    I doubt if one can go by combination of reviews and Ratings.... Saw many schools with below par ratings such as this school (where my son may go starting Sept 2014). This is making me nervous. Its a tough call...

    School 23 is indeed the best school in Yonkers. They were previously taken off the SINI list and were on the front page of a newspaper. It has improved very much and it is continuing to do so. The staff is very poliet and the students as well.

    I live on the east side of town and last year my daughter was sent to attend PRE -K at School 23. I was really nervous but we truly love the school. It is a nice calm caring school. Everybody knows the kids and you feel welcomed when you walk in. The aides at the door greet you with big smiles.
