  • Spotlight on Richard Lewis Brown Gifted and Academically Talented Academy

    Congratulations to our very own, Richard L. Brown Gifted and Academically Talented Academy, recognized as one of three RAMP schools in the state of Florida.  The RAMP designation recognizes schools that are committed to delivering an exemplary school counseling program. 

    Kevin Bennett (former 5th grade student of Richard L. Brown Gifted and Academically Talented Academy) was selected to represent the state of Florida for the Kids Journal Through Covid-19 competition. Kevin's submission was published by Noah's Ark Publishing owned by the renowned musician Laval Belle. We are beyond proud of Kevin and his teacher Ms. Hand.
