Why Choose PS 307?

“As a DUMBO family with two small children, the oldest of whom is currently attending pre-K at PS 307, our experience has been wonderful. It is obvious to us that the staff, students, and current community care deeply about the school and have been successful in creating a fostering learning environment.” -Parents of Oscar, DUMBO Resident and Pre-K student at PS 307 (below in turquoise shirt)

“We very thoughtfully chose PS 307 because of its fantastic four clusters of programming; art, music, Mandarin and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Additionally, Daniel Hale Williams as a Magnet School, has advanced resources like its science lab, robotics team, smart boards and tables that nurture our son’s growing interest in technology. As a family who lives outside the zone, we instantly felt the sense of community thriving at PS 307, and decided we wanted to be a part of it.” -Parents of Jacob, Ridgewood Resident and Kindergarten student at PS 307

“We choose to travel over 30 minutes back and forth each day for the specialized programming that PS 307 provides. We love the multitude of options our kids have for extra-curricular activities. Another thing that really drove us to send our children here is the diversity at the school.” -Parents of Brenda and Mauricio, Midwood Residents and Kindergarten (Brenda)/ 3rd Grade (Mauricio) student at PS 307

“We were attracted to PS307 due to the convenience of a short walk to school (vital in Winter) and the Magnet program that sees my son learn Mandarin and music each week. The teaching staff have been incredibly enthusiastic and my son loves going to school each day.” – Parents of Max, Downtown Brooklyn Resident and Pre-K student at PS 307
