School Leadership Team

Leon M. Goldstein High School for the Sciences School Leadership Team (SLT)
The School Leadership Team consists of both parent, student, and staff members and plays a very important role in our school with regard to helping set the standards of the academic and social needs of our students and ensuring that those standards are met. We encourage parents to become familiar with the goals of the team and understand how the team works to meet the goals that have been set. Team members are present at the monthly Parents' Association meetings and the minutes are available for review on the the school website .
