Originally built in 1965, LP Brown serves approximately 380 K-5 students. This neighborhood school works to provide a nurturing, safe and exciting learning environment for its students.

Our students come from a mix of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Special Education services are delivered to about 20% of our students, using a combination of support styles. LP Brown houses one DLC program (K-3). 

Our Student Support Team and Multi-Disciplinary Teams work with staff to provide ongoing resources for our students’ academic or social/emotional needs. LP Brown is a PBIS school, and has solid structures in place to recognize positive student behavior and to intervene with appropriate strategies to support growing students. LP Brown is committed to the Multi Tiered Systems of Support approach; data drives our decisions through full commitment to Response to Intervention and Professional Learning Communities. 

The LP Brown community is highly involved in the education of every child. Enrichment activities regularly funded through the PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) help staff extend the curriculum for all students. Art, Science, Music and P.E. continue to be targeted enrichment areas for the school year. The entire LP Brown staff is skilled and takes seriously the challenge of providing meaningful learning opportunities for all students.
