This is a wonderful school. The academic programs and resources available to the students are phenomenal. One of the very few schools in the Bronx with a fully functional music and arts program. I could not have asked for a greater primary school experience.

My son has attended this school since K-011 and is now in 3-301. He has thrived as a young boy and I am proud to say his eduation here has been wonderful. His teacher in second grade , Ms. Cortese, was a wonderful teacher. I gave her an unsure little boy , she returned to me a confident young boy full of self worth. The only suggestion for this school would be that there should be more activities for the parents to join in AFTER WORK hours. I was very dissapointed when I missed his spring concert because it was held during the day. Overall , My husband and I are very content with the education our child is recieving.

I went to P.S. 76 & I have great memories of that school. I made friends I'll never forget. The staff, teachers & enviroment were one of a kind. I'd love to know if my former teachers still teach there. I graduated in 1987

P.S.76 is an excellent school and was given a grade of A from the NYC DOE for the last 3 years. We were awarded the Broad prize for excellence and we partner with different entities to help provide our children with a well rounded education. For example, by working with Education Through Music, we have put on plays, one of which (The Castaways) was invited to perform at the Waldorf Astoria for a big fundraiser there. The children not only performed a part of the play but they also had the opportunity to perform with Joshua Bell, a world renowned violinist. We also started a band program (this is our 2nd year) and it has been a great success. Where most band programs have 6-10 band members, our band at P.S.76 had over 80 band members. And because we are active in our community, we marched in the Bronx parade and so impressed Borough President Ruben Diaz that the band was invited to a local show on Bronxnet for an interview and perfomance. The children and parents at P.S. 76 work very hard to maintain and exceed everyone's expectations. And although we are a top school, we are constantly striving for better and more effective teaching methods. And our parents support is unsurpassed. We have a Parents' Association that works to help supplement events so that children in the lower economic range will be able to participate. We are a well rounded, public school that, in my opinion, shows others how it can be done. P.S. 76 ROCKS!!

I was a student at this school in the early 1960's and it was progressive even back then. I was one of the first students who were taught Italian in the 4th grade by Mrs. Tronconi and had music with Ms. Connie St. John - those two teachers opened my eyes to a whole new world and I am so grateful I had such wonderful teachers in elementary school.

Excellent public school, with caring, consistent and professional administrators and teachers. The school continues to engage parents, work with partners who introduce the Arts to enhance the schools offerings and overall academic performance. All three of my children have attended and it's as close as you can get to a great education outside of a private school setting. Ms. Sedotto, Ms. Humphrey and Ms. Cioffi continually raise the bar as did former principal, Ms. Rogan.

My son attended this school for three years before we moved and had a wonderful education there. The principal is friendly and involved. The acedemic events (like publishing parties) are encouraging. Ps 76 is a great school!

My son just started this school in Sept and I think its a great improvement compared to the last school my son attended. I feel his current teacher is more involved and she cares about the future of her students. Ms. M (a parent)

I have 3 children who has attended PS 76 since k. My oldest just graduated last year. And my other son graduates this year and I have my baby just started this year. The school has never taken the kids on enough educational trips. They dont do any school plays and do not educate more on black history. I have never like the school but its closest to my home. And they need to wear cap n gowns for once at graduation. I dont like that all grades enter the school the same way because I find me or my daughter who is 5 yrs old always get pushed out the way by kids just running by. Where is the protection for the younger children?

My daughter attended this school she had a bueatiful time attending this school and to b honest with u I would prefer this school aposed to the private school in the same area. Public is better especially to thoes tryin and really can't afford private. To tell u the truth it's all what u put into it. The teachers the are wonderful I must admitt. Go Mrs. Casserie and Keagn just to name a few. Note to parents: It' take more than the teacher to teach your child and if both sides work the sky is the limit for all our kids. Good lick this year in school 07'

First impressions are everlasting. My first impression of the school was a very good one. The principal was very understanding, helpful and straight to the point. The afterschool program works great, especially for working mothers and fathers. My son always went to private which was very expensive, and there have always been no less than 30 kids per class. At P.S. 76 there were only 23 kids in the first grade class. The school is great!

My daughter is currently in second grade and so far I am pleased with the way the school is being administered by Ms. Rogan and staff. The teachers that my daughter have had in the past are great and the one she has now is an excellent teacher too. Keep up the good work.

My son is in the fifth grade and I am very pleased with this school. They prepare the kids to be leaders and expose them to art, poetry and culture. In addition, last year 2003 this school had good grades for the fourth grade math and english language arts tests. The teachers are dedicated and professional. Kudos to Mrs. Rogan and her staff. Thank you for bringing my son so far along. What a School!
