Welcome to Gene W. Brown Elementary School!
Gene W. Brown Elementary is located in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Built in 1956 as Hendersonville Elementary School, the school began its educational traditions under the leadership of the principal, Mr. Jack Anderson. Today, Gene Brown is home to approximately 450 students and 35 teachers.
Gene Brown was recognized at a Level 5 Tennessee Reward School for the 2021-22 school year.
The faculty and staff at Gene Brown Elementary strive to create opportunities for all students to create lifelong memories. Some of the highlights of the 2021-2022 school year include our musical production of The Little Mermaid, bimonthly "Wheels in Motion" bike giveaways sponsored by the Hendersonville Rotary Club, drive-thru and in-person family nights, visits from Mr. Bond's Science Guys, and our One Book Blitz.
Each of our classrooms is equiped with a Newline Interactive Panel. 3rd through 5th grade is one-to-one with Chromebooks, and K-2 uses ipads.
Students in upper grades at Gene Brown Elementary have numerous opportunities for extra curricular activities. These include the Art Club, Bobcat Singers Choir, National Junior Honor Society, Girls on the Run Club, and Student Council. We also have a talent show every year that students from all grade levels can be a part of. At GBE, we learn about and discuss the 8 Keys of Excellence: Building Character. These 8 keys are, Integrity, Failure Leads to Success, Speak With Good Purpose, This Is It!, Commitment, Ownership, Flexibility, and Balance. Each month, we focus on a specific key and we learn about what it means to show that character trait.
The teachers and staff members at Gene Brown are involved in numerous learning opportunities around the county in order to provide the best and most current learning environment for our students.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our GBE family! We are looking forward to a wonderful new school year!
