This school HAD a reputation for being a top school, That was a long time ago. Within the last 4 years its had a psychopath as a principal, upon her removal, was replace by a well intentioned assistant principal who was over whelmed and now a prospective principal on a power trip who has mo respect for parents or students.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
At present there is a teacher teaching 3rd grade, who has off the record stated that he/she has never taught that grade, and doesn't know why was assigned to teach that grade,and it shows. My child is struggling and when asks for help is told to "figure it out for himself".


Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
We only see one sheet from a math workbook come home for homework each night. There is no way of knowing what your kid is learning when they are not given any text books, work books, printed work sheets, etc.. They teach to the test neglecting everthing but math and english language arts.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree

The school is a haven for bullies it never gets addressed, each year the violent acts get bolder and bolder and nothing changes.

The bully culture at this school is rampant and goes mostly unaddressed. My child has attended for 4 years and has been bullied constantly, it matters not how many meetings you have with the administration. In my childs own words......"No one cares. Nothing gets done".

There is no leadership at the school!

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree

Time and time again I am disappointed with the teachers at PS24, when I ask how my daughter is learning to read she says that it is with her "reading buddy" who I learned is a 2nd grader... So basically she told me that her teacher is a 2nd grade student and that the time she spends with the teacher is minimal.
