This school has so much parent involvement. ItΓÇÖs a close net community that cares about their childΓÇÖs education. New school should be done being built by 2019. I moved to this area due to the school.

All three of our kids went K-5 at Browns Point (spanning 2001-2010). All in all, we & they loved Browns Point. Teachers & staff really care about the students. We have very fond memories of that place.

Very involved community, great staff and teachers. I moved to this area primarily because of this school! Been 6 years with 4 more to go and not one bad experience!

Browns Point is the best elementary school in the Tacoma Public School District in my opinion. It is an older school that is rich in traditions, but open to new trends. Some of the traditions include the 1st grade play, 3rd grade field trip to Northwest Trek, 4th grade Heritage project, and 5th grade Camp. The teachers are excellent, most have years of experience and advanced certifications, and they care about their students and their craft. The halls are always decorated with student artwork and writings. Classrooms are roomy because half of the school used to be a middle school, so there is a full size gym, music room, and a large library. The new principal is energetic and friendly, and he likes bringing technology into elementary education. He updated the website this year! My children started in kindergarten and have had a well rounded education in reading, math, writing as well as PE, library, music, art, and several field trips. The school also has the Highly Capable classes (JAWS and SAIL). The PTA sponsors WatchDOGs, the Science Fair, Art Docents, and parents volunteer in the classroom, all of which make this a stand out school.

Both my children attend Brown's Point. I can't say enough great things about it from the incredible teachers, to the caring staff, the friendly school climate, the robust PTA, the famiiles etc. The principal is not as warm as others I've met but she is fully present and is truly caring. I moved my kids from a private school three years ago into Brown's Point and that was the best decision our family has ever made. I highly recommend this school.
