New York State Assessments (NYSA)

Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.

    My daughter is a 7th Grader at MS 88. Overall administration and faculty members are very responsive to parents. My daughter has always been shy. I was afraid that MS 88 would not be a good fit for her but it is. Her performance is better in Middle School compared to elementary school. I recommend MS 88 to parents and students.

    My daughter attends MS 88. She's currently a 7th Grader in the Medical house. It is a really good school. Administration and faculty are very responsive to parents. All in all my daughter is having a great middle school experience. She is doing better in middle school than she did in elementary. I recommend this school.

    This school isn't the best...The teachers wastes too much time on the students who doesn't behave."I don't tolerate any of this in my class! Get outside! This is your last warning!" *Fake calls the dean*... I know for sure that the teachers are hard working and it's just the students who are making this a bad school some teacher doesn't even care There's teachers who makes you work alot and you don't learn anything from the work. It's a waste of time I don't want to name anyone but I would prefer Dyker Heights or Middle School 51. If your in this school I suggest you being in a Delta class. The other classes the teacher makes you do writing everyday and it's a total waste of time believe me.

    I graduated from this school in '09 and i loved it . I have a interesting experience in this school when i went to high school and told people about this school a lot of them were freaked out bbut wished they went there. The teachers ARE YOUNG! and kinda not normal!!!! They may be different from normal middle school teachers but for the better and i learned a lot from them you can be in a sad mood when class is done you're laughing. I toke the regents because high grades which is AWESOME!!!! If you want the most out of this experience like me i suggest you go to the medical house! =] i went there and you won't believe that 2 of teachers were on tv!!! I love this school it helped me with my grades socially and to love school again!!! AWESOME!!!!

    The teachers are very young which is not always a bad thing but some lack experience with the kids. There are 3 schools within one with 3 different vice principles. One of the schools has a great vp - the others are lazy at best. There is no parent involvement what so ever so with state funding lacking there is no fund raising to help take up the slack. Oh the only fundraising that works and continues is that they allow candy sales within the school so the kids are always on a sugar high.

    As a senior in ms88 i am poundly to say that ms88 is one of the top middle schools in brooklyn this year i had achieved alot in my studies! The teachers inside the school are nice and they also care about their students in and out of school. also if you achieved alot in school you get alot of good things in their ex - because thanks to my studies and high grades i was choosen to go to the senior trip for free! i personally say that 88 is the best school in so many differnet ways i can't even say so.

    As an alumni middle school 88 was a great school. My former classmates were a bit hard to handle but the teachers got through it and in the end the students learned something even if they weren't paying attention. Great teachers at the school and they know what they are talking about.

    Some of the best teachers in the region teach at middle school 88. The teachers are relentlessly dedicated and caring. The students albeit somewhat challenging by the time they are in eighth grade are achieving at a higher level than when in sixth and are infinitely better mannered thanks to their and their teachers' hard work.
