Kathryn Procope - Head of School Howard University Middle School of Mathematics & Science - Washington, DC

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
