On August 23, 2021, our long-awaited campus expansion began. We broke ground on a new LEED Silver certified building, one that will house the Hightower Middle School and expand art, music, and tech class space for Lower School students.
As a private school focused on inspiring students to love, learn, and lead, The Branch School instills a drive toward discovery, intellectual resilience, and leadership ability across our preschool, elementary, and middle school program. All of our students, preschool through grade 8, experience hands-on, project-based learning with a Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math (STEAM) focus. This hands-on, project-based STEAM program makes Branch students deeper thinkers and more enthusiastic learners, laying an important early foundation of scientific knowledge and technological know-how. Our challenging academics and collaborative learning opportunities help each student develop critical-thinking capacities, creative problem-solving skills, and a lifelong love of learning – making us one of the best private schools in Houston.
We encourage you to schedule a tour to come learn more and see our beautiful campus. We look forward to meeting you!
The Branch School is a small school, but my transition into a larger high school was easy.
My son is a year ahead in math in the accelerated curriculum, so there’s no comparison between where he is here and where he’d be in a public setting.
The academics are excellent, but the kids also enjoy learning and have fun. They like coming to school.
I want our students to be better than they thought they could be. Success means they’ve grown, and we believe everyone can be successful.
A year ago, the pandemic forced profound changes at The Branch School – indeed, for every school and student across the country – as we had to offer our private school online.
