At WHBrown STEM Magnet, our mission is to prepare our students for personal and academic success by providing a rigorous STEM integrated curriculum, which develops the whole child through the development of  creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking skills.

The vision of William H. Brown STEM Magnet School is to inspire and motivate our students to have self-awareness and a belief in their intellect, gifts and talents to become great problem solvers, collaborators, and communicators in a global environment. 

We are home to a full Broadcast studio to expose our students to journalism, video recording, and broadcasting. We have 1-to-1 technology for every student and 3 computer labs to increase the technological skills of our students and enhance the classroom learning experiences.

Priority is given to applicants with a sibling who is currently enrolled in the school in grade K-7, and who will remain enrolled in the school for the coming school year. After siblings are accommodated, 40% of remaining seats for the entry-grade level are allocated for applicants who live within a 1.5 mile radius of the school, and remaining entry-grade level seats are evenly distributed among the four socio-economic tiers. For all grades other than the entry-grade level, seats remaining after siblings are accommodated are filled through a general computerized lottery. show attendance boundary
