I'm grateful that PS 24 is a school where my daughter feels safe. A safe enviorenment is necessary for growth and learning. However when it comes to accademics I find that the school is not as rigorous as it should be. I wish that they were to best equip our children in the tools necessary for success.
Ps 24 is a public elementary school in New York. The principal of Ps 24 is PRINCIPAL - MS. ROSE SILVA DUBITSKY and can be contacted at email@example.com. 692 students attend Ps 24 and are mostly Hispanic; Asian; and White, non-Hispanic. 50% of the Ps 24 students are "limited in English proficiency." 96% of the 692 students here are paying reduced lunch prices. The ratio of students to teachers at Ps 24 is 12:1. Ps 172 Beacon School Of Excellence is one of the nearest elementary schools.

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.
my school is multicultural. the school has a dual language program offered from grades pre-k-5. it is an awesome school the staff is as well very helpful.
I love PS24 because it dosnt leave a child behind and they also have the dual language program in which students learn inglish and spanish.
I love P.S. 24 because It does not leave a child behind in studie. Any help provided to the school is distributed to help children suceed to the max.
My daughter had a wonderful experience at this school. She is bilingual and is in middle school now and doing great both academically and socially.
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.
Great loving bi-lingual school that focuses on social and emotional learning!
This is a great place to be a kid. Seriously we love being a part of this school...
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.
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.
