the students. I will be heartbroken when it comes time for me to move my kids to another school. I have found this one to be the best yet. Congrats to the school team for jobs well done.

P.S 214 is an amazing school. My daughter was held over in her previous school because they failed to evaluate her on time and give her the extra academic help needed. I since than switched her to 214 and my daughter has made a huge difference total 360. She is now above reading level, she has received 4 awards for the school year 2012-2013, she has become a peace maker and also a part of the step team. I am very proud of her, and very thankful to the teachers, staff, principal, and after school PAZ program that help these kids each day and make school a place for they can call their second home. I can't wait to see what this year will bring to my daughter and I'm extra excited that my older son will be attending jhs this year at 214. I'm aiming for 2 honor roll children this year. P.S 214 has a lot to offer from their wonderful staff to amazing programs that are offered to the kids. Sports, idol, basketball, step etc... Gifted Talented School it sure is! Way to go Mr. Cintron, Ms. Robinson, Ms.Gomez, Mr. Torres & the rest of the P.S 214 & PAZ Staff! Thank You from the bottom of my heart for caring for our future! Sincerly, Carmen The parent of Brian & Ashley Soto

I've been with this school since 2007. All three of my children attend this school. The environment at this school is very parent friendly. The teachers are exceptional. Each teacher is personally attuned to each child. Parents are involved in every step if the way. Administrative staff like the Principle Mr. Cintron is in my opinion the best Principle ever. Rain, shine, snow, he is always out in the front meeting and greeting students and parents. Assistant Principles are also on hand for everything. Children are secure and safe with the teachers until they are picked up. The education level is better than any other school. Teachers are aware of each child's strong and weak point and they work from there.

I have a daughter attending Pre-K and i absolutely love the school. The teachers as well as staff members are very pleasant. It feels as if they are more of a family than anything. I agree with the parent stating the principle is wonderful. He is in more ways than one. He takes time out of his schedule to meet and greet parents and addresses problems as soon as they occur. If i have my way, I have another child I am trying to get into this school. I highly reccomend this school for quality education.

I love this school. All three of my children go there and I am happy with their progress. The school is very involved in enriching the student's life with lots of different activities and teaching methods. It is a beautiful, bright and clean learning environment and we always feel welcomed. Mr. Cintron is an excellent principal, professional, fair, down to earth and approachable. He is doing a great job. If in search of a good school with great teachers and staff, I highly recommend P.S 214 in the Bronx.

Very professional teachers and they are not only your teachers, they are also your friends. For always I will be greatfull to Mr. Lawrence, Mr. Escalante (RIP), Mr. Torrellas and each of you who made me what I am today. Sincerely Yours; Manuel Diaz: class of 7th grade in '86.

I am not a parent, but I did attend this school from the third to the eight grade. As a first year college student I truly believe that my experience at 214 is what molded me into an academically successful student. Each staff member from the principles to the school nurse helped to nurture and protect me. At this school education comes first and a student has no choice but to strive for excellence. Although I went to this school what seems like so long ago, many of the same staff members are still employed their. I would recommend this school to any parent who wants their child to have the opportunity to grow academically and personally.

This is a school that has loving, caring teachers, paraprofessionals, school aides etc. Not to mention a very sharp principal and four assistant principals. C.S. 124 the Lorraine Hansberry Academy has come a very long way. WIth this principal around and her family (staff) they will continue to strive for excellence.
