PS 188 Island School Reviews
This school has a long list of helpful programs for children on different grade levels. Unfortunately, there is also a long list of unprofessionalism from security up to the administrative board. On that note, it trickles down into the classroom and most importantly the students and families. It is a huge fight to get the right thing done, but that fight for what is right is brewing. Hopefully it will conquer before it is too late.
My son has attended this school for 7 month's and since then he has gotten into multiple incidents. He has never been suspended before. He has gotten 5 suspensions in that time. He has had 7 teachers within 4 months and have changed classrooms 3 times. The problem isnt my son its the school. If you are looking for yor child to fail then thats the school for you!. Im looking to switch now. I didnt want to switch in the middle of the year but I have no choice.
