Brown is the best! I came in middle school and have stayed through my senior year. The teachers and faculty are just simply amazing with what they do, and have prepared me to move on to college next fall very well. The only thing I might want changed, is better funding for the athletic teams and art program.

I loved Brown School, but like all schools there are problems. The academics were top notch whilst the textbooks and facilities were not. There is mold on the ceilings in the bathroom, textbooks are falling apart/out-of-date, and faucets often to not work. I know this sounds contradictory - with me loving Brown school - but overall I loved the school because of the people. The administration is like apart of the class I've been with for 8 years and the relationships I've made, I wouldn't trade them for anything.
The school is different from many other schools in my opinion. The teachers and staff there are much more relaxed and willing to help then any other teachers I have been taught by and while they do try to make school and our work life a little easier for each of us, students are constantly challenged to do our best and our workload from classes is not very easy for sure. Students here are all there to learn and do their work when they are assigned something but, the only issue is that Brown is a diverse school with students who all have different ethnic backgrounds and have lived different lives up to that point, so if you plan to come to Brown school, keep a level head and listen to other students and teachers rather then scoff at whatever they intend to say.
