“20/20 Vision for Schools exemplifies what can be accomplished when caring individuals team up to leverage their energy, creativity and expertise to positively impact the educational process. By promoting and encouraging community and school partnerships, 20/20 Vision for Schools assists educators with building a solid foundation for success. As trailblazers in their unique design of mobilizing students and community stakeholders through creative arts projects, 20/20 Vision for Schools gives true meaning to the African Proverb, ‘It takes a whole village to raise a child.’” – Principal Salema Marbury, PS 329


The story of renewal and rebirth. After being partially destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, PS 329 and the community of Coney Island came together to rebuild the heart of their neighborhood and celebrate the deep roots of community, creativity, and collaboration.
