    I am a former student and I graduated as a valedictorian in 2011. I have learned a lot from this school and have made many friends and memories here. The teachers and staff here encourage you to do your best and I also wish I could go back. They don't have American Ballroom Dancing program anymore but I would recommend this school and like other former students have said it was the best times in my life.

    i am an alumni of PS 309 . I graduated as salutatorian in 2005. I am now a senior in high school . PS 309 made elementary school the best times of my life. I still talk to everyone i graduated with and most of us remain close friends. This school has taught me many life lessons and prepared me for the real world. I wish i could go back

    I am a former student of PS 309.It is a good school.There is much support from teachers and staff members to do your best.I graduated valedictorian from there last year. The teachers and students are friendly.There are wonderful programs such as the American Ballroom Dancing program.The same one as in the Mad Hot Ballroom movie. I loved it there and I hope any new students will too.

    My daughter started school there in '99 and it was a great start. The school had some seriously rough times. They were on the Board of Ed's (when it existed)'watch list'. The administration was in bad shape. Principal Fonville and asst princpal Ms. Bernard have worked wonders. The dedicated teachers and staff deal with children from an urban area where it's not always easy to get the message across to the students or parents. Though there plenty of ups & downs - now mostly ups! - my daughter had great learning experience there. She has a love of learning that was recognized and supported wholeheartedly by the teachers and staff. Including the PTA! Sadly this is her last year there she graduated in June as valedictorian. The school's staff is giving everything it's got for the kids. Additional funding from the state/governor would be icing on the cake.
