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!”

"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."

At New Branches, We Believe Students Should Have The Opportunity To Be Responsible Citizens In Caring, Respecting And Learning About The Environment.

Environmental Education begins in Preschool and builds upon knowledge of Michigan’s natural resources, environmental concerns and being stewards of the Earth.

Our teachers will meet our students where they are at and will work tirelessly to help ignite each child's love for life-long learning. - Terry Larkin, Principal
