About

Brown Elementary is located in the heart of the Midtown Community of Jackson, MS, and is one of 38 elementary schools in the Jackson Public School District. It serves students in grades Pre-K-5th.

In October of 2014, Brown Elementary was awarded a STEM grant from the Toyota Foundation to support implementation of STEM initiatives.  We now house the first formal elementary STEM program in the JPSD.

The Faculty and Staff of Brown Elementary strongly believe that all children are capable of success.  In partnership with parents and the community, we are determined to create a learning environment that fosters each child’s full academic potential so that we produce literate, competent, responsible students who will be able to reason critically and become functioning and productive members of the school, community, and the broader society.  We strive to be a leader in academic excellence!

Ms. Mississippi speaks to Brown scholars about "Girl Power"
Jasmine Murray spoke to our Lady Bulldogs about "Girl Power" and the dangers of smoking.  Jasmine Murray was born in Columbus, MS and is the youngest of five children.  In her year as Miss Mississippi, she has traveled around the state and nation encouraging girls to work hard, make school a priority, and stay away from the dangers of tobacco.  Brown scholars were so appreciative of Ms. Murray for taking the time to speak with them.  Thanks to Ms. Alexander and Dr. Denton for making this happen!

Brown Elementary Students Meet Daughter of Malcolm X, Ilyasah Shabazz 
 

 

In celebration of Black History Month, Brown Elementary School held a read-in with Ilyasah Shabazz, the daughter of civil rights icon Malcolm X. Shabazz read excerpts from her book "Malcolm Little: The Boy Who Grew Up to Become Malcolm X." Shabazz, who was two years old when her father was assassinated, is now a community organizer, activist and motivational speaker.  

Students in pre-K through fifth grades learned more about civil rights leader Macolm X and asked questions of Shabazz about her childhood. Top readers in each grade were also given an autographed copy of "Malcolm Little: The Boy Who Grew Up to Become Malcolm X."

Shabazz is the founder of Malcolm X Enterprises and a trustee of The Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center in New York City. Shabazz is also the author of "Growing Up X" and co-editor of the book "The Diary of Malcolm X" with journalist and author Herb Boyd. 


Brown Elementary has been awarded "Model PBIS Site" in Mississippi by REACH-MS. 

Way to go Brown! 

A special thanks to Ms. Russell for her hard work in making this happen!
