Based on regular rankings this school has been going down for a couple of years and my zoned school P.S. 205 (Queens district 26) is so much better in rankings. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated about the G&T at P.S.018 Winchester (Queens Village) vs. my zoned regular school P.S. 205 (Queens district 26). Thanks a lot folks. This will also help me on settling down for a rental choice I have.
    When I toured PS 18, they seemed really overcrowded. They had to give up their newly renovated library because they ran out of classroom space. Personally, if I had a choice between an overcrowded, max capacity school or a good local Zoned school (like PS 205), I would choose P.S. 205.

    Hi Drool6 .. Thanks a lot for your comments. It makes sense and I just don't the get the feeling for PS18 with their scores, given that it is an average of G&T kids and GenEd kids.

    So can you (or someone) please confirm that the G&T kids and GenEd kids take the same tests at the end of their 3rd, 4th and 5th Grades. And if so then a G&T school having low grades will not be my choice. Thanks again to all.

    No Problem. From the open house at another G&T in District 26 I toured (PS115), they mentioned that ratings were based on the whole school test results. The tests should all be the same. I'd be surprised if it was any different.
