Piney Branch Elementary School5

We are so fortunate to have Piney Branch as our neighborhood school. I would have chosen it from 100 others. One unique thing is that PBES has a swimming pool on site and the students swim as one of their PE units.
Teachers, Staff, Students and Community make this a wonderful place for children to learn. Many parents debate whether to keep their students in this school or to send them on to the highly gifted centers. My vote for my younger son is to have him stay at PB. I want my children to have the love for learning which is encouraged at Piney Branch.
Mrs. Dubois and Mrs. Nelson are outstanding leaders who know all of the students individually. The staff and teachers are outstanding as well. The school has a very private school feel to it in that the teachers all know the students so well and are in tuned with their needs. We are lucky to have such a wonderful school in our neighborhood.
Piney Branch has one of the highest percentage of students taking accelerated (Middle School) math in the elementary grades in Montgomery County Public Schools. At every grade level more than 50% of students are performing at or above grade level in both reading and math.
