PS/MS188 is a wonderful school. The staff is full of love caring and motivated individuals that are the best role models a student can have. The school has a safe and welcoming environment, there are so many extra curricular activities such as flag football, tennis, violin classes and a chorus.

My grandkids have been going to this school for about two years now. I would like to compliment the principal, assistant principal, teachers and staff who have welcomed all four of my grandkids in. They have all been patient respectful understanding and have always been active with them from day one. Unlike their previous schools they have attended. They are very polite and take their time with each child individually. I love that they have extra activities for the students to join.

Although I am a staff member at this school I am a parent of 4 children and for this reason my comments come from the heart of a parent! Our teachers and staff truly teach from the heart!.. They are not only involved in the academics of our students but truly care about developing a well rounded child which includes but is not limited to academics, social and economical development.. We offer a great deal of support, programs and incentives not only to our students but to our parent body as well. We are here to educate not only our students but our families as well.

P.S. 188 The Island School is raising the bar! The school has become an absolute model for the community. As a parent, I have seen my child's success and her increasing academic achievements. This school overall works really well as a team... Thank you so much,

I am a parent of a 5th grader in this school and never had any complaints...thought the school was wonderful, until my younger son, who gets related services and started kindergarten this year. It is a nightmare. Especially since nobody at the school including the principal doesn't give you a straight answer on my sons services. I am very disappointed. I thought the stories of how the public schools are not very compliant and are very unreliable when it comes to children with related services.

PS 188 is a a great school for every child. 188 has a very dedicated, caring,and commited staff where a low performance child can get all that support and tutoring to succeed academically and high performance students are challenged as well. PS 188 is a happy, safe environment. Our students always have a smile even after a long day of hard work. Students arrive at 7:00 A.M. and leave at 7:30 P.M. This a big plus. I highly recomend parents to visit PS 188.

I have my twin boys attending this school at the present time. We couldn't be any happier and proud to have our kids attending such a wonderful school. The outstanding leadership of the principal and assistant principal, the dedicated and wonderful teachers, the kind and exceptional stuff, especially the parent coordinator and everybody from the afterschool program, and the motivated students make of this the most wonderful learning experience for any kid. This is a school of outstanding academic standards and the children are treated with care and respect. Keep up the amazing job PS 188!

This is definitely one of the highest achieving public schools in NYC. The rankings as measured by standardized tests are consistently among the top, and the quality of education the children gets is just excellent. I know many parents who move to this neighborhood because of this school.

P188 is great when it counts... Role Models. Their staff really help the kids on a daily bases. I saw how Ms Almonte was reaching out, concern over my son missing homework in math. We stepped it up and my boy was able to graduate, because he passed his city-wide math exam. Thank You. I definitely recommend this school.

My son just graduated from this school and I have nothing but great things to say about The Island School. Eventhough he was only there for a year, I am proud to say that the education and preparation that has been provided to him for High School has been exceptional. The teachers are kind, dedicated and have great expectations for the students. And last but not least Ms. Ramos is a great leader who practices an open door policy and was always available to update me on my son's progress or downfalls.

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.
