    I really miss this school...although i no longer live in ny i live in nc no school and no teacher will be as cool as mrs.washington she was my favorite teacher and p.s.18 was my favorite school

    I was a student at P.S.18 from '92-'97 and it was my experience there that encouraged me to pursue teaching as a career. I am now working as a special education teacher and love every second of it and I've Mrs. Carol Mrs. Jordan Mrs. Hynes and especially Mrs. Spero to thank. They believed in me and taught me how to believe in myself. Where I come from that means more than an above average score on any standardized test.

    Teachers need to work better with the parent coordinator to improve parental involvement which is necessary for our children to thrive!

    As a parent of two children attending this school I have to say I am quite satisfied with the principal and vice principals performance(s). The teachers as most of the staff are very helpful and committed to having both the children and the school thrive. The kitchen staff is wonderful and loving especially our beloved Mrs.Nelson. Parental involvement could use some improvement but along with the pta and the parent coordinator we will achieve this shortly.

    The teachers work hard in this school to provide truly involving classroom activities. Unfortunately many discipline problems within the classes prevent the teachers from doing an effective job and there is not nearly enough art/music/enrichment programming.
