Welcome to H.A. Brown Elementary School! We are a Kindergarten through 8th grade school with approximately 510 enrolled students. Our school provides a free breakfast and lunch program for all students. Programs offered to students include a comprehensive curriculum based on Pennsylvania State Common Core Standards with Special Education, Mentally Gifted, and ESOL services. Our school also includes two wireless network computer labs where students receive instruction in computer technology that includes research and presentation models. We also have a blended learning program that includes a Chromebook cart for every classroom Grades 1-8 in order for students to access their research-based on-line reading and math intervention programs. The school averages a 94% student attendance rate.
Our school is also supported by an after school program through Philadelphia OIC for students in Grades 5-8; WHYY Media Lab program for Gr. 5-8; PAEP Steam program for students Grades 5-8; and after-school enrichment clubs to support reading and math in various grades. All programs also encourage team building and other social issues.
We have a School Advisory Council that meets the first Wednesday of every month at 9:00 AM in our Library. H.A. Brown Academics Plus School provides a safe, caring environment that will empower students to become productive and contributing citizens in our society.
