Overview
  • About Willie L. Brown Jr. Middle School

    At Willie L. Brown Jr. Middle School, students learn to use project-based STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) practices to develop the foundational skills and beliefs needed to successfully major in STEM degrees and pursue STEM careers. Students use technology as a tool to explore their identities, expand their possibilities, and be of service to others.

    Ultimately, students will become advocates of social justice and learn to protect and expand the rights of humanity. Our brand new, state-of-the-art campus has the only middle school science laboratory in San Francisco public schools, and is outfitted with a premier wireless infrastructure to support student devices. This facility is the platform for our STEM-focused curriculum, where your student will spend their time with hands-on and relevant learning tasks integrating science, technology, math and engineering in classwork.

    WBMS has an Athletic Department with teams for baseball, softball, boys and girls soccer, boys and girls basketball, girls volleyball, and girls and boys track. As a new school, students who attend WBMS for all three years will have priority of any San Francisco public high school, excluding Lowell High School and Ruth Asawa School of the Arts.
