teachers are good,but parking and picking up children ends up being a ticket frenzy for cops,there should be school busses!principal has to learn the difference between parents and students when speaking to them!she can be very judgemental and obnoxious.

Nearly 4 generations of my family attended this school. The teachers are amazing and are always willing to take time out to help students in need. P.S.21 is a wonderful place. It gives off the right message to students and helps them to grow throughout their years in attendance.

My son attended PS21 for Kindergarten and the First Grade. The staff is dedicated, but I was upset that the school does not have classes to accommodate special needs kids. Other than that, the school is fine.

It's my first year teaching at PS 21. I have taught at other schools and within other programs. Many times I have heard the term 'family' thrown around, but I've never actually experienced the feeling before. Administration, teachers and students honestly care about each other which fosters a true sense ...  Read more
