P.S. 247, located in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, is a school of almost 700 students in grades Pre-Kindergarten to Fifth Grade. The school is ethnically diverse, with students speaking almost 30 different languages. The staff consists of approximately 75 teachers, administrators, para-professionals, school aids and other support personnel.
P.S. 247's motto, "A Model of Excellence," reflects not only the school's past performance, but also its commitment to providing the finest quality education for all children at the school.
This enormous task cannot be accomplished alone. It will take a team, including all staff members of P.S. 247, parents, and community members to help students build skills, self-esteem, and gain appreciation for all people.
