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!
Students from Brown Elementary School in Jackson, Mississippi, recently attended PATHFINDER® at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, NASA’s official Visitor Information Center for Marshall Space Flight Center and the home of SPACE CAMP and AVIATION CHALLENGE. The three-day educational program promotes science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), while training students and adults with hands-on activities and missions based on teamwork, leadership and decision-making.
Brown Elementary students were part of the Pathfinder Program, which is designed for elementary and middle school students who have a particular interest in science. The students spent their three-days training with a team that flew a simulated Space Shuttle mission to the International Space Station (ISS). Once aboard the ISS, the crew participated in experiments and successfully completed an extra-vehicular activity (EVA), or space walk. Brown Elementary trainees and crew returned to Earth in time to graduate with honors!

THANK YOU St. Andrews Episcopal School for donating pizza, fruit, and pizza, and bringing in a Zumba instructor to work with our parents and scholars.

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!
