My son went to PS 148 for Pre-K. He loved it! And he's very smart, could read at the age of 4. They challenged him at his level, they loved him, they made him feel very special, they made the entire family feel a part of the school community. We are now at a rated '9' school........and we miss PS 148 so much! What a fabulous experience my boy had. That 5 rating should be much higher!

***** Five Stars Please. I have two boys attending this school and they love it. I love the fact they are academically challenged and still love it. Patty Ryan the Parent Coordinator is patient, understanding and supportive of our children in this challenging environment. Thank you!

I attended P.S. 148Q, The Ruby Allen School many years ago. When I attented P.S.148Q, Mrs. Allen was the Principal and she was awesome! Both my children attend P.S. 148Q and I think Mr. Paccione is a wonderful person and he is someone you can easily approach. Ms. Barnett and Mrs. Mustac are awesome. They are 100% dedicated to their students and I thank them for supporting the students academically and emotionally. As parents we need to be more involved in our children's academic studies. If more parents/teachers become involved, we will be a stronger school/community.

This school is run by dedicated, wonderful, and knowledgeable teachers. Teachers are constantly challenging themselves to bring new educational techniques into the classroom. The parent involvement is low; however welcomed.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 28, 2006

I believe PS 148Q to be the best Elementary School in the city. 148 has the best administrators, staff, parents and students. My children were educated there and I am proud to be part of the staff. We offer numerous opportunities for growth and development. Our parents are the best. Home is where the heart is and this is my heart!

About the tests


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. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
