Welcome to Brown International Academy, where we foster the growth of internationally-minded people and create positive attitudes about learning. As an authorized International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, our curriculum focuses on the development of the whole child  in the classroom and in the world outside. By exploring themes of global significance melded with the Colorado State education standards, we deliver a strong academic core curriculum, while providing room for children to learn and grow in a nurturing environment.

Our History

The school was named for Edward L. Brown, who served the Denver Public Schools from 1898 to 1931 as a teacher, principal and assistant superintendent. Although Brown opened its doors in 1952, the school is now an authorized International Baccalaureate school, which it accomplished by undergoing an intensive certification process.

When Brown was selected by DPS for revitalization in 2003, a committee of teachers, parents and community members researched several different curricular programs and ultimately chose the IB Primary Years Programme. Today, a stroll through our natural light-infused building and art-filled hallways is a reminder that there is always something fresh and innovative happening at Brown International.
