PS 295?2

We went to the Touch-a-Truck event at ps295 on Saturday, and although it was PACKED and we never got to even one truck (except the food truck), I was really impressed with what I saw of the school!

The zone is wonky, but I also know that the neighborhood is filled with artists and entrepreneurs doing cool stuff – and it’s fairly affordable. Worth checking out for sure if you’re looking to stay in Brooklyn.

On Saturday, besides seeing many others we know, I ran into an old friend who is an artist and jewelry designer who has her two boys there and loves it; we have a friend who teaches 3rd grade there and loves it – wants to send her twins there for pre-k; and we met a woman who teaches theater there (yes, they have a theater program) and couldn’t say enough great things about it. It’s small, very diverse and seemed to me there is a very active parent body. Check out the profile on insideschools.org – the reviews are amazing. Also houses a middle school in the building which is apparently very good.

Worth checking out for sure if you’re looking to stay in Brooklyn. Anyone out there send there kids there already? What do you think?
