    I used to be a student in this school from 1st grade to 5th grade. It was so amazing to be in P.s.20 in Port Richmond. The teachers were very nice and were really good at teaching the kids at this school. I LOVE & MISS you P.S.20 -Maria Aziz )

    I had my three daughters attend this school.They attended for two years. The teachers are exceptional always on top of things. If you have any problems they are always ready to help you and your child understand things.The programs they offer are wonderful before and after school helped my girls a lot with there reading and math work/tests.Mrs.Munzos is a wonderful and very brilliant women for all that she has done for the children and the school. She cares about each and everyone of the students. I had a wonderful experience with this school.

    This school has made some progress but there's still a lot of work to do. They need to add more programs for the kids and be more challenging.
