We have just moved to the West Branch area from near Detroit MI. My son attends Surline Elementary and has never been happier to go to school. I see such a change in him and after school he says he misses school. They are doing something right! He has daily homework which I believe is great because it keeps him on his toes. The staff is very friendly and helpful, I have no problems with this school and I am glad we moved to West Branch!
