This is my perception base on my recent experience with ps 84 from a parental and professional perspective.They promote and greatly encourage parent involvement regardless of cultural background. They have a well kept school environment, very clean and organize. They strive to provide the best amenities with the help of community connection and fund rising. They definitely stay true their arts title with only the best music and art instructors. they catering to the whole child concept leaving out the fundamentals of learning, which reflects the D rating for student performance. They do not believe in test preparation and believe in not "pressuring" the child resulting in a lay back and short cut approach to not only NYC standards but to the traditional methods of teaching. Children should learning foundation of becoming an active student and become a costume to how demanding upper grades will be by exposing mid pressure on their own productivity as a student. Not challenging and only catering to individual threshold will only set them up for failure through their academic journey.

Great school. There are a lot of opportunities offered to children, staff and the neighborhood. Love the collaboration with other agencies and neighborhood people. The community activities and fund raisers have been great.

My child is in the dual language program, and is loving school. We've been very happy with the teachers and the administration. PS 84 is a terrific school.

PS 84 makes decisions based on what is best for a child and not what is convenient for a parent or another school. It is disheartening to see how quick one is to judge.

My son has been at PS 84 for three years now and he is doing great. At first grade he reads and writes at second grade level and his teachers challenge him and support him at all times. With the arriving of the drama room, the materials center, the music program, the green room and the salad bar this year he is exposed to art, music, science and love of the environment at all times. He is also learning Spanish as a second language in the dual language program, which PS 84 is well known for.

I am so happy to be teaching at PS 84 and I look forward to working with such great team... a great Principal and assistant Principal, great staff and of course great teachers who make the school a success! I attended PS 84 when it first opened decades ago, and I am very happy to give back to my school and community. I even moved back to Williamsburg and I am so excited to teach at a school that has so much to offer their students... PS 84 prepared me so well and I am very proud my brothers also attended, friends, and they all had much success.... it set the foundation for our I can help my students to become leaders....

PS84 is a wonderful and thriving school. The community is open and welcome to all. I have two children in the school and they are both thrilled with their teachers. They cry when they are sick and can't go to school. The dual language program has proven to be spectacular. I feel so lucky to have such a wonderful and open principal and staff. Thank you 84!!!!

My child has been at PS84 for 3 years, and has had a wonderful academic and social experience. Her reading and math levels are several grades ahead, and she is becoming bi-ingual in Spanish thanks to the dual language immersion program. I urge anyone who wants to become more involved to attend the PTA meetings. I have found the parents to be welcoming and warm. Also, I have seen the Principal work closely with all the kids and parents, and anyone who has had any issues or problems really should go meet with her.

My child has had bad experience since being this school. There is a community of a chosen few. The are not alot of academics going on especially in the lower grades. I am discourage with the school over all performance. Think twice before putting you child here. Do be fooled
