Curriculum is useless. Some teachers show no effort. Security non existent. Recess time is like a free for all, kids running around hitting each other. Transferring my kids.

Administration awful. Not the principal or Secretary.Everyone else is focused on gossip. The curriculum awful. They really need to focus more on the children and stop worrying about other things.

I pulled my son out of the program because I felt he was having a hard time with reading and writing in both languages and figured he should focus on his English which is his main language. Switching him only made me more aware that it's the curriculum the school goes by that DOESN'T MAKE SENSE! Children are sent home with homework of lessons they haven't learned yet. What about the lesson they learned that day? Also, there are NO RECOMMENDATIONS on books, or strategies on preparing the children for the state exams! Did I mention they aren't allowed to bring their workbooks home to help with their homework? This just doesn't make any sense to me. I was told my son was in jeopardy of getting left behind 2 months before the state exam. The amount of teacher/parent communication before this point was ZERO!!! Why was I told at the end point and not when the child first showed signs of not meeting grade level expectations?!!? Overall I am VERY disappointed in the way this school 1. teaches and 2. Parent/Teacher communications. No child left behind is something most parents have raved about with this school. I guess the new Principal has her own way of things.

I love P.S. 24 because it values and appreciates student's diversity and one way they do this is through thier dual language program where they mantain and enrich students first language, Spanish.

I am very proud of my school because I always see them trying to improve the education of my child, trying to find new ways to involve the community in everything they are doing.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 29, 2004

I was a volunteer at PS 24 when my daughter went to the Universal Pre-K program. As a volunteer and as a parent I learned many skills that have helped me to reinforce my daughter's education. The teachers were well prepared and very patient with the children.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
