West Branch School

Tel: (570)323-5498
Grades: K-6 | 50 students
The school is licensed K-6 and class sizes are small in order to facilitate the highest excellence in teaching and learning.
Smaller classes also create an atmosphere of acceptance where diversity is celebrated and conflicts are handled in a way that helps students to learn empathy, conscientious decision-making, and proactive problem solving.
Each child at WBS is considered "gifted" and learns at his or her own level.
This approach to education enables teachers to capitalize on the students' strengths and to seek out styles of learning that will encourage a student to excel.
