Ron Brown College Preparatory High School opened in 2016 and currently freshmen and sophomore students. We strive to create a community that supports all of their students in numerous aspects, such as socially/emotionally, academically, and in their college/career readiness. Through this support we expect for our students to become responsible global citizens.

The school counselors and care team members prepare the students with the necessary knowledge and skills they need in order to be prepared for college and/or career. Creating a supportive and secure community within the school by using evidenced-based practices and restorative justice practices is a goal here at Ron Brown.

Creating a cohesive and collaborative culture amongst the school community, including families and teachers, assists in changing the lives of the student body.
