Timeless Teachings in a Changing World
At West Branch School, we acknowledge the individuality of our students and recognize that each child is at his/her own stage of development socially, emotionally, and academically. Our non-graded program is designed to honor the uniqueness and individuality of each student, allowing a child to progress at an appropriate rate, based on demonstrated abilities. Each student can then be challenged at a level determined by skill rather than age or grade.
Our goal is to nurture, guide, and teach the whole child. Learning at West Branch School is an integrated experience. This means that our academic program is complemented with a social curriculum that helps the child to develop interpersonal skills within a loving, safe, and caring environment. Respect for others and self, character-building, and global awareness are all recurring principles within our social curriculum.
