Principal's Message

Dear Lead-X Family, 

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year. I am excited to see what great things are in store for this year. 

At Lead-X Middle School, our staff is not just a team, but a family. We are deeply committed to our scholars, and we understand the immense trust you place in us by sending your children to our school every day. We strive to create an environment where students and families feel not just safe, but truly supported.   

At Lead-X, we are dedicated to nurturing leadership, social/emotional, and academic skills in our students, fostering a love for learning that lasts a lifetime. We hold high expectations for our students and ourselves, aiming to shape them into productive members of society. As educators, we are staunch advocates for equity and access, leveraging all available resources from the NYC Department of Education to ensure our students have an equal opportunity for academic success.  

I hope that we meet or exceed your expectations this school year. We are working hard to give your children a safe, warm, empowering, and rigorous academic environment. Thanks for stopping by our website, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out. 


Tammy Katan-Brown

facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own."
