PS307 Open House 2013

Daniel Hale Williams PS 307

Last week, DNAinfo published an article about the improvements in the local schools, PS8 and PS307. Per the article, PS307 has seen one of the biggest improvements in reading and math scores in Brooklyn last year:

At P.S. 307, Principal Roberta Davenport has transformed her school over the past eight years. According to Insideschools, since Davenport took over the school in 2004, P.S. 307 has increasingly become a place that makes students and teachers proud.

Davenport upgraded the art room, reached out to the DUMBO arts community to create opportunities for her students and decorated formerly dim school hallways with students’ work. She also cracked down on bad behavior with more suspensions.

“She changed the tone of the school,” Assistant Principal Bill Diederich told Insideschools.

More notably, Davenport improved her students’ math and reading scores. According to the Daily News, P.S. 307 saw one of the biggest improvements in reading and math scores in Brooklyn last year.

The school has come a long way, but the principal knows that their work is far from done. They have sent the below open house and forum schedule to provide the community with updates to their school program:
