    This school is wonderful. It pushes students to do their best. The level of motivation from the teachers staff and principal is amazing. I love this school no other school compares. There is constant communication between parent and teacher to help your child along. This school values its students and staff and that is what makes it a great place to study. I have 2 children here and they are happy never complain about their school work (and they get quite bit of work to bring home). The children get recognize for their achievements and the music teacher is so loving and patient with the kids.

    Branch Brook school is like everyone says it's the 'Little School that COULD.' I have worked at this school for for 5 years now and I personally have seen many many changes. The teachers are a great influence to every student that enters and moves on from this wonderful little school. To many of us we don't judge the school by it's size but by all the love care and support that we make sure gets to each and every student whether it be a student from pre-k our special but 'smart' education students or our other grades. Looking at the way these students smile each day really does make a difference to all of the teachers staff and most of all that 'Great Principal' Mr. Demetroulakos (aka) to all of us 'Mr.Dee.'
