My daughter has attended The Branch School for five years. She is in middle school. She is receiving an amazing education here. The small class sizes make it possible for teachers to offer very experiential learning opportunities and to really know your child`s strengths and weaknesses. Homework is reasonable and allows for extracurriculars and family time in the evenings. We also love the daily outdoor time TBS prioritizes even at the middle school level. Most importantly, though, this school fosters a community of kindness and respect amongst the students. Teachers and administrators live these principles and and set the tone for a campus free from bullying and exclusion. The Principal is approachable, very dynamic, and deeply cares about every student at TBS.

Our children have attended this school since they were 3 years old and we are beyond content. The families are so close; the curriculum is challenging; the teachers are so loving! I like that they have 2 teachers per a class, that way one can teach and the other help a struggling student catch up or a student that is ahead keep moving further ahead. They focus so much on kindness I'm grateful we have never had to encounter the meanness that's so prevalent in other schools now. The counselor, a third and kinder teacher are especially gems.
