Principal's Message

Dear Lead-X Family, 


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


LEAD-X Middle School staff truly loves working with our scholars. We take seriously the trust you place in us by sending your children to our school every day, and we work hard to make students and families feel safe and supported.   


Here at LEAD-X we aim to develop leadership skills, social/emotional skills, and academic skills to build life-long learners. We have high expectations for our students as well as ourselves as we forge towards creating productive citizens of society. As educators we believe strongly in equity and access, so we tap into all of the available resources in the NYC Department of Education that will grant our students a fair chance at 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."
