When I first came to this school In the 2nd grade I knew no one ,and when your a young 7 year old girl that's pretty scary but as I kept going day by day I felt better and the amazingly kind teachers really were a big part in that and over this 4yr period at 203 I gained Many friends as I also gained a lot of knowledge and as I kept my grades up and teachers helped me in the end I graduated as class of 2012 ,and went into 6th grade with all honor classes ,and at this time I'm going to high school and I believe that ps203 really helped me with the base of education and I thank them for that . So,I would highly recommend this school they are nurturing with the special needs kids,help misbehaving kids,and actually care about you.
