Message from the Principal

Dear Families,

 

I have had the privilege of teaching at Brooklyn Ascend Middle School, leading as a Dean of Instruction and I am honored to now serve as the Principal. I am excited to partner with you in this journey because our scholars will only reach their highest potential if we are consistently working together. We have built an incredible team of leaders and teachers that I believe in very deeply. We are proving that schools can be loving, healing and transformative spaces while achieving high academic results. Educators at our school are not only committed to getting your children to college, but ensuring that they have the skills to get through college. As a team, we are relentlessly analyzing data, addressing misconceptions and giving our scholars feedback to ensure they will master their learning goals by the end of the year. At our school scholars are also empowered to discover their passion, live their truth and become agents of social change in  our world. Please feel free to set up an appointment to come see this in action or reach out if you have any questions.

 

With love,

Ms. Lane
