  • This is a great school. They started a French class this year. They are always looking to make things better for the children and families that attend. The PTA is working hard and together.

  • i graduated from ps 20 bak n 2003 and i must say everything i learned and know now came from ps 20. this is the best school in brooklyn although some teachers administors and counslers have their faults they are very supportive of the students and the children wil always learn. i am becoming a teacher based on what my teachers in ps 20 have taught mt and i hope to teach there one day n prove the negative regards you have wrong.

  • my sister and i also went to this school starting in 1960 after we moved from the suburbs - as a 'too smart' little white girl with glasses, i got beat up several times - our 6th grade teacher was way old school (and old) and not particularly nice to any of the kids - somehow me getting beaten up was my fault - the principal (i think it was mr. warren) was very nice - i was glad to not have to go back there after only the one year but my sister survived for 3

  • My sister and I went to this school back in 1958 - the 1960's. We loved this school. The majority of the teachers there were nice and kind with the exception of like maybe 3. The principal was nice. And the school was run very well. Ahh those were the days, I will never forget. I wish I could find some of my friends from this school. I only found 1 about 2 or 3 years ago.

  • my child has been in ps20 for about 6 years now. and at the beggining the school was acceptional. however over the years the school has been slacking. there has been no activities for the kids and yes it is begginig to get very ghetto my child thinks that it is fun when the staff principals and teachers are not watching the kids and dont care what they do but children got hurt like that for example a young boy broke his arm and was rushed to the hospital parents do not trust the staff expecially the guidence councler she will harrass your child and CURSE AT THEM!!!thank you and i hope i helped you choose wisley on your schools

  • I think that P.S.20 is one of the best schools in Brooklyn. My sister and I both attended there and my daughter will be graduating from P.S.20 in June.
