As a student of is24, this is no place for your child to be getting the education they need. Everything is horrible! Specifically the staff. No one is working with you. Everyone is working against you. Its like they don't want you to graduate. Everyday I face a new challenge that I will never overcome.And every day I don't take care of it, it just builds up more and more. the challenge may be stopping other kids from messing with me because I am different and unique, or putting up with the teachers that over work all the students. My point is...AVOID THIS SCHOOL.

Principal, Assistant Principal and the Dean of IS 24 have made my child's transition to middle school a very good experience for my child and myself. Thank you!

The teachers in this school are very effective, they know each child very well and are determined to teach every child to the best of their ability.

I have no complaints at all about the amount of home work. I feel the amount is just right.

I feel grit and determination comes from the child individually, but IS 24 definitely gives every opportunity for a child to learn team work and persistence.

My child is respectful and he has been praised for his behavior; the school treats their children with respect and they value it in return.

I see this in every action by the staff and in my interactions with them at every parent teacher meeting.

School leadership is amazing and they do a great job. Nice to be in a school where the staff members (from top to bottom) care so much about my child. Love the after school program as well.

I have a child in this school unfortunately because of zoning. My child has been bullied with no consequence to the bully. Violence is obviously permitted in this school. The principal is a rude horrid man,who in my opinion, should not be in charge of one child let alone hundreds. Hopefully does not have children of his own since he obviously doesn't care about the safety of children left in his care everyday. Hoping to have my child switched to another school.
