We moved to So. Portland this year and are happy to say that we LOVE Brown School!! The teachers are fantastic, as is all the staff, and the offering of extracurriculars is wide. Our oldest was thrilled to find a Lego Robotics League here! The kids seem to be learning a lot and communication with their teachers has been amazing. The facilities are clean and comfortable, with a touch of old-school (in the older wing of the school) and the PTA here is just WOW. They foot the bill for many of the field trips, among other things, and provide so many activities and family events that we all enjoy. Nothing but raves from us for Brown School!! :)
