P.S. 329

Coney Island, Brooklyn

Just blocks from the Coney Island Boardwalk, P.S. 329 is a cheerful school where students begin each day by reciting a pledge of excellence—a reminder that their journey toward excellence is never ending. Principal Salema Marbury is committed to providing students with experiences to help them recognize their unique talents. On any given day at P.S. 329, you can get the latest school news from a student-led broadcast, hear innovative ideas from an entrepreneurship program, or watch our nation’s future leaders participate in student government. Change for Kids is thrilled to partner with P.S. 329 to offer new experiences so students can further discover their talents and encourage them, as Principal Marbury does every day, to “never surrender their dreams.”
