West Branch School

  • 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.
