PS 48 is a wonderful school for children to grow and learn. My child is excelling there and couldn't be happier. The teachers are wonderful and easy to talk to. Communication between faculty and parents is more than I could ask for. It is a very family oriented school and they have a lot of wonderful ...  Read more

It is interesting to note that this school is indeed very good as all the reviews have indicated here and it does deserve the 10 rating. My son had many problems when he was attending pre-school that we were very concern if he can handle the "mainstream" school environment when he entered into kindergarten. ...  Read more
