This schools seems very limited in activities, I wonder how this school can be ranked well with such limitations?

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 OST program, and the motivated students make of this the most wonderful learning experience for any kid. This is a school of outstanding academic standars and the children are treated with care and respect. Keep up the amazing job ps 188! Margarita.

Being in the 'magnet' or 'gifted' class gave me a great experience in my five years. I have to say I am rather impressed by the teachers and the faculty, along with the success rate. Many children in the magnet class of 2008 now attend several advanced schools, such as the Anderson School, Hunter College High School and various private schools in NYC. I can only expect great things to come out of the future children who come here and the alumni of this school.

I have two daughters in the school's gifted program. Students and teachers are very motivated under the principal's leadership.

This is definitely one of the highest achieving public schools in NYC. The rankings as measured by standardized tests are consistently among the top 5, and the quality of education the children gets is just excellent. I know many parents who move to this neighborhood because of this school.
