    "I love our school because the teachers and administration are terrific at reinforcing the students natural inclination to learn in everything they do! They do not just teach to pass standardized tests - although this seems to be a natural by product."

    "My twin girls have gone to 321 since kindergarten, and are currently in 3rd grade. They have had so much fun learning there. Their teachers have been great! Nice community of parents, too."

    "We have had a very mixed experience at this school. Both with great teachers and outright difficult ones. Due to the hands off approach of allowing the teachers to run their class, little is done if you get a bad-apple for the year. This is unfortunate. There are a lot of children....the numbers alone make it difficult to get attention. Overcrowding is an issue. Kindness, respect and manners are often ignored to maintain order of the sheer numbers of children. Kids can feel this and become lost in the shuffle. Parental involvement is high.... this has a definite positive advantage for the school but then has a huge down-side when it crosses lines into socialization. Politically correct play-dates and over-parenting are by-products of some with to much time on their hands. Overall the school does very well with reading and writing. The teachers that are great do an exceptional job and should be commended."

    "I loved 321. I went there from K-5 and it was great. The teachers are all really great, and the curriculum is good in 321 I was able to be creative and learn a lot at the same time. I enjoyed going to school everyday and am still friends with some of the people I met there. Being able to go out to lunch was also great in 4th and 5th grade as opposed to being stuck in an overcrowded cafeteria for a period."

    "I was pleasantly surprised that the hype about P.S. 321 seems to be true. My son just finished kindergarten and it's been phenomenal. He had attended a highly regarded private school for nursery and pre-k and I found the education at 321 to be as good or better. The atmosphere is community-oriented and creative. What makes this school great is not only the principal's leadership, wonderful, dedicated teachers who continually educate themselves and the parent body, but the inter-dependent and respectful relationship between all three. Principal Liz Phillips welcomes input and involvement. There are issues with crowding, but at least at the kindergarten level, they are somewhat isolated, having lunch in their classroom rather than the cafeteria, and having their own playground. They seem to manage the crowd very well. I can't say enough good things about it. So far, we love it!"
