Open Quote I went to P.S.188 for seven years and I loved every second of it. I didn’t even want to miss school. Especially in fifth grade I knew if I didn’t go to school I would miss out on fun things! I like loved ps188. Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter transferred from PS203 to PS188 for Kindergarten. The teachers are very nice and the school has strong academic focus, especially for reading and writing. There are not as much art/music/drama programs as at PS203. Great parent-teacher communication and PTA involvement. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
