Greetings From the Head of School

We believe in the success of all our students. (MS)2 is a place where asking the right questions is more important than providing the right answers. Every stakeholder at (MS)2 must agree that we will do whatever it takes to ensure that every young person that enters our school is given every opportunity to achieve their personal goals. We realize that the work we do is not easy.

-Kathryn Procope, Head of School

Phase Two Guidance Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19): Guidance for Schools (Preschool-K-12 and Adult Education)
During Phase Two, Schools may reopen. This guidance will be in effect until we are able to better assess the impact of opening schools on the spread of COVID-19, so progression may happen independently of the District’s reopening phases. When schools reopen, the following measures should be implemented in order to help reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission among students and staff.

We are committed to providing an innovative 21st century educational experience to students of color. As the only public charter middle school located on the campus of a historically Black university, we hope to be the model for other schools seeking to implement an individualized learning model to support their students.

We need your help to continue to grow and service even more students and families!

Howard University Middle School of Mathematics and Science believes that Black Lives Matter because it embodies the vision and ideals of our school community. We grieve the unjust loss of life at the hands of those we trust to protect and serve us and we stand in support of their families demanding justice and change from elected officials who represent us.

Hey Parents! On Monday, August 17, uniforms will be available for pick-up. Please be advised that you will be provided with a scheduled time for pick-up. You can pre-order uniforms by clicking below. Please see our uniform requirements. Students are required to arrive to school in full uniform on each day of learning.

Hey Parents! Are you in need of enrollment assistance? We’re here to help you. Give us a call at 202.806.7725 to make an appointment.

Summer Resources

While we will not be able to spend this Summer together through our various Summer programs, there are many virtual resources available to our Scholars. Please check out our resources below. We will continue to update you our resources throughout the Summer!

Summer Chess Lessons
The U.S. Chess Center is pleased to offer online chess lessons this summer for students in DC Public Charter Schools. As Mr. Teachey wrote a few days ago, we hope to organize a middle school chess league during the upcoming school year and these lessons are designed to generate interest in chess by giving students the confidence that they will be able to play with students from other schools. Interested students should have their parents register them on their website. We would expect them to register for Group 3, 4, or 6, depending on their level of experience. They are eligible to join without paying. Parents should enter DCS in the Discount box when they register, then ignore the payment options when they press Submit to register their students.
