I am a teacher at MS/HS 223 and love it. I teach 6th and 7th grade and I'm very impressed with the professionalism of our staff and leaders. We were recently honored as a Chancellor's Distinguished Dual Language School, and our school has partnered with numerous organizations to bring educational and enrichment opportunities to our students. Some of our partners include Harvard Book Clubs, Blue Engine, iMentor, Software Engineering Pilot (SEP), Robin Hood Foundation, Matisse Foundation, Urban Tech, Edelman Foundation, Arete Education Inc, and ESA's Digital Living Project. Our students engage in rigorous discussions in Socratic Seminars, tackle real-world exemplars in math, design and implement high-level project-based assessments (PBATS) across content areas, and write in multiple coding languages in middle and high school (HTML, JavaScript, CSS, Python, Ruby on Rails, etc). As a parent, I plan to send my own children to MS/HS 223, because I have faith that it is a high quality school with amazing opportunities to offer our students.

This school is NOT what it appears to be! A lot of the teachers at 223 quit annually because the admin "bullies" them.

The Laboratory School of Finance and Technology is an exciting and innovative student-centered learning community that provides a rigorous academic program in a supportive environment. Our friendly and colorful classrooms are laboratories of intensive and challenging instruction. Located on the corner of 145th St. and 3rd Ave., MS 223 opened in September 2003 and has grown into one of the most popular and well-known middle schools in the entire Bronx. At the Laboratory School of Finance and Technology, we expect our children to be prepared for the future, so we teach them the skills to become successful adults. Our main themes are finance (The management of large amounts of money) and technology (The use of scientific knowledge for practical purposes). In our small, technology-rich classrooms students explore and combine their many interests, talents, and ideas in a risk-free atmosphere that engages every child. We believe that learning becomes more meaningful when it has a purpose.

I Graduated MS.223 This Year And I Enjoyed My 3 Years In This School. Even Though I Was a Handful,None Of My Teachers Let Me Down And None Of The Teachers Gave Up On Me! The School Is In A Bad Neighborhood But It Is A Great School Academically. The Work Given Is Challenging To Have Your Mind Working.

MS 223 won the 2010 Intel Schools of Distinction in Mathematics. Only a great leader and teachers can get that done! Mr Gonzalez is a savior to our students!
