Being Respectful, Responsible, Safe and Kind is the Browns Point Beluga Way. These expectations guide both students and staff to make choices that foster and support learning. Teachers and staff at Browns Point meet regularly to review student data and make plans based on individual student needs. Teachers and staff are also supported and encouraged to continue their individual professional development and learning. The culture of collaboration and support extends to Browns Point families and community partners. The active PTA helps support school activities, and volunteers are always welcome. Browns Point also offers two Highly Capable programs. SAIL is a five-day-a-week program for the top 1 percent, and JAWS is a one-day-a-week pull-out program.​
