About the School
William Wells Brown Elementary, which replaced Johnson Elementary and Russell Elementary, is a joint project between Fayette County Public Schools and the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government. In addition to being a top-notch school, our $15 million facility includes a community center complete with a full-size gymnasium, a multipurpose room, and a kitchen classroom for adult education programs. We also house a Healthy Kids Clinic, which provides many services for students during the school day.
Our mission at William Wells Brown Elementary School is to educate all students to academic proficiency while developing their ability to think critically and persevere.
Our vision is to foster a positive environment where students, families, school staff, and community members work together to inspire our students to be lifelong learners.
