Rise Up, Read More

  • Ronald Brown Academy is on a rampage in engaging students in the world of reading.  Standing behind the research of students reading daily drastically increases academic success and improves their rate of graduating from high school and later attending college.  We encourage our students daily to spend 15 to 20 minutes or more a night reading at home and to actively participate in the upcoming Detroit Public School Community District Rise Up, Read More Challenge.
