    "I moved to Spuyten Duyvil in the search of a great public school. Well, PS 24 is considered one of the best in this area, it is organized, have strong parents leadership, and multiple fundraising activities at the cost of parents pockets. PS 24 falls flat when it comes to teaching academic, it does not have an after school program that is free and no homework help unless your child has special needs. If you have a bright kid chances are your child will not be challenge. Teachers are so overwhelmed with over populated classroom and extra curricular activities that they have no time to properly assess their students or to challenge them. Hope the reviews would have given me some insight about this school before I moved here. This is very disappointing and frustrating."

    "PS 24 is an excellent school - my son's first grade teacher was fantastic - she was firm but loving and the kids received a great deal of instruction. In contrast to his kindergarten teacher (at a different school), he loved his first grade teacher. He finished the year receiving all 3s and 4s and reading at grade level. His occupational therapist also had helped improve his writing - so much so that his OT is reduced to 1x per week (vs. 2x/week). The school also offers special clubs during lunch as well as Spanish and Theatre classes. My only regret is that the school goes up to 5th grade and that he'll leave to attend middle school. Parents Association does a PHENOMENAL job in raising money and is relentless in raising funds - having raised $150,000 during one year to pay for additional teachers and programming. The building is old and can use a renovation, but the education is solid."

    "This school is just ok if you have a regular kid. You will surely be disappointed if your kid need special help academically or is very bright that need more challenge. Some teachers are great, some are just so-so. The fact that it is not a union free school make it very difficult to let those long time "so-so" teachers leave. So it's a true hit-or-miss situation every year."

    "My son is in 4th grade at PS 24, and our experience there has been extraordinary. we only wish there was an equivalent middle school in the bronx. every teacher my son has had has been extremely talented. some have been a bit more warm than others, but for the most part the staff is extremely empathetic and they genuinely love their students. The administration is innovative and energetic, and very effective. Like any public institution, there are disgruntled and resentful parents, and you can read their bad reviews here! but pay no heed to them. we have found it very easy to participate in the parent association, and we volunteer regularly. my only complaint about the parents as a whole is that there is considerable resistance among many to contribute to their children's own education. but, that is changing. with every new class, we see more parent involvement and more participation in fundraising, which is great. the money raised by parents has provided smart boards, computers, and trips to lincoln center. I will miss this place when it is time to move on!"
