Principal Mouton Fuentes

Greetings Willie Brown Community,


We continue to look forward to the 2021-2022 school year and our return to full-time, in-person school for our students. Teachers and staff have been working hard to prepare for an amazing school year ahead. Willie Brown is a rich and vibrant school community and I am honored to be entering my seventh year here as an administrator and my first year as 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 deeper learning through project based learning experiences and student collaboration. In addition, our students access our maker’s space where they are encouraged to problem solve, design and create. We emphasize community building and social emotional learning in our Advisory and Acceleration programs. We expose our students to engaging enrichment opportunities, in the morning and afternoons, in partnership with our Beacon Program, Good Samaritan. Willie Brown students are learners and leaders. Our staff is committed to providing each student the necessary foundation to develop the sense of self, purpose, and agency to excel in the 21st century.

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 am looking forward to our partnership and welcome your feedback as we move forward in the school year.
