    "This is our first year at The Branch. I was looking for a place that was nurturing and placed value on moral responsibility and kindness. I am fortunate to have a child that would likely learn easily in a variety of environments, so my highest priority was emotional safety and growth. We have definitely found this here! The kindergarten teacher is absolutely one of the best teachers I have ever encountered! Every child in that classroom feels valued and cared about by her. I love the low student-teacher ratios; the kids get a lot of attention and individualized focus. The administration and Head of school seem very dedicated to creating a school community that is an extension of the family. I had a very hard time letting go after staying home with my daughter for 5 years, and yet I feel completely relaxed and grateful that she is there during the day."

    "Mixed feelings about this school. My and my sister's child both went/go here. Our quiet, shy, eager-to-please child gets a lot out of it: The teachers are nurturing and do not force her to be forward or attract attention, which was exactly what we needed since we were coming out of a divorce at the start. The academic level is on target with the better school districts such as Katy or Spring Branch and the homespun atmosphere keeps her from being overwhelmed. There is a little too much focus on money, but then it is a private school. However, my sister's confident, independent (younger) son had a very hard time. He was regularly punished for little-boy things such as being fidgety or questioning the teacher, and his playful, though annoying, behavior such a tickling or horsing around, was often reported as dangerously aggressive. He was told that he was a bad child and started referring to himself this way outside of school. He often came home upset. The admin told his parents that they should make an effort to see how the other parents did things and Dad should not roughhouse with him. This school is great if your child is, like ours, the quiet type. Otherwise, look elsewhere."

    "The Kindergarten program is fantastic. My son is being enriched academically and socially. The teacher is exactly the type of person you want to guide your child through this grade. She seems to value every single child and has a heart of gold. She understands the need to balance the priorities of modern families with learning in the home. The classroom presents challenges for those who need it and support for those who need it. I am so thankful to have a place at The Branch School."

    "I'm in love with this school from the first time I walk in. We've been looking for a fun,challenging and nurturing school and I found it. I love what they teach about critical thinking,problem solving,strong leadership and work in group. Every day my son always exited to talk about the staff that he learn from school. They make the learning like a game. They event have show and tell every week to build kids confident in front of the class,incourage their imagination. This school is beyond my expectation. I couldn't ask for a better school."
