    The teachers and administrator's are great for the most part. The are a little too strict but they try to reward the children for good behavior and academics. The resource officer is a concern. He's the only serious complaint that I have.

    I have no idea how any parent could say this school is great or that Dr. Robertson is great ! That person must work for the school .This school has a major fight almost daily you can hear loud cussing just walking through the school there is bad bullying right in front of teachers. Do not walk RUN !

    Brown Middle School has been an incredible expereince for both my child and us as her parents. The new principal Dr. Robertson is without question one of the rising stars in the Hamilton Coun ty School system and since schools are a direct refletion of the leadership I'm really excited about the direction Brown is heading. I'm of the opinion that with the wonderful teachers improved parental involvement and the exciting cast of leaders at the school Brown MS will eventually be one of the best in the HC system.

    brown middle is the best yeah it needs some repairs and the lunches could be better sometimes but overall brown is the best the teachers are always there for you no matter what the topic u can always go to mr. stewart or ms. reynolds although there is one thing everyone agrees to It is not fair that harrison does not have drees code and brown and central do......
