Greetings Everyone! I've been reading everyone's comments and all have been helpful, although I have been getting mixed singles with some postings. But I'm thinking of relocating to Yonkers and I'm a bit unfamiliar with choosing the right, safe neighborhoods for my two boys and not to mention I'm a bit limited because I don't have a car. I'm looking for low income rental so I figured I would base majority of my apartment search on or near a good middle school, although I have one child in college and the other in middle (nuts)..But how is the living area around Patricia A Dichiaro school or any neighboring schools? And if anyone know if colleges are near as well that would be great as well.. Any suggestions or resources are welcome...

This has to be one of the best schools in yonkers I have been thrilled that we were able to achieve this excellence in yonkers. Why leave when some of the best free schools are sitting right under our noses.

The most amazing Principal EVER! Principal Langan is an amazing person and leader. She is a real mentor to her teachers and staff. My kids love going to school and part of that is beacuse Ms. Langan has created a positive school culture! I think she knows the names of all the kids!! She is that person that my kids will remember when they are adults and think back. Thank you Ms. Langan for truly caring abouth our kids, A.S

My Grandson is enjoying the school and he is learning a lot. Keep up the good work school 8. And may God continue to bless your wonderful principal and staff. Grandma Brenda

I LOVE this school! First Principal Langan is an amazing person and a true leader! Without her, DiChiaro would not be where it is. I always tell her that she's never allowed to retire :-). The teachers are also amazing. My daughter, who is in Kindergarden, loves her teacher. My daughter has had a difficult time listening and following directions, and the teacher brought it to our attention and has worked with us in getting my daughter to behave and without her, we could not have accomplished as much as we have in the course of a few months! Thank you!

This school is one of the best in the Yonkers public school system; the school is small and the teachers and staff have a very caring attitude toward the students. Academically, they focus on literacy and have really fostered my son's creativity.

I absolutely LOVE DiChiaro.... My daughter has been there since Kindergarten. Ms. Langan and EVERY member of her staff has been a positive influence in my daughter's education. It is very family oriented and every month there is something fun to do at the school. THere is never a day where she does not want to go to school. What does that say????

I highly recommend this school. I have 2 children in this school and we all love it. It is a friendly, encouraging environment. The Principal is awesome, the parents are involved and the sponsored programs are great.

I recomend Dichiaro to any parent and student. I have 2 children who already attend this school fourth and second grade and my 3rd will be joining pre-k in Sept. Every teacher my child has had was amazing. The principal is very hands on, and knows all her students by name. She is always on call when you need her, and very attentive and yet very respected by all the students. The parents and PTA are very friendly, and I consider myself to be very lucky to have found a public school such as Dichiaro. Kellie Sestak

I recommend this school all the time. My two boys go here (5th grade and 2nd grade) and if we weren't moving out of the area, my daughter would be going there in the fall. Even though Yonkers doesn't have neighborhood schools, DiChiaro has a neighborhood feel. Parents are involved and the teachers and staff know every student & parent. My kids take the bus and I don't get to as many PTA meetings as I would like due to scheduling conflicts and everyone at the school still knows me by name. Teachers are extremely patient and kind but will be tough when necessary (which I personally think is a good thing). It's too bad it only goes to 5th grade! We had a great experience there.

Academically my child has improved. My son was transferred to a bronx school and he couldn't read within two months my son was sounding out words and identifing words. I love one of my guidance counceolrs mrs. Scheei. She keeps me up to date with my son. If there was any problem she never hesitated to call me and i never resisted the call. The teachers were great. Mrs. Cailoa, mr.Shrade. And mrs. Giambaldo had made the transition of being in yonkers a success.

Every time I attend a PTA meeting or go to any school function, I am humbeled by the level of comittment by EVERYONE at this school. Each child is treated as if they were part of the family. They have been working without a contract, but you'd think they were paid like executives, the way they work. I consider myself lucky to have my daughter in this wonderful caring environment. The consitently score as high as the Perls school for gifted children on the standard state tests. I love this school.

We just moved away from NY. My children have been to DiChiaro since Kindergarten. What a wonderful school, staff, Principal. Ms. Langan was always willing to help in anyway she could. When I looked into the schools in new location I think I came to picking the best school the closest to what DiChiaro offered. I was very upset leaving all the wonderful staff. I have nothing but praise for this school. In my opinion this is the best elementary school in Yonkers, NY. -Joann Hracs

My two oldest boys attend DiChiaro and we absolutely love it! Pat Langan, the prinicpal, is outstanding. This is our third year with the school and it gets better every year. My boys are receiving a top notch education and the best part is--the school is up the street from our home! It's an excellent school and has an outstanding faculty that fosters a community feel throughout the school!

My daughter has been attending DiChiaro since Kindergarten. I am so impressed with the academic excellence maintained at this school! In a district where most of the other schools fail to meet state standards, this school is a shining star! Kudos to the principal and all the teachers for their involvement with the students, for a well-rounded curriculum and for inspiring a happy and safe setting for the children.
