Principal Welcome


Welcome to Merritt Brown Middle School, home of the Bears! We are a secondary-level school with nearly 75 faculty and staff members serving approximately 650 students in grades 6 – 8 in Panama City, Florida. Merritt Brown fosters a nurturing, family-oriented, safe environment in which students can learn and be successful. Our faculty and staff are committed to inspiring our students beyond limits. I have high expectations and know that our students are capable of doing wonderful things.


Students are invited to engage in the performing arts through our chorus and drama classes as well as our school band. Merritt Brown’s students have been honored and recognized in the State’s Art in the Capitol Competition and the Bay District Schools Tom Barefield History Fair. Through Career and Technical education curriculum offered on our campus, students are introduced to Java Script code and can earn computer industry certifications. Merritt Brown hosts an 850 We Will Regrow program in which students are able to give back to the community by working with their peers to replenish the community with trees after the impact of Hurricane Michael. Additional offerings to our students include Builders Club, NJHS, and athletics. I invite you to peruse our website and contact us with any questions that you have.
