This school is Great with acidemics but they dont do anything for bullying i am now in the 8th grade and I have been bullied more then you know and the do nothing about it I tell them and they wont listen if you kid is prone to getting bullied dont go here. this principal does nothing when it comes to bullying.


Posted May 16, 2012

This school is the worst with dealing with bully issues. My child has had 2 different incedents and both times I have had to do all the follow up and see what is going on. The teacher had my child write a note to the principal with all the details. I had to call 3 days later because no one ever contacted me regarding the issue. When you send your child to school you trust they are in good hands but not at Brown Middle School. The principal at that school is just there to get paid he doesnt care about the students and retirment is just around the corner. The assistant principal does more there than he does and that is the truth. This is coming from a parent that would pick public school over home school any day but the home school is looking so much better.

after going to this school a year and a half and being enrolled under the same adress from start to finish a child is being kicked out of school for a mistake that was the schools fault not the child or parent apparently when asked to be put on the bus instead of being a car rider they realized that she was not in district but has one week to go to the other school and the family was told the whole time that the address was in district even during the enrollement the family never gave any false information so is it right that the child must be kicked out in the middle of a semester to start over at a new school keep in mind that this is not the parents or childs fault what can be done about this? other than that the child has been doing very well in this school and it is filled with wonderful teachers its a great school but even that doesnt make up for neglegence of office staff why must this child have to go through all this its not the childs fault.........

I have just moved into this area and Ms. Lombardo has been such a help to our daughter and we appreciate all of her efforts to make us feel welcome. She and my daughter's teachers have been excellent to us.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
