This is my daughter's first year of school and she is thriving. We are so fortunate for P.S.307.The office staff is awesome. MRS.FUENTES is a great child advocate. To know her is to admire what stands for EMPOWERMENT. Bottom line. She has a passion for education and making sure her students succeed is her number one priority.

I have two children that attended PS307 one is in fifth grade and the other is in third grade. It is my opinion that teacher and staff, truly care about education. The school provides workshops that assist parents with their child education. I am able to make appointments with my children teachers if I have any concerns and they share strategies with me how to reinforce what my children are learning. I proud to say that my child in the fifth grade recieved 3's and 4;s in her report card last year and all state test. I truly believe this occured because school provide so many afterschool programs and saturday program specifically reviewing state test. I thank the teacher, staff, Ms. Valez and Ms. Fuentes for making 307 and home away from home. 307 deserves 5 MILLION STARS !!!!

P.S. 307 is a great school. My son has been attending since Pre-K and is now in 3rd grade. His vocabulary, writing, math & science skills are pretty impressive. I love how they push the students and expect better than average work. The school is small, but that is great because it has a sense of community & family. All staff and teachers know the children individually, they are not just faces in the crowd. I love that uniforms are required. It shows unity, pride and the children can focus. There's no need to worry about who's wearing the latest trends. P.S. 307 also has after school programs, and Saturday workshops. It is also located right next door to a newly renovated library which also holds workshops, and tutoring. Overall I would say it is definately a jewel in the Bronx. This borough needs more schools like this. -Proud P.S. 307 Parent

I have mixed feelings about this school. The Principal means well but her tactics are very unconventional. She is rude, loud, and very inappropriate at times with the language she uses. The children are frieghtened of her and so are the staff. Often parents are spoken to like they are children themselves. I am all for education along with discipline but not by way of threats and constant belittling. Again, the Principal means well and cares for the children but needs to find a happy medium.

This school is great! I love the way the teacher are with the students. They are very helpful and great at helping the parents. My daughter graduated from this school and she still comes to visit her old teachers and the principal. My son now graduates this year and he doesn t want to leave he loves it here. When it comes to the education of the children this school has it all, from afterschool and Saturday academy. They do all can do to help the students, and the children are wonderful. This school is just great!

I have 2 girl's in PS 307. I must say my eldest child was in Special Education, the services she received in Spec Ed at PS 307 helped her to move into General Ed. This school strives for excellence...Nothing less. The countless hours that the Teachers and Administration give should be commended. Attendance is rewarded constantly. Uniforms are mandatory which I feel gives our children a sense of unity. If New York city schools would take a lesson from this school our school system would be better for all our children. I tip my hat to this school.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.

The NYC Department of Education asked parents, teachers and students about their school's learning environment. Results provide insight into school climate, such as whether the school is academically rigorous, safe, communicative and collaborative. Learn more

The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn. An overall category score is calculated for each respondent group (parents, teachers, or students) by averaging the scores of the questions within that survey category.

Category scores for each of the respondent groups are then combined to form overall category scores. Alongside the results for each school are the aggregated results across all NYC public schools, which are provided as a basis for comparisons.
