My son has gone to Golden Branch Academy since 2008 and has thrived when the public schools didn't have enough teachers to handle his special needs. The teachers & principal is caring and nurturing and they teach how a student can best learn based on their individual personallity and disability. It is NOT a glorified daycare. If you have a special needs child, you know how difficult it is for them to function in the public school setting where the teacher-to-student ratio is 25-30 kids per teacher. At GBA, the ratio is about 8-9 students to one teacher so the students get the individual attention they need to function. They teach the kids based on their own individual personalities and special needs. It is a wonderful place for a special needs child to get an education and not get lost in the public school system.

This is not a real school they don't have any teachers. This is just kind of strange daycare for kids. They have a fake grading system where everyone gets A's.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
