PS 268 has excellent outreach and communication with parents. I am very disappointed with the cooperation and participation of parents. Parents could help make PS 268 a much better school. Principal and staff work very hard. Parents can meet with teachers every Tuesday after school. The principal Ms. Kirton is very accessible. I know. My children, grandchildren, cousins, nieces, nephews have attended PS 268 since the 1970s. My grandson is in the second grade.

i went to ps268 when i was younger i even sent my son there. the one thing i loved about the school it was like a home away from home . the staff knows your kids by there name and treat their kids as their own even when good or bad behaved.

The teachers at PS268 are excellent! Unfortunately the school is over crowded and there are too many students in each class. Its sad to see such a dedicated school going down hill because of lack of funding.

I have 3 children that have attended PS 268. My son graduated 2 years ago and is now attending one of the top middle schools in Brooklyn, MEPS. My daughters are currently attending this school. Its a smaller school and thats what I love. My children are known personally by the staff, and they are committed to the children's performance and success. I'm extremely dissapointed in the rating of the school because it truly does not reflect the school, its faculty, or the children that have been educated, and nurtured there, this includes me because I graduated PS 268 more than 20 years ago. Its a wonderful school to send your children, and I 'm grateful that me and my children, all had the opportunity to go there.
