Academic Philosophy

At Brown Elementary, the entire staff works together to ensure that all students have the best experience possible and that each student is met where they need to be for success. We continue our journey with Leader in Me, helping our students build leadership and life skills, creating a high-trust school culture, and laying the foundation for sustained academic achievement. Leader in Me helps to create a learning environment that addresses the whole child's mindset with the belief that all students have genus and everyone can be a leader.

2022 National Blue Ribbon School

Brown Elementary was named a 2022 National Blue Ribbon School! The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program awards public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their academic excellence and progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Every year, the U.S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great schools that demonstrate that all students can achieve high levels of success. 

Brown was one of the first schools in Michigan to be awarded the National Blue Ribbon back in 2001 and then again in 2015.
