The last rating was out dated.They have a new principal, Mr Brown. They are doing pretty good if u ask me.. They DO have an open door policy. They have regular meetings and mr brown keeps us informed of whats going on at the school. My kids love this school. I think Mr Brown os taking this school in a new direction.

TERRIBLE! This school should be evaluated by the Alabama Dept of Education. The Principal is more concerned with uniforms than academics. She doesn't have a open door policy for parents. I pulled my kids out and transferred them to another school. They are now up to par with their grade level at the new school. If I'd left them at Brown, they would be behind. Someone needs to evaluate the school as a whole. I feel sorry for the current students because they will be behind.

Charles A Brown has been closed and torn down. The latest Google map shows a pile of rubble.
