About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Deborah Brown Community School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Deborah Brown Community School Reviews
Horrible School that teaches self-hate among the black children that attend the school. Deborah Brown Community School has implemented that dreadlocks and afros are unacceptable hairstyles that distract from the education process. As a predominantly black school, this is a pure shame!
Natural black hair is a beautiful thing and that image should not be taught as being "wrong". A child was just told her natural hair is unacceptable, which in effect, tells her she is not socially acceptable unless she has a perm or press and she needs subscribes to the European society's view of beauty. She was too black.
How sad that an African-American school would state in their policy that the way a child looks can distract from their studies. What a lesson they are teaching black children about our natural beauty? The more "white" you appear, the better you are? Give me a break. This is a sad excuse for an educational institution and I would not recommend any parent send their child here. If I could rate zero stars I would. Their whole staff needs a lesson in class and humanity.
