My child is in preK at PS 20 and we couldn't be happier with the school. The principle is articulate, caring and committed.

* In 2011-2012 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The results for English language arts and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles and the science results will be added when they are released in the Fall of 2013.

The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
