(DNAINFO) Emily Frost — A local elementary and middle school has been ranked as one of the two most dangerous in all of Manhattan based on incidents of violence from the past two years, according to the state education department.
P.S. 191, on West 61st Street and Amsterdam Avenue, made a list of the 27 New York City schools designated “persistently dangerous” for the 2015-2016 school year. The only other Manhattan school to make the list was P.S. 123 Mahalia Jackson in Harlem.
Over the past five years, the 490-student school has seen an increase in the number of violent and disruptive incidents, the data showed, while also seeing the size of the school decrease over the past few years.
