My daughter will be in 3rd grade this fall and has been attending Earle Brown since Preschool. We have thrilled with our experience at Earle Brown. The teachers are great, the building is great and my daughter loves being there. I have done at lot of volunteering at the school and I would recommend that to other parents as well, it is a great way to feel connected to the great things going on there.

I can't be more than happy with the experience my son has had in Kindergarten. I feel that his teachers and staff are really dedicated to their jobs and the students.

We switched my son from another magnet school during 1st grade because he was not being challenged and his grades and behavior were starting to decline. ALL OF THAT CHANGED WHEN WE STARTED AT EARLE BROWN. From the very first day, he was our happy, engaged little boy again! His teacher is fantastic, the kids were excited to have him and made him feel welcome, and he LOVES going to school. When he needs more of a challenge, I tell his teacher and she immediately responds. He is now doing 2nd and 3rd grade work while still in 1st grade, and is excited to learn and more and more strongly develop the personal attributes the IB Program encourages. We love that he some of his weekly Specials are Spanish and Research, plus and some pretty amazing field trips. We have NO REGRETS about switching schools. WE LOVE EARLE BROWN!

We opened enrolled both of our children at Earle Brown and have been more than pleased with the learing experience they have had to this point. We have been blessed with AMAZING teachers. The only issues I have had have been regarding discipline or handling of an issue by the Dean. As someone else that submitted a review said, the neighborhood is of no concern - I would highly recommend this school!

Our daughter attended Earle Brown for Kindergarten this year through the NW Suburban magnet enrollment program and we couldn't have been more pleased with her first year of school. The teachers and staff are involved and know each and every student. The IB program provides a multi-dimensional learning experience that has been fantastic. Our child has been exposed to sign language, Spanish, music, different cultural celebrations, alongside the regular math, science, reading one would expect. She's also learned to think outside of the box and to look at the impacts around her of what she does. Highly recommend this school and we look forward to next year.

During my daughter's first day of Kindergarten, I was so nervous seeing the shuffle of students and staff members. I feared she'd get lost amongst the people and wouldn't know where she is. I feared she wouldn't make it home on the bus and that she won't remember where she's supposed to arrive. All my fears were laid to rest with the staff including her teacher! They are so calming, understanding, and kind. My fears for my daughter's first day of school vanished. There's nobody else I'd trust her to. The staff is very involved in caring for the children's well being. Even the PRINCIPLE was out directing and guiding the chaos of the first day of school. Not even the first day, he's out there everyday. He doesn't hide out in his office tracking who's in and who's not. I am a proud parent of EARLE BROWN elementary students!

We open enrolled our son at Earle Brown from a much more affluent and less diverse area because we wanted him to experience the richness of being educated with students from cultures other than our own. The teachers here are great - very creative and enthusiastic. Our son has special needs but also is a high ability learner so he's quite the challenge but they LOVE him there and have had great ideas for how to enrich his curriculum while making adaptations for his disabilities. I didn't even have to ask!! They did it because they saw the need. When you walk down the hallways of a school and everyone is smiling (those who work there as well as those who attend there), you know something is right in the school. Don't let the test scores or the neighborhood fool you. This is an awesome school.

I love this school. I have three grandkids going to Earl Brown and am very pleased with this school from the person standing at the door to the lunch people to the office staff to the principal all the way to the teachers I have been privileged to work with. I love this place!! I am grateful for the standards they set for student performance and personal development.

Great academics and staff. More of the parents need to be involved and more extracurricular activities should be offered. Many of the children are English language learners which makes the test scores appear lower but don't let that fool you. It's a great school. People are proud of it! I would like the children to be disciplined even more though. I think uniforms would be a good idea. I also think that there should be a stronger emphasis on manners proper etiquette.

What a warm, caring staff! We open enrolled our child here for her entire elementary education and I got involved by volunteering daily for 4 years in the classrooms. You will not find a more dedicated staff or a principal who works harder than this one anywhere else. If you ever get the chance to spend anytime in this school, you will see nothing but smiles and encouraging words. Starting at the front door in the morning when they are met with smile by teachers, to the end of the day when they say good-bye at the door, this school is all about making sure each student learns all the skills they need to become successfull in life. I can tell you from experience as a past PTA president, that parents who become involved at this school get a much better understanding of how wonderful and dedicated this staff is!

I'm removing my child from this school dist at the end of this school year. I feel the adminstration is not in touch with the students needs. I cant help but wonder with the test scores continuing to drop, what is being done to adress this. They are lower than they were 2 years ago.

I am registering my child who is starting kindergarden in the fall and I attended the kindergarden round-up the April 13th. I am really in favor of this school because of the committment I seen from the principal who was so down to earth and showed real committment to the school and children. The teachers showed a real interest in the families that came to register the children.

Brooklyn Center needs help in the worst way. The goal of Earle Brown's staff is no longer the best education/welfare of the children who attend, but rather how much they can distance themselves from education and still maintain their own power trips. With the new school coming, it would do BC well to change the entire administrative staff as well. Parents and children no longer matter at EB. It is an extremely sad situation and needs looking into.
