this school is not a good school,they should take the principal out . i have 5 kids in this school,today on 9/17/14 the new rule is not good , my pr-k child i have to leave her on the front and wait to her to go inside because the principal dont want parents inside the school. i dont feel safe leaving my child in that school ,i dont know with who she went cause the teachers are inside we parents dont see the teachers.

I have three children that have attended different schools, but last year my youngest child attended 224 and its the worst school I have ever seen. The principal is nowhere to be found in a moment of need, if your child gets hurt no one can tell you what happened its just a Terrible school for a parent to send their child to and have a good day at work, since you are all day worrying about your child's safety. And that's besides that all they learn at the school are bad habits! No real teaching going on..

VERY POOR SCHOOL. My child was bullied so bad i had to get an emergency safety transfer for him. The principal wasn't aware of all the complaints i put in with teacher and dean. The teacher is very rude when speaking to parents and has very short fuse with students. Ive witnessed her yelling at children constantly. I wouldn't recommend this school at all....ever. The building itself is beautiful...too bad the staff is crap. He learned more at home with me then with that teacher.

My son has attended PS 224 since Pre-K. The teachers are very dedicated to the children. The early morning tutoring is excellent. There is however the method of teaching that should be rethought. The children are not taught the fundamentals of math, reading and writing instead are prepared to take state wide tests. The children are definitely loosing out on the full educational experience. There is not enough time spent on the actual learning. This new method bounces them from subject to subject. The teachers are doing the best with what they have. When do we start teaching reading comprehension, understanding of mathematics and phonics. In order to excel we can't have just great teachers, but a great program. There has to be a happy medium other wise the children will be suffering in the end.
