Open Quote I am a former student, graduated 2001. The school has definitely had its fair share of bullying of students without help of adult intervention and a lot of discrimination and racism has prevailed among the student body but I think this can be turned around. It will take some time because the education and respect a child learns is from both parents and teachers, a two way relationship. I think the school should pursue hiring of teachers who truly and genuinely care about the education of students and engage the parents in opportunities as well. I admit, in 2001, the separation of those who were able to afford a secure future upon attending this school was wide but now with the amount of resources available, all it takes is a little discipline, perseverance, and cognition to turn the future of many kids who attend this school around.

Open Quote The Anna Silver School offers all that I ask for for my two precious toddlers. Safe, caring and bilingual learning environment. Since the school year started, my Pre-Kindergartener and 1st Grader have been looking forward to see their teachers and classmates every day. The principal, Ms Sarah Pinto and assistant principle, Ms Carrie, have been nothing short of attentive and enthusiastic. What more can a parent ask for? Perhaps academic excellence perhaps more emphasis on providing student what they need to excel bilingually. However, it takes time, patience and a lot of parental support. I am extremely happy with the school and look forward to my children blossoming as they grow up in PS20M. Close Quote

Open Quote the level of professionalism among the staff is awful here. with the exception of a few people i have not had a pleasant experience. Due to the large class sizes,bullying and lack of administration participation i pulled my daughter out and took her to a better school. the principal has zero control of the school and does not know how to interact with the parents.

Open Quote I should have read the insideschools.org review (“DOWNSIDE: Test scores improving but still too low”) before enrolling my child at this school. I was pleased with the education my child was getting on the lower grades but once my child got into the third grade and took the NYS ELA and Math tests, my child failed. Now my child has to go to summer school and possibly get held over. I expressed my concerns to Mr. Lee earlier in the school year but they were never addressed. He brushed it off and assured me that my child was getting a quality education. I know better than to trust him on his word now. I will be transferring my child to another school next year, not only because of test scores but also because of the large class sizes and the bullying at this school. Close Quote

Open Quote I have twins that go here. It is the luck of the draw at this school. In one class, the teacher goes above and beyond and my child is doing well. In the other class, my other child is not learning very much. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
