    My daughter is in Kindergarten at the school and the level of work she's doing just boggles the mind. The school really challenges the kids and keep them competitive. My oldest graduated 2 years ago and was very well prepared for Junior High. The school teaches the subjects and also life skills from study skills to keeping organized... I LOVE IT!

    This is one of the best elementary schools in Brooklyn. I graduated 5th grade the year of 2011. I was learning in this school since kindergarten and it gave me a great education. I really enjoyed it here.

    My little brother loves this school! The teachers are hands-on and the school lunch is good (an inexpensive option - and surprisingly good for a public school price). the kids there are most often well-behaved and they have amazing afterschool programs from dance to educational to jazz. They are a little selective and maybe hard to schedule but the children REALLY love the afterschool programs

    My daughter has been in the gifted program at P.S 312 since kindergarten. I love this school. It has such a warm nurturing and loving environment(small setting). The teachers really care. This is an excellent school.

    PS312 is truly a community school. Children who enter experience a warm friendly and loving atmosphere. Teachers are very caring and they work very hard to ensure that every child is performing at their best. In addition the administration and assistants are very helpful and resourceful providing parents with guidance when needed. The parent teacher association works tirelessly to ensure that the school is not lacking in additional funds and support. They enable the school to go the extra mile to provide services to the students. When my son walks through the doors at PS 312 I am confident that he will be in a loving and supportative environment that ensures he is performaning at his best and meeting his academic goals. PS 312 is his home away from home.

    I went to P.S. 312 in the late 80's and early 90's. It was a great small school with caring teachers.

    My sons both attend 312. 7 yr old & 4 yr old boys love the diversity of the school and staff. My 7 yr old has been in the gifted program since Kindergarten. My 4 yr old just tested for the gifted Eagke program as well. I love this school in Brooklyn. The bergen Beach area is great to live in and great school to go with the area.

    PS 312 The Bergen Beach School is absolutely wonderful. The teachers and curriculum are great. My son is entering kindergarten this year. But last year in Pre-K I was surprised to find that out of all his friends he was one of the few receiving homework assignments with books to read with sight words. We also enjoyed book fairs plant sales special occasion parties after school programs computer and library access and extra curricular activities throughout the year. The school was also involved with a lot fundraising and charitable events. Overall the school is excellent. The pricipal teachers and parents are extremely friendly. Everyone knows each other and looks out for each others children. It is like an extension of our family. We love our school!
