Open Quote I have enjoyed my time working with Brown. The school overall appears to have a vision of developing the whole child. Children are assessed on a regular basis and that information is used to decide their next step. The teachers are always friendly and willing to speak with parents. There are many opportunities for families to participate in the school through volunteering, attending extracurricular activities, and supporting the students through fundraisers. There are also many volunteer agencies that work with the school and children. One agency has a before school store that allows the children to come to school and pick up all their school supplies for the coming year (backpack, uniform, shoes, notebooks). Brown appears to be a model school in their mission to help and educate children. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

About Immunization Rates:
Each year, public and private schools across the state are required to send data about their students’ vaccination status to the Illinois State Board of Education. The state Board of Education compiles the data and shares them with the Illinois Department of Public Health. Public health officials use the data to monitor trends, track compliance with state immunization laws and identify pockets of vulnerability should an outbreak occur.
