Brown Memorial School, a Roman Catholic parochial school in the Diocese of Paterson, offers programs for children in pre-school through grade 8.
Rev.
Brown was the first Catholic school in Sussex County and was named for the first pastor of Our Lady of the Lake Church.
The school has built a reputation for developing strong spiritual values in an equally strong academic environment.
It is a reputation gained through the efforts of dedicated teachers at all grade levels, hard work and diligence on the part of our students, and the participation and support of school parents.
Staff development and curriculum improvements have also had a positive impact on student achievement, as demonstrated by our students' and school's accomplishments.
