This school was one of the worst I ever worked at. Horrible resources as I was sharing 12 textbooks with 30 kids. The principal is a dictator, the Union rep does more to tell on teachers than to help them. I got written up twice for drinking coffee before 8:10 when my classes started. The principal even gave me a "U" rating without ever observing me once, which is highly illegal. She has also been known to force her teachers to change their grades to make the school look better. Don't send your child here if you want a good education for them.

I worked in this school and was the recipient of being screamed at by the principle often, saw her being a bully to kids and other staff who are too scared to report it and experienced her manipulating the system in her favor. I feel sorry for people who have little options besides this environment. No wonder there are so many issues in our city school systems that are not affluent.

I must say that this school the only things good about it was that there was not much fighting. but besides that the sports programs were not good at all they were very bad in the champs program. the teaching i must say math was the best class. everything else didnt seem to great. but in the school they tell the kids they must get a 3 or 4 to pass the grade but you can also get a 2 but the principle tells the children they will be going to summer school instead of just helping them a little more a encouraging them face to face and that brings the childrens hopes down. IS190 is an okay school for learning but at the same time they can just bring you down and the children that seem to be in the student council get to slack off and get it easier

This school is a outstanding place, where children education is the key focus. I have two children that has graduated from this school. They now are reaching for high goals, because of IS 190 and C.S. 61. My both children will be entering college this year. My 12 year old daughter will be attending this school IS.190 this year and I know that I have made a great choice in her road to obtain a good education. So I give the school Principal, Teachers, Staff and Parents 5 stars.

My son graduated from this school, and i must say that i am well pleased with what they have deposited in my son. Communication was positive, envolment with my son's work was positive and the prinmciple is totatally involved. Now that 2006 is approaching, i enrolled my other children in a catholic school because we moved, now i changed my mind i would rather travel everyday to get them in th same school they brother attended because i am pleased with the outcome. I must add my son till this very day has a relationship with the school and he now attends high school. You will be happy to enroll your child here
