Principal Gaines

I am Dr. Stacy Gaines, and I am excited to serve as Principal of Lucille M. Brown Middle School for the third year!  I grew up in Brooklyn, New York and Miami, Florida and have loved serving the Richmond community since my move from North Carolina three years ago. 

I am committed to ensuring that we focus on our student’s success here at Lucille Brown Middle School.  We believe that each and every student has a gift to share with the world, and we work hard to unlock their highest potential. We have high expectations of our students, and expect all students to uphold our school vision--to become caring and respectful individuals who inquire, learn, reflect, and take action to better our global society.

Families, I encourage you to continue to work with us to ensure the success of our children.  I ask for your continued support all through the school year to help us reach our academic goals.  Your encouragement and engagement makes a huge difference. Please continue to be involved in your child’s studies, continue to build relationships with our teachers, and continue to engage with the entire Richmond middle school community!  Our children are counting on us!

If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at or 804-319-3013.  It is a privilege to be a part of this community and I look forward to our continued collaboration!

Sincerely, Dr. Stacy Gaines
