What Parents are Saying
“As a new parent at PS 20, it’s very exciting for me to see all the new programs and energy going into making PS 20 great. I chose this school not only because of what it is today, but really because of where I feel it’s going.”
“This is our second year here in the dual-language Mandarin program at PS 20 and it’s definitely worth the trip in from Booklyn. The people, the energy, the caring, the optimism, the community, the diversity – I feel like we really found a hidden gem.”
“I’ve been a parent here at PS 20 for a while now and the PS 20 of today is night and day from what it was. I feel incredibly optimistic about the future here. It’s going to be one of those schools that families from all over the city come to join.”
