Principal Corner

Mr. Brown

Greetings Willie Brown Community,


I am so excited to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. Willie Brown is a rich and vibrant school community and I am honored to be entering my third year as the school’s principal.  

Willie Brown is the district’s only STEM middle school. In addition to rigorous academics, our school boasts exceptional visual and performing arts,  robotics and engineering programs. We continue to provide personalized and Deeper Learning through project-based learning experiences and student collaboration. This year, we are excited to expand our maker space - allowing more opportunities for our students to design, problem solve and create. We are also happy to roll out even more leadership opportunities for our students (like student council and peer resources) and expose them to the engaging after-school offerings (such as coding) in partnership with our new Beacon, Good Samaritan. Teachers and staff have been working hard to prepare for an amazing school year. Willie Brown students are learners and leaders. We are committed to providing each student the necessary foundation to excel with 21-century skills, be agents of their own learning and lives and otherwise be change agents.  

I believe that each of us plays a critical role in these efforts.  I have no doubt that our school will realize that vision if we work together as partners, in the work, each assuming a role to ensure that our children receive the best education possible. I welcome and desire your input as we move Willie Brown Middle School to become one of the top middle schools in the district.
