U.S. News & World Report Article

On Tuesday we published our 2024 Best Elementary Schools, and the news is good for Ps 139 Rego Park: Your school placed among the top 40% of elementary schools in the state of New York, making it a U.S. News Best Elementary School.

Here’s a look at what we published about your school, including its new ranking(s): https://www.usnews.com/education/k12/new-york/school-246753.

Your school’s high rank means it is eligible to display a U.S. News-trademarked Best Elementary School’s award "badge" (logo). Permission to use the badge in any medium must be obtained from BrandConnex, our promotional agent.

BrandConnex has created the online U.S. News Best Elementary Schools Store where highly ranked schools can purchase customized plaques and banners featuring the badge. You can also buy a license that provides permission to display the badge on your school’s website, social media, signage, apparel and a variety of other locations.  For more information about ordering through the online store please contact Al Kaff, akaff@BrandConnex.com.

You can find more information about U.S. News Best Elementary Schools -- including methodology, badge eligibility, promotional options, and how to access the rankings -- on this Best Schools information page.

Please feel free to submit questions or feedback about U.S. News Best Elementary Schools to SchoolRankings@usnews.com.
