What Others Are Saying

“My son has had the most amazing school year, here at New Branches. He feels like he’s part of a learning family; he comes home excited to tell me about all the neat things his teacher does with Science and Reading – – – and better yet, the proof is in the pudding: for the first time, his MEAP scores were “advanced!” I’m so pleased with the progress he’s made! Thank you New Branches!”

Parent

“We have been extremely impressed the entire year. Attention to each child’s needs is outstanding. A varied approach to problem-solving – unmatched. Care and compassion, excitement and enthusiasm abound!”

Grandparent

"My daughter has attended New Branches Charter Academy for the past three years. She loves the school and its excellent teachers—one of the biggest reasons we chose New Branches is because they offer before and after school care. That program helpful for working parents."

"I love New Branches because it’s like a family there! There are a lot of teachers and assistants, the vice principal, the principle, the lunch people and the crossing guards! It's like a whole other family away from home."
