    My son is a student and I like this school. I wish parents would get more involved. I would recommend this school.

    This is the worse school my daughter have ever attended she has went from an A and B honor roll student to making 2. Explaination from teachers is that no one get 4's unless they get 4's on everything. The staff at this school do not push students they only come in to do s job and do not care whether students get educate or not

    This school is wonderful! My child has attended since kindergarden and is now leaving the second grade. She is in the Sigma program and her teachers are excellent. only thing is that they need a physical education class but overall pure excellence!!

    I am a parent of a beautiful daughter that attends this great school. She is in the SIGMA program there. She has a wonderful teacher Mrs. Picagallo whom spends a great deal of time with her students and she takes out the time to speak with me after work hours from home when I want to ask about my daughter Niya. P.S. 188 is a school that I would definitely recommend for parents to have their child attend.
