Williamsburg Northside School has been my daughter's school for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. I was there for the previous administration for one year and now with the new administration for two years. I note this because WNS is becoming a completely different school, from the inside/out. The new admin is incredibly kind, intelligent and interested in education and community. I sent my daughter there because I wanted her mind and everyday experience to be challenged. She has made wonderful friends and her teachers are, for the most part, solid educator's. The importance placed on the arts and community is the real bonus of WNS, from my point of view. For a school that was merely "progressive" a few years ago, it has really leaped forward into a great academic school as well. The environment is warm and friendly, and the students are happy.

My son is about to enter his second year at Williamsburg Northside PreSchool . In just a year his growth and development have gone beyond my highest expectations. I really love the faculty and staff. I feel a real sense of community. The building is very beautiful. There is a rooftop playground! All in all an amazing school.

WNS are proud of the Reggio Emilia approach and I am pleased with their implementation at the school. My son really loves his time at the school and has shown great improvement over the last one year. I am thankful to all his teachers at Williamsburg Northside.

The Williamsburg trifecta of schools is one of the most reputed schools here in Brooklyn, which is one of the reasons I enrolled my kids here. My daughter goes to the daycare and has been doing really well and I am personally surprised with the improvement I have seen in my son here in the Williamsburg elementary school. I am really thankful.

I enrolled my kid in the Williamsburg Northside schools due to the Reggio Emilia model of learning. The teaching model allows for well rounded growth along with academics and general social skills - both of which are essential for proper childhood growth.
