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!

My family relocated from the Bronx to Brooklyn in March '04. I did my research on schools and thought this would be a good fit but I was still nervous and I didn't know what to expect from the transition especially since my children were joining a new school so late in the semester. But, I have to say that PS312 embraced my children the minute we registered them and made them feel very comfortable and immediately felt like they fit right in the 312 family. It was painless. The children just loved their new school and couldn't wait to start again that September. they were both eventually excepted into the Eagle program. They have advanced and achieved so much since they have been there. My son has graduated now, but misses 312 a lot. He holds a lot of good memories from there. My daughter will sadly graduate in 6/09.

My 2 children came from another public school, one entering Kindergarten and the other going into 3rd grade. My children learned so much more so fast, the teachers really take their time to get to know these students and they always make sure the children come first. The entire staff at this beautiful school really allow the parents at ease to know the kids are being well cared for, getting the education they most certainly deserve, and receiving their education in a very comfortable and friendly environment.//

My daughter is about to graduate from this School. She had 7 years of wonderful education and fun. Teachers are great some are ok but for the most part they are wonderful and available when you need them. The Principal is ok hope she was more determine on getting things done for the School. I love the Parent coordinator, Carol Pino is P.S. 312, she is there for all the kids and if the parents need anything she will go out of her way to help. The PA is great and helpful, I am sure my daughter is going to miss it but she is well prepare for her next step. The gifted program is excellent and the kids are so well prepared for the standardized tests. Thanks PS 312.

My son is about to graduate from 312 and I think it was overall a wonderful experience for him.The school accommodates children at every level of ability and provides top notch services for children who need them. The best quality though is the warmth that permeates the school.Some teachers have been better than others but we have not had a bad year in terms of teaching.My younger son is currently in a Montessori Pre-k program(too young for public school)and for a lot more money isn't really getting better teaching or more attention. Not only will my son miss it,so will I.Overall, a very satisfying seven years.

Just when I think my children's current year teachers are the best qualified we enter another year and the new teachers are as extraordinary as the previous year's. Attending P.S. 312 is like getting a Private School education. The school offers quality and diverse programs. The principal and staff create a comfortable family atmosphere that makes it fun and easy for the children to learn. The children are well behaved, the principal and staff address any behavioral problems as soon as they arise, and the children seem to respond very well to this (from the few incidents I have witnessed).

All my children have gone to P.S.312 and it certainly has paid off. My 2 elder children excelled and went on to excellent schools and my youngest child is currently attending this school and doing remarkably well. Her teacher is so motivating and caring and provides the students with the guidance and structure they need to excel. I rate this school at the top of the list!

Thank God my child is in the 3rd grade because he finally has gym. It is ridiculous that K-2 doesn't have gym and the kindergarten and the first grade never go outside for lunchtime recess. The administration should do some research on good test scores and exercise.

This school is excellent. The caring and commitment of the staff and teachers are incredible. My child came from a private school when she entered P.S.312 and I can honestly say that the level of education is rated to me to have exceeded the curriculum of the private school sector. She actually was behind in her level of education for this school. (That is my opinion) The private school told me she was too advanced for her grade in her school. It took her a few months for her to catch up but she is doing well now and I owe it all to this school. The parent involvement is wonderful also. I think this school should be rated higher but in time with more ratings from parents it will get the correct rating which should be 100% excellent.

This is a top-notch school where the teachers are very dedicated to the children's learning. In addition to the academics, the students also study computers, art (from a real artist!), an incredible gym program and a music program that has 2 bands and a chorus. This school is one of the tops in NYC and creates a wonderful learning environment. I transfered my child from another school to this one, and my child and I couldn't be happier.
