W T Brown is a great school! My sons attend classes there through the school of choice program. The parent who commented about the yearbook is mistaken. Yearbooks were distributed; I was looking at my copy this past weekend. The PTA did have a change of officers but only for a short time and it is back up and running. The fee per family is $5, not $15. These fees are not mandated by the schools so they can't set their own fees. In the two years that my boys have been attending the school I have not had any issues with money. I get what I pay for. I suggest you contact the principal about the yearbook issue. Again, this is a great school! They have a great academic program.

My experience with this school did not meet expectations. The disorganization and lack of communication was less than desirable. The PTA disbanded in which Parents who joined (paid the $15 fee) were not notified, nor was their money refunded. Secondly, for those of us who purchased Yearbooks (and paid $20 cash...that is all the school accepts -- without receipts provided to the Parents), those were not distributed at the end of the year (June 2006). Still to this day, no one can explain the Yearbook situation, nor have we received the Yearbook. Complete and utter confusion!! My concern is the leadership qualified to manage the staff? I would not recommend this school. In my personal opinion, it should not be a 'Choice School.'
