I have no idea how any parent could say this school is great or that Dr. Robertson is great ! That person must work for the school .This school has a major fight almost daily, you can hear loud cussing just walking through the school, there is bad bullying right in front of teachers. Do not walk, RUN !

Brown Middle School has been an incredible expereince for both my child and us as her parents. The new principal Dr. Robertson is without question one of the rising stars in the Hamilton Coun ty School system and since schools are a direct refletion of the leadership, I'm really excited about the direction Brown is heading. I'm of the opinion that with the wonderful teachers, improved parental involvement, and the exciting cast of leaders at the school, Brown MS will eventually be one of the best in the HC system.
