West Branch School Photo #1
  • 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.

This is such a wonderful school, and although I wasn't fortunate enough to attend here, it's been a huge part of my life! This school is literally the reason I moved back and live here, because it's the highest quality and least expensive I could hope to find! I mean telling my daughter lily she will miss school is a threat, she loves it so much!
