    I was a worried parent when my son first entered this school only because I was just comfortable with the place he was previously. After just a few short weeks I noticed that he was very happy and learning tremendous. MS Ducey is a very caring principal and will even communicate with parents about any concerns just like the rest of the staff. They treat the kids as if they were family. Special thanks to Ms Ducey Ms Foster Ms Nagel Ms Thiel Ms Doran and secutity staff and of course thr the rest of the school staff. GREAT SCHOOL GREAT ENVIORNMENT

    I love this school! When my son came out of daycare I was worried about him go to a bigger school. When he started his first year in Kindergarten back in September 2011 it was a transition but his teacher Mrs. Sherlock and I work together as a team and my son took off. He even made student of the month. Mrs. Sherlock will work with you completely. That was great for me. They First grade he had Mrs. Regan who was amazing. She is a ball full of energy and she has a true passion for the kids. Now his last year at P.S. 326 he has Mrs. Sherck. Since the first day of school we have been work as a team. I can ask her any question and she always finding ways to help my son advance. The staff at this school from Ms. Foster Mrs. Conurvoisier everyone in the office school safety and everyone is just amazing . They are always helpful and friendly. You and your child are not just another number at P.S 326 you are apart of a family. A team of people that truly want to see your child succeed. The principle Mrs.Ducey AMAZING! I have never seen a principle that has such a true passion for her kids. It is going to hurt so bad when he leaves in next year. P.S 326 is a school of excellence

    This is our family's first experience with the NYC public school system. We are very pleased with P.S. 326. The principal seems to know all the children by name. It is a small setting where the children are nurtured while being educated. Ourson's teacher is committed to ensuring every student's success. Unfortunately this school only goes up to the 2nd grade. This wonderful staff will be deeply missed.

    I love P.S. 326. I was really worried about my daughter transitioning from a private preschool to public school. My experience has been great at P.S. 326. I love the idea of an environment with only little people. It makes the transition much easier than other schools with larger student bodies.

    I love P.S. 326!! After a bad kindergarten experience with another local public school I requested a meeting with the principal who took time out of her busy schedule to meet with me and interview my daughter. I could not have been anymore thankful than I am today especially because both my daughters attend this school as well as my niece. The teachers are so involved and dedicated to making each student feel special with simple actions like paying attention and knowing the names of every child. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking to place their child in a rare public school that feels private and a school that simply understands. All of the staff are caring and polite. Throughout the years my daughter's studies have excelled greatly and now although leaving her sister and cousin behind she will be one of the first to graduate as a 2nd grader. She will miss her teachers and the school immensely for making it such a memorable experience. I can't say anything more about this school but that its truly a rare gem. Thank you for creating a comfortable environment for my children and for making sure they are on track for the next steps in their life.

    I love P.S. 326. In fact I recommend the school to so many parents I see with toddlers. I wish - in fact I know - that when my "newborn to be" becomes of age P.S. 326 will be her first stop in the world of education.

    Praises to the principal teachers and other staff members of P.S. 3236. The children are taught in a very safe environment where they are comfortable learning and enjoy attending every day.

    P.S. 326 is truly a unique school-it's like a hidden gem. I have known about the school for the past few years and am continuously impressed and happy with my children's education and wellbeing. There is no NYC principal like Ms. Colleen Ducey-she cares about each child and treats them as her own. The teachers are so talented and warm and the environment its like a little private school of superior learning and social growth. I love the projects the holiday events and the early childhood touch. They understand the needs of young children and do an excellent job educating our young children.

    I highly recommend P.S. 326! Since the first time I entered the building I was overcome with a sense of warmth and kindness. The staff as well as the principal are exceptionally helpful. There is never a day when I come to pick up my child that M. Ducey doesn't greet him by name and let me know of upcoming school events. I looked at many schools prior to selecting PS 326 and I highly recommend this school.

    I love my child's school P.S. 326! It's a wonderful place for young children to learn and grow. Everything is for the children- even the lunchroom and play activities give these young kids a chance to share and grow. I love the way they greet the parents everyday. I feel like part of the family. Ms. Ducey is the principal and she is part of everything at the school-I have even seen her taking care of the kids during dismissal and helping them when they don't feel well. The teachers and staff of the school are all helpful and hands-on. This is what I like and what I wanted for my child. I highly recommend this school.

    This is truly not a great school I had to come up to the school because my child could not bring any supplies such as color pencils while another student can who was another race as my child As I was speaking to the principal of the school she was very disrespectful. In the office their was desk in between us talking and in a split second she came around the desk to talk directly in my face. I did not had to be treated this way so I went upstairs and taken my child out of the school. The principal stated that was the rules of the classroom and their is nothing that could of been done about this. Bad school they only choose sides of color from my point view.

    I love P.S. 326 because... nothing is impossible here! It is one of the Early Childhood Learning Centers which provides a warm nurturing foundation for many children who can especially benefit from it. Against the odds it has remained open though facing difficulties of budget cuts little resources and building obstacles. I would love for the day to come for our school to finally be able to further our children's experience with a better facility. It's definately time we recognize the value on the Early Childhood years as the beginning of of more to come. I believe winning this money would also encourage our parents/ families to become more active in their child's school and allow them to regain some of the faith many have lost in public schools. Please see us for who we are- a small school where miracles could happen!

    My 2 children have attend this school. My son is currently in the 1st Grade and my daughter went on to PS 119. I am truly in awe of the teachers dedication to educational excellence and the high standards of personalized treatment that children receive. I wish that this school went to further grades. I commend the principal Ms Ducey for doing a wonderful job as well as Mrs Bagwell Mrs Ciancialo and Mrs Cunningham for helping to set a womderful foundation for learning for my children. A very warm safe and friendly learning enviornment.

    My nephew attends the school and I am amazed at how caring and involved the teacher is in his life. He is in Pre-K (only half-day) but he loves it and if he is happy so am I. Sometimes it makes me wish that the school went further with the grades.

    I currently have 2 kids attending PS 326. One is in Pre-K and the other is in the first grade. I believe it a safe and wonderful school. The staff is great especially the principal. My only complaint is that the Pre-K program is not an all day progam.
