I have 2 girls in PS 84, the eldest in 3rd grade. We really like the school, all of the teachers have been very good, academically as well as personally. They really know the kids, their strengths and weaknesses. Principal Sundick is very connected with the school and has her finger on the pulse.
... Read more She knows the children by name, and who's class they attend. She also knows many of the parents by name and child/dren belonging to them. That is a feat! The principal has a tough job. She has tons to juggle with many details and all within the complex DOE regulations. She does so well while remaining calm and very good natured. Remarkable!! There is a very active bunch of parents at school. They are friendly and welcoming. There are lots of activities organized by the PTA, movie night, book fair, international pot luck dinner, spring fair, etc. In which parents work together to create the event and parents and children attend. I have frequently heard of parents donating books, paper and school supplies to the school. I feel that the school is really a community in which the children, parents and administration know each other and work to the benefit of the whole. Read less

My daughter is in second grade in the dual language Spanish program, and we could not be happier. The teacher is outstanding, the principal shows wonderful leadership, and the parental involvement is extremely high. After coming out of a "boot camp" style charter school, this is what school should be.

Our daughter went to Pre-Kindergarten at PS84 and had a terrific experience. For Kindergarten, we won a much coveted lottery spot at MSC (PS 333). Given the reviews and reputation we could not miss this opportunity, so we switched schools. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a poor decision for our daughter.
... Read more When we looked to change back to PS84 in the middle of the school year, we were thrilled that she was welcomed back. It felt like being home again. The teachers and administration have been great. As PS84 is gaining momentum again and neighborhood children are now attending the school, it is truly a gem on the UWS. The parent involvement has been getting stronger with each year. Read less

My son has been at this school for three years as a part of the dual language program, and so far he has done well, I must say that his teachers are wonderful, involved teachers that strive for excellence. We at times want to blame the school for what it is not doing rather than looking at ourselves
... Read more as parents for what should be doing to be a part of our childrens education. I have overall been very satisfied with ps 84, one thing I can say is faculty and staff are trying to help this school and its students excel, however some of our parents need to step up and get involved. Thanks ps 84 for your hardwork and dedication! Read less

As a teacher, I know that all the teachers in PS 84 are hard working and we truly care for our students. We try our best to help and guide our students to achieve in academic areas as well as to guide them to be a leader in this world. Because we know that life can be 'hard' for some of our students...

My child has been in this school for 5 years. This school is also very quick to label a child and say they are going to help you but in reality only give negative feedback on the child and not really help. All they do is just label them and inform the other teachers of the child's disabilities or issues
... Read more that they may have. Instead of keeping it private and letting the new teachers get to know the child on there own. They need to have an investigator watch them in action. It would really help. My child instead of getting better they are fustrated and always saying that there picking on them. They have no patients for children that have issues or disibilities. Rescue these children in needs from this school. Education is very important and there not really get that. No motivations to want to go to school. Help! Read less
