Childhood is a wondrous time of discovery, when children develop their internal values set even as they absorb the complexity of the world around them. It’s when the funny squiggles on a page transform into letters, then into sentences, and ultimately, into a story so compelling you just can’t put it down...
Across our PK3-8th grade continuum, we instill a drive toward discovery, intellectual resilience, and leadership ability. All our students experience hands-on, project-based learning with a science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) focus. We offer challenging academics and collaborative learning opportunities and help each student develop critical-thinking capacities, creative problem-solving skills, and a lifelong love of learning.
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.
There is increasing evidence that “diversity makes us smarter,” an axiom that some universities and colleges have embraced for years, and the rest of us are coming to appreciate at the K-12 levels.>>
