Our Vision, BOUNDLESS LEARNING, is our Dream for the future.
Our Mission is to ENCOURAGE, ENGAGE, INSPIRE, and EMPOWER in our daily work so that we will reach our Vision of Boundless Learning. Everyone at West Branch School carries out our mission on a day to day basis, including students, parents, teachers, staff, aides, volunteers, community members, committee chairs, and officers.
Our new Vision-Mission is guiding us and helping us tell the story of who we are. Thank you to everyone who played a role in developing this Vision-Mission. As a community, our work has just begun. We would like to encourage you to engage with us, so we can continue to inspire our students and our growing community, which in turn, empowers us to provide an environment where Boundless Learning is inevitable.
Interested in Applying?
Decisions for admission are made on a rolling basis as long as space is available. All students are eligible for admission without regard to sex, race, or economic, social, or religious background. Admission is not automatic. Sometimes the school as a whole or a particular grade level fills to capacity, and then interested families are placed on a waiting list.
All students are admitted for a six-week probationary period. If, during that time, it becomes clear to us that the school is not able to meet the needs of the child, the family will be asked to withdraw. This would be an extremely unusual occurrence, however. Space permitting and assuming no disqualifying problems have been identified, families able and willing to meet financial obligations and willing to commit their fair share of time and effort to the school can count on a warm West Branch welcome. Tuition Assistance is available.
The next step in the application process is to complete the Admissions Application and Parent Questionnaire forms. Fill out the form below to contact us for more info.
