The Brown’s Town High School puts focus on quality education for all and service to our Jamaicans in need.

In 1966, the school began as a department of the Brown’s Town All Age School under the leadership of Mr C. E. Atkinson, and continued as such until the year 1968-1969, where it was declared a separate school with approximately 560 students. For the period 1969- 1971, Mrs M.E. Straw was appointed acting principal. Mr A. Wilson was then appointed as the first principal (1971-1972). He later resigned and Mrs Straw was again asked to act as principal: a position which she held until August 1973. In September 1973, Mrs O. E. Chambers was given the baton.

She was appointed principal and served from 1973-1986. Dr R. Walker took over from Mrs Chambers, serving from 1986-2000. The position of principal was then held by Mr W. Murray who served from 2000-2004. Mrs L. Royes-Smith then acted as principal until May 2006 when Mr J.R. Feraria took over the leadership of the school. Mrs S. Brown-King had a short stint as interim principal. Mr Alfred Thomas is the current principal and he assumed the role in January, 2016.
