Brown Avenue Elementary School is a small, vibrant, child-centered school. Our school may be small, but we have strength in our convictions of working together - child, parents, and school. All decisions are student-centered. We are not only educating for today, but for all the tomorrows. We educate the whole child. Academics, the arts, physical, education and social/emotional learning are critical elements of education. We also emphasize kindness, compassion, understanding, communication, forgiveness, and laughter. This is our way of sharing and spreading our "Koala Kindness" within our community and beyond. Our goal is to provide our students with the foundation to grow into happy, healthy, inquisitive, problem-solving citizens of the world.
