From the moment you walk into Brown Elementary, you are greeted with a smile! The camaraderie between the staff, parents and students is awesome! The positive environment lays a good foundation for great academics, which you will find at Brown Elementary!
Brown Elementary is an amazing school. The staff is dedicated and the morale seems higher than it's ever been. (I've had a student here since 2005) I believe that translates to an excellent learning environment. Students at all levels and abilities are getting the attention they need to improve and grow. Parent involvement is high this year and encouraged by the staff. While budget cuts are affecting the district in many ways, the administration has prioritized the student-teacher ratio and the class sizes remain small (about 20 students in a class). The principal is always open to parents, staff and students alike. Her practical yet outgoing personality and management style are setting a good tone throughout the building.
I personally could not be happier with my school. I love the teachers, the principal and th support staff. I feel they work together and seem to have the kids best interest at heart. I love that we have the life skills program at brown elementary and what it gets to teach my daughter about helping those kids with special needs. I can not imagine my daughter getting a better education anywhere else.
Brown Elementary is outstanding in not only in the academics that it teaches to it's students but also in how personable everyone in the building is to one another! This is everyone, custodial staff, cafeteria ladies, teachers, office staff, principal...everyone! I am happy to be a part of a wonderful school where my children learn and grow academically on a daily basis! We LOVE Brown Elementary!
The most amazing and caring place for children. Fabulous teachers and great leadership! I cannot say enough good things about this school. You WANT your child here.
My son began Brown in the 2nd grade. We have been nothing but pleased. He is now in 8th grade and in high ability classes at West Middle. My daughter began kindergarten at Brown this year. She is already reading and is off the charts on the standards tests. I atrribute this to the teachers and wonderful support. I email with her teacher frequently to keep in touch. Both of my kids absolutely love Brown, as do my husband and I. We have a new principal this year and she is all about the kids. The PSG is wonderful and allows parents to be very active in the children's learning.
Brown Elementary was "home" for my daughter and myself for many years! My daughter who is now in 6th grade and at middle school attended brown since K (6 yrs) and I actively participated in PSG and in the classroom as a volunteer. Currently I work pt at the school and can tell you that I've never seen a principal like the current principal who is as dedicated to the students and who listens to parents and takes their feedback to heart and makes changes after reviewing that feedback! I know my daughter was always safe at brown and is a very responsible child who did (and still is) amazing academically and socially ! I highly recommend Brown!
I have been at this elementary for over 6 years and while things are not perfect, I believe that the teachers are excellent and want for my children to succeed. The administration has changed two times since I have been there, and the current administration (new this year) is WONDERFUL! There are many ways parents can be involved in their child's education. All the teachers that I have had personal contact with were engaging and challenged my children to exceed.
School has very rude staff, 0 communication skills. Aids yell at students for "talking during lunch", I am very disappointed with the lack of respect shown to students and parents. I feel previous post must have been dreamed up by staff, none of the parents I have talked with are happy with this school.
The teachers are all wonderful. School is clean and safe. Staff is very friendly and this is a school that keeps parents well informed of what is going on with the school and students.
This is a top notch school. We have not had a bad teacher. The specials (art, music, PE, library, Spanish) are enriching and interesting. There is a high level of academic performance and at the same time, a feeling of small town friendliness and warmth. My kids have all felt acceptance and honest friendship with their teachers.
