I hate it. The classroom's are so boring. The teachers act like they would rather be any where else. If you try to get in touch with certain teachers they will give you a stupid explanation about why your grade was like that. Other teachers just won't answer. Others don't care about what parents think. The classes are constantly getting yelled at for behavior even though the teacher lets them act that way. My child is in a honors class and some of the teachers, and I quote, say "This is an SP class?" Others are ignoring students, and then rolling their eyes.

My son is going to this school in September and I hope he will adjust to the new school easily. I never heard anyone said bed things about this school and also today I went to see the school myself and everyone I encountered in the general office were very helpful and caring. I hope teachers in this school are as polite, helpful, knowledgeable, professional and caring as people that work in the office. I also hope all kids there are friendly. I am giving this school 5 stars because I want it to be so.

This is a wonderful school. What a difference from Catholic School. My son did so well he is going to Tech in the Fall. The teachers are accessible and attentive to student's needs. The Vice Principal is extremely hard working and keeps the parents informed. After school program is top notch. The best Middle School on Staten Island by far!

What is being done about bullying? When an older boy can take money from a younger boy and get away with it, what is being taught? How to succeed in the workplace?

From my experience with this school, I find that trying to communicate with your child's teacher presents a challenge. Phone calls do not get returned on a timely basis or none at all. I did find that most of my childs teachers and staff were uncaring and impatient.

the teaching staff and support group, personnel are excellent. Very nice to see teachers and the management give a 100% to the kids. Tough to deal with kids everyday, alot of the children have alot of issues that the school and the teachers deal with it on a daily basis. IS 24 desreves a medal, and this award, the money will go to the children needs, I'm confident the money will do alot of good. Thank you

The new principal is awsome and cares for all staff (teachers,paras,etc) with respect and honesty. He turned this school around and it is now a more positive environment.

I love this school and all of it's employees. The teachers and paraprofessionals are dedicated people who think STUDENT first. Everyone strives to make the students be the best, reach for the stars , and never quit. I have never seen a more together school, a real team.

I am a 7th grade student at i.S. 24 And i am shocked by the comments that just rave about my school! i feel our principle doesn't do here job, teachers can't control there classes half the time, i don't get to learn anything outside of the curriculum. Maybe it's the mayors fault for forcing teachers to teach such silly things but i would love to learn things deeper and in a more hands on experience. I am not to crazy about my teachers, some of them doubt students abilities far to quickly. I do love gym class, i wish we could have foreign language, gym, and talent (performing arts, computers, media, band, art, stagecraft) more than 2 or 3 times a week. I feel as if our assistant principle, mr. Buerrero seems to be working harder then our principle, mrs. O'neil, to make the school better.

The best school I have ever seen. Very good teachers, very good students, and the best principal in the world. The school has very few glitches but, it has to be #1 in America. Brooklyn schools are terrible. This is the best school ever. Defenetly a 5 star school. I.S.24 rocks.

I.S 7 is a good school sometimes I think that it might be lacking behind in the spaecial activities but other than that I think that learning is very important. The principle does a good job and most of the teachers are halpful and nice!

I think the school is wonderful. My son is doing GREAT. The teachers are wonderful, fair, and very helpful. My son is in the band program, and until this year never picked up an instrument, and now he is playing songs. I am able to communicate with the teachers via e-mail. I think it is a wonderful school.

This school is horrible. The students are out of control and no one seems to want to learn anything. The students have no respect for the teachers and class time is wasted on the goofs. No ones seems to care if the students barely make grades good enough to pass. The teachers allow students to be rude towards them and the foul language is ridiculous. Its obvious this school needs help. Just look at their national test scores. This neighborhood is made up of upper-middle class families and its a real disappointment that the parents and school dont expect more from the kids. Dont send your child here unless you dont care if they learn anything.
