Dr Lerner and Cat in Hat


The Brownstone School in the past five years has gone through a remarkable transformation, the principal, David Perez and his highly qualified clinical and teaching staff are excited to be a part of this change.  Brownstone is a highly specialized program for students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Mood Disorders and other impulsive behaviors that require a challenging and rewarding environment. Through a coordinated and consistent effort the staff at Brownstone help students to overcome obstacles which impede their academic success and the ability to establish relationships.

Our goal for all Brownstone students is self-regulation.  We believe that only through self-monitoring can students make themselves available for instruction.  Therefore, the desire to learn must come from within. By utilizing our behavior management model, curriculum, experienced clinicians, technical support staff, and social skills programs, we are able to help meet the social, emotional and behavioral needs of all our students.

In addition, all middle school graduates are transitioned on to other Bergen County Special Services High Schools. This allows them to continue to have their needs met in a supportive and less restrictive setting within our district.

Our mission as educators is to provide high quality educational services to studentst to commensurate with the District's vision. We strive to offer structured, challenging, and educational activities within the frameworks of approved state curriculum in all academic areas, including social and behavioral goals.

We look forward to another year of servicing the sending districts and the students.
