Welcome to the 2013-2014 School Year!

Dear Parents and Families,

I am Derick Brown, Principal of the Brighter Choice Charter Middle School for Boys. It is a privilege to serve such a dynamic school community. I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning and growing with our scholars, working with our professional staff, and collaborating with our parents and community members.

We have worked diligently to prepare for this school year and are very proud of our strong and challenging academic program. Our scholars will have a rewarding educational experience. We will accomplish this by setting rigorous academic expectations for all children, providing support for children with extra needs, cultivating school culture while tending to the unique social needs of adolescent boys, and setting high standards for teacher performance.

Our dedicated staff works very hard to meet the individual needs of all scholars, and maintain personal connections with their families. We invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, attending, and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child. Please feel free to contact one of your scholar’s teachers or me if you have questions about opportunities for involvement.

We hope your visit to our website will give you a quick snapshot of life at our school. Please explore our links to find out more about our curriculum, programs, and daily events. You will also be able to access your son’s homework and grades.

I look forward to working with you and your scholar as we build a foundation, which will support success in high school, college, and whichever professional endeavor they choose to pursue.

Derick C. Brown, Ed.S.
