    "I have one child who graduated last year and another in 5th grade this year. Both have attended since kindergarten. I love this school! It is a warm family with a perfect mix of traditional academics (including French for all grades) and wonderful progressive arts (university level art teacher). This school also has an amazing brass band where the children don't just play, they truly learn to read music. My eldest child graduated perfectly equipped to enter the middle school of her choice and ace her first year so far! The Principle, Ms. Barbera, is smart, warm and approachable. I will cry at graduation this year when my baby leaves...because it means I have to leave too :("

    "P.S. 20 is certainly among the most competitive elementary schools in district 13. The school has done an exceptional job at navigating through a tough transition period that was exacerbated by city wide budget cuts, and the principal (Mrs. Barbera) has managed to establish an environment that blends the open/creative approach that characterized her tenure as AP at P.S. 261 with the rigorous curriculum approach that once made P.S. 20 the talk of the playground... Not only that, but it's incredibly hard to find an elementary school in this district that is this intimate AND open to all students in the district. Definitely a stellar school with a lot going on and a lot for parents to keep an eye on..."

    "What's striking about PS 20 is how much is going on there. Everyday my 5-year old comes home excited about school, often talking about a new and unexpected experience -- whether it's an art project, a poetry book, a piano class, or a new French word. All this combined with engaged, experienced teachers dedicated to the students has made for a fulfilling year. In kindergarten, many of the kids in my son's class are already reading and doing basic math. There is also a solid and active PTA, with a lively, new principal (Lena Barbera) working to bring exciting programs to the school including a horticulture program called PS 20 farms, and a science partnership with Brooklyn College. This school impresses on many levels."
