*School Name Change Notice*

Now that the middle school at Life Sciences Secondary School is phased out, the term 'secondary school' is not reflective of the actual grade levels we serve.  We have had continued conversations with multiple stakeholders; including students, families and staff.  

The names below have been proposed to take the place of the current name:

  • Life Sciences High School 

  • High School for Climate Justice

Communication with a voting ballot has been sent to all students, staff and families.  If you have any comments or questions regarding this name change, please contact Assistant Principal, Steven Serling at sserling@ls3.org.

As of November 18th, 2020 the NYC Mayor has announced that NYCDOE schools will now be fully remote due to the high COVID-19 positivity rate.  This means that the physical school building is now closed, but classes will continue virtually via Zoom for ALL students. 

Please see the LS3 Guidance for Fully Remote Instruction HERE. 

This document describes how classes will run for all students while we are fully remote and the physical school building is closed.

The Jaguar Locker Room

The Jaguar Locker Room supplies supplementary toiletries, non-perishable food and clothing for Life Sciences Secondary School students and their families.  This initiative was originally voted on by the LS3 students as their top choice in our school based participatory budget, recognizing that some of our fellow Jaguar's could currently use a little help in this unprecedented pandemic.  The Jaguar Locker Room motto is, "Give what you can, take what you need." 

If you are in need of supplementary toiletries, non-perishable food and/or clothing please fill out The Jaguar Locker Room Supply Request form HERE.

If you are interested in donating items to The Jaguar Locker Room please see the Donation Flyer HERE.  

If you have any questions about this initiative please contact our Coordinator of Student Activities, Mr. Miller at jmiller@ls3.org.
