Overall, the J. Graham Brown School is a place that everyone can belong. However, JCPS and the administration have been changing the true meaning of Brown. It is becoming less and less about individuality, a non-traditional education, and "self-directedness" and becoming more of an institution relying on test scores. Teachers that embody the true meaning of the Brown School are becoming scarce and are getting picked off one by one by the administration.

I have been at the Brown School since I was in kindergarten so I have witnessed so many changes. The Brown has evolved more and more as I have grown. It has a great family atmosphere and a mostly inclusive atmosphere. The school has had some tough changes that strayed away from traditional values but the school is turning around for the best!
I've made a lot of friends at the Brown School and I love that the teachers are down to earth, try to be our friends, and are laid back. There are some downsides to Brown. Brown can be kind of cliquey but usually everyone hangs out with everyone. Brown is also not very diverse and i feel like that makes a lot of the white kids very ignorant. Also, most of the students feel like we are only a test score, especially with our heavy work load. Brown can be a fun school but sometimes I wish I went to a normal school.
