    "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."

    "After unexpectedly relocating from overseas, we narrowed our school search to 4 schools in the area. I knew when I arrived at The Branch School it would be our school of choice. Speaking with administrators and teachers only cemented my decision. Our two boys have found a nurturing, communal environment that encourages interaction from the youngest students to the oldest and offers them familiarity with educators throughout the school. The school encourages and welcomes parent and family involvement and we are fortunate to have very active participants. The boys have thoroughly enjoyed outdoor classroom activities in what they describe as the 'big backyard'. I know that they will never be lost in the shuffle here. They are allowed, and are comfortable enough, to be creative and fun and most of all, themselves. We are nearing the half-way point of our second year here and I remain confident in the choice we've made to be a part of The Branch School."

    "The Branch School is a HAVEN for us! We were so amazingly lucky to find this school. I have Kindergarten and Preschool aged boys, they are both attending. Although school has been in session for over 8 weeks now, I still pinch myself every time I drop off / pick up and wonder "Is this real? Is it too good to be true?" I have met many other parents who share the wonder I have expressed. Many of them are long time Branch School attendees, whose children have been here for many years. Parents have a great love and appreciation for the school, the teachers, and the staff. They can't seem to say enough about what their kids have gotten out of their time here, and what they have learned. I myself have worked in several schools and I really have to say, this place seems to be the real deal. Academic achievement is serious, and social development is taken extremely seriously. My boys are happy every day, their teachers are EXCELLENT, the administration is amazing - They truly have it together. The hard work and love they put into their school is obvious. If you're looking for a school for your child, do yourself a favor: visit the Branch School, you will be very impressed."

    "We could not be happier with the quality of education our son is getting at The Branch School. I feel the school has an innovative learning environment where character building is just as important as traditional academics. There appears to be strong leadership and an active parent group. The teacher's heart seems to be so large. She is calm, practical and adored by my son. She communicated with families regularly. I think The Branch School is teaching my son to be the sort of person I want him to be."

    "I toured a great number of school across Houston before enrolling our son in The Greenhouse program at The Branch School. It was hands down the best decision we ever made for him. The school is progressive, nurturing and strikes a wonderful balance between academics and play. As a parent I feel well informed and encouraged to make connections with other parents. With part time, full time, half day and full day options I felt that the needs of each child was put before the bottom line. Now in the PreK 4 program we continue to be impressed by our son is doing whilst at school."
