This school is far above average. In addition to excellent teaching, it also tries to help each child as an individual. As a grandmother, I can say from experience that this school is a perfect choice for our youngsters.

I see my grandchildren learning and growing every day. They love to go to school and that is the foundation for learning.

My daughter is in the Kindergarten class at PS180 and I love the school . The classes are small and the teachers are very well positioned to give their pupils a brilliant start into a positive and exciting experience which is so crucial for them. As a parent I have numerous opportunities to be involved and I always feel welcome and listened to, when I deal with anyone at the school. PS 180 ROCKS!

PS/IS 180 Hugo Newman is an excellent Pre K-8th grade school right in the heart of Harlem (120th Street and Morningside Ave)and it is currently one of the top 10 schools in the city from grades Pre K-8. The school has also received various local & national awards and its chess team came in 8th place in the Junior HS 750 and under section at the Chess Nationals in Minnesotta. What's even more impressive is that most of the students who competed in that section were either in fourth or fifth grade! Some of the students were also interviewed by a major news network for their excellence in education. PS/IS 180 Hugo Newman is wonderful example of 'Yes We Can' in education. Mr. O

The school is wonderful. The staff is very friendly, there is a full-time social worker on staff who knows every child and checks up on each of them when they need some extra attention. Issues that arise are addressed immediately and every child is seen and heard. The parent coordinator could not be nicer. The parents we got to know are wonderful, interesting and warm people. We love the music teacher who goes out of his way to meet all the kids (even the pre-k kids whom he is not teaching). We could not be happier wit this school.

Dedicated team, great standards, hard working and my nephew and niece love it


Posted April 26, 2010

We moved countries from Australia to the US and landed in Harlem NY not knowing what to expect. This school exceeded expectations to such an extent that we rave about it to everyone. We are complete and absolute PS180 evangelists. It's just the best we have ever seen. Passionate, dedicated, smart and caring. We consider ourselves among the luckiest parents in all of New York.

I loved PS 180 because I was able to see the school from both sides. I was a teacher at 180 for 8 years and a parent at the school for 6 years. My daughter was a student from PreK to 4th grade and her experiences at 180 prepared her to go to any school in any state at be prepared to excel at any program. We are currently living in Maryland and she is continuing to excel. As a teacher at 180 I loved, loved waking up every morning knowing that this was where I worked. The parents were amazing , the students were awesome and the administration made it a place where you felt appreciated and felt that your opinion counted. I deeply miss my colleagues, students, parents and neighborhood. It is a rare experience where you love a school so much that you consider them your family. We often go back to visit and I still get the same feeling of excellence walking through the doors. Working at 180 has shown me excellence in action. I love teaching and I know that there is a 180 in Maryland, if not I will just have to create one. I highly recommend this school with no reservations.

As a veteran of over 35 years in the NYC school system, I have taught in enough venues to know quality education. PS/IS 180 is a school that aspires to live up to the title 'A 'College Preparatory School'. Working with administration and staff on a common goal, education that will allow middle school graduates to get into the best high schools with regents credit as they proceed along a track that will ensure entrance to a competitive college has been my dream. At 180 it is becoming a dream fulfilled.

PS 180 Hugo Newman College Prep. School has become not only the begining of our children's future but an extension of our family. The school's ranking is an incredible result of quality education delivered in a structured and caring environment. Thank you, to Dr. McFarland and the staff of the school for always being there and providing something extra for our children.

My grandson, Dylan attends PS 180 and I have visited there often to see him preform in plays and other events. The teachers and staff are phenomenal and the atmosphere and friendliness that they exude is unsurpassed. And I love the open door policy of the Administrative staff. I am confident that Dylan is learning all that he will need to help him become an inspirational and great citizen of this country that we live in.

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.

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 different student groups are identified by the New York Department of Education. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

In 2009-2010, this school was given a grade of "C" for the elementary and middle school level.

About the tests


Progress Report Grades measure the school's contribution to student learning in three areas: School Environment, Student Performance and Student Progress. Schools can receive additional credit for achieving exemplary performance progress among high-needs students. Progress Report Grades range from A to F.

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.
