Made an acc just to reply to this.
I was in a similiar situation to your little brother when I was his age, although I'm not a Chinese national I have ancestry from there.
First off, I'd ask your brother whether his 'friends' are truly friends or not; if he was being harassed with racist taunts, ask him whether he thinks friends should care more about his well-being and safety or whether they consider him a snitch for something which is honestly affecting him.
I would also recommend if possible for him to record the incidents on his phone or take pictures of the perpetrators if he doesn't know who they are, but it doesn't matter if he can't. Reporting them to the teachers would be the first thing I would do, and to see whether it ends there or not.
But if it doesn't, honestly I don't know how rough your area is, how strong your brother is or whether these people are truly dangerous knife-wielding gangbangers or not, but if its happening inside the premises of his school, then honestly the next time they attack your brother, tell him to trash talk back, call them a dirty scumbag or whatever, just tell your brother not to show himself as someone whos passive. If the scumbags want to start a fight, let them as long as you know theres no weapons involved, and I don't think it'll matter if your brother is the one to start the fight by throwing the first punch either, as long as they're the ones who started being aggressive and considering that they are the folks who are taunting him with racist remarks.
I mean what are they going to tell the teacher, "the person I was making racist remarks to for the past few months hit me first so I'm not the one to blame"? If your brother is with his 'friends', then now is the time to see whether they truly are friends, they won't let it turn into a 3v1. Just make sure there is atleast one teacher visibly nearby incase it turns ugly.
This is one of the reasons why racism and attacks are so common against Asians imo. So many appear passive and weak to the perpetrators, its why it happens so often to other Asians, its a cycle. I wouldn't worry about causing trouble to punks who think its ok to attack me for no reason. If I'm the one whos about to **** someone up for yelling racist epiphets against me, I'm not the one who started the trouble, they are for attacking me in the first place. Like you said, the racist attacks stopped happening when you got in a scuffle. The same happened with me when I was in high school as well.

PS: We are a Chinese Nationality, we don't cause trouble what so ever and we would never get into fights (unless we really needed/wanted to)
Edit: Reread your second paragraph, I agree with what Arianto said to move schools if the admistration honestly doesn't care at all. The teachers at the places I went to were sympathetic towards racist victims and took incidents like your brothers seriously.

Don't capitalise the first letter of words in the middle of sentences for no reason.
Do capitalise the first letter of words at the start of sentences.
Do capitalise the personal pronoun i.
Do use apostrophes correctly.
Whatsoever is one word.
