  • Henrietta Lacks Day

    Ms. Langis' College Biology students observed Henrietta Lacks Day on February 1, 2024. This day honors Henrietta Lacks' contribution to the field of medicine through the use of her cells. Lacks and her family were initially unaware that her cells were being used for research. Students observe this day to acknowledge the unethical treatment Lacks experienced. To learn more about Lacks, see this school newspaper article written by McCown Times' very own Catherine Feery and Eli Karov.

McCown has a graduation rate of 97.8% and was recently spotlighted by NYCDOE Chancellor David Banks as a "great high school option" and the only school to be recognized in Staten Island. 

McCown is a college preparatory school partnering with NYC Outward Bound Schools and EL Education to offer challenging student-centered learning focused around case studies and expeditions that incorporate fieldwork and conclude with projects presented to authentic audiences along with service learning opportunities.
