Unique—that’s the term most often used to describe the Brown School, which serves as a districtwide Self-Directed Learning Magnet School for students in kindergarten through grade twelve.
Brown provides a less-structured learning environment, extensive community interactions, cross-age groupings, and a diverse student population. On any given day, some classes work together on a lesson while others go on an excursion to observe, say, local government. Often, students work in small groups or on individual projects. This informal environment cultivates students’ skills of self-discipline, responsibility, and decision making, ultimately enabling the students to develop self-directed learning styles.
We are a community school. We provide a community environment to support individuals’ learning needs, and we expect every student, staff member, and parent to contribute concretely and regularly to the greater good.
