    My daughter studies in this school and It is really a good school. The teachers are very good and the principal is excellent. She is very communicative and friendly with kids. There is lot of improvement in my daughters learning. The school environment is neat and clean classrooms auditorium and cafeteria is well maintained. I hope they maintain these standards for ever.

    I attended this school thirty years ago and am proud and relieved to say this is still a great school. My son is now attending kindergarten here. The teachers are very caring prepared dedicated. communicative and involved. The staff is very hospitable and the principal takes great pride in the school. The curriculum and standards are a bit aggressive to meet NY Board of Ed's new criteria but the children seem to be learning and absorbing it. Very happy with this school.

    Yes this is a very good school. My son has been there for last two years and he has really improved on all fronts including discipline.

    I couldn't be happier that both my children have had the opportunity to attend this school. They offer music programs and bring in additional programs like dancing and singing to support the school curriculum. The teachers are very caring and highly qualified and the administration constantly strives to meet the needs of the community. They offer parent-child workshops at PTA meetings and has a staff that is ready to offer any assistance to the parents to help our children to succeed. It is a great school.

    My daughter went to P.S. 24 from 1st grade to part of 6th grade and she enjoyed everything about it. By 3rd grade she had learned to play the recorder and by 4th grade she learned the cello. They have annual musicals which are amazing and really proves how well their music program is. The teachers were wonderful and very nice. The principal Ms. Golan was great also. I reccomend this school to anyone who needs a school in the Flushing area!
