I love this school. My son is in Pre-K, and I couldn't hope for a warmer, more welcoming, more attentive classroom experience for him. The teacher and assistants clearly love children and make them feel so welcome and appreciated. My son is in bilingual Pre-K (Spanish/English) with German enrichment classes as well. I'm so happy he's starting his schooling experience in this delightful atmosphere. We're putting PS 18 as our top choice for kindergarten -- after attending an open house, I love the school even more. A new gym is being built (in addition to their schoolyard), the German classes are delightful (the kids seemed to be having so much fun), and the level of involvement, enthusiasm and skill demonstrated by the principal and staff is so impressive. The school is growing and developing, and wants to be a integral part of the community. So glad we're part of it.
