Not only do they have strong academics, character development is emphasized as well! I have two girls here and they have developed friendships with many wonderful children.

I love Branch Brook Elementary School. I have two children there and we couldn't be happier. They have loved their teachers and the principal Mrs. Westrack is the best. There is a strong community spirit and the PTA organizes fabulous events during the school day as well as after school so the whole family can be involved! I'm so glad we moved to this neighborhood!

Both my daughters attend Branch Brook and are now in the middle and high schools. There is no place like Branch Brook it is truly wonderful caring environment for children to learn. I may not agree or like all of the teachers but that is to be expected anywhere. Mrs. Westrack the Principal is wonderful not only with the teacher, parent but more importantly the students. She is very involved with everything the kids do and enjoys joining in on activities with them, yet they respect and trust her. If we had more people like her in the school systems they would be a better learning environment for all children
