I am a proud graduate of PS 76. I love this school. I am in six grade and PS 76 has taught me things to help me succeed as I move on. I have been in that school since kindergarten. This school has a lot of brightness I hope anyone else who goes there see's what I see in that school.

My daughter has been attending this school since 1st grade after transerring from another school, I felt, was not giving her quality education. At PS 76 she is thriving and her favorite subject is reading. My daughter enjoys school and here she likes her teachers. She now wants to be one when she grows up. Thank you Bennington School. Keep up the good work.
