My Pre K son attends this school 2013-1014. I am IN LOVE with the school, faculty, and parents (for the most part; but can only speak to the lower grades). This school has a reputation for being 'rough', which it is a little bit (20% in lower grades). The PTA and faculty are extremely dedicated to ...  Read more

PS 191. This school works. Check the test scores, as the students move up through the grades their scores get better which indicates that the school is actually teaching the children. The partnership with museums is a plus. Music and Dance instruction in the lower grades is also bonus

The only time I saw her is when I arrived and she was very abrupt and told me that I had a group of ...  Read more

These teachers care! At first I was nervous about sending him. However, the scores online DO NOT depict what ...  Read more

I am the proud parent supporter of The Museum Magnet school for Inquiry Innovation and Imagination formerly known as PS 191. I am writing on behalf of my daughter to commend her Pre-K G-6 teachers for all their leadership, commitment, hard work, and support throughout year. I expected great things this ...  Read more

We have had a great experience with the preK program this year. The teachers and the staff--particularly the parent coordinator, Damaris Carrion--are dedicated and wonderful. I am excited about the direction this school is headed as the Museum Magnet school. My son gets free art classes from Studio in ...  Read more

I remember pouring over online reviews in the yr before my little guy started pre-K. I hoped to find a school that would be fun, challenging, and enjoyed; a perfect fit. His year of preschool (year before PS 191) was abysmal. He attended a wonderful, expensive, very social preschool. My son hated it. ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 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 results for English language arts and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles and the science results will be added when they are released in the Fall of 2013. 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.
