North Branch school News: Celebrating  excellence!

We are so excited to welcome our incoming Kindergarteners to North Branch Area Public Schools! 

Our newly constructed classrooms are spacious, with fixtures and furniture specifically designed for our youngest students. Each classroom is equipped with the latest technology and also has bathroom access, and the entire building benefits from state-of-the-art air filtration. The Education Center also has a brand new media center and courtyard playground!

The kindergarten experience at NBAPS has so much to offer in this critical year of learning! Our literacy program provides a strong foundation of phonemic awareness and phonics, and consistent monitoring of fluency to support the ongoing development of comprehension skills! An emphasis on “number sense” and problem solving in math are key to our curriculum design. NBAPS also has many hands-on learning opportunities, including art, music, physical education and Spanish, as well as science and engineering modules in its Project Lead the Way curriculum.

Virtual information sessions will be held next week on the following schedule:

Wednesday, Feb. 17 - 3:30 p.m.

Wednesday, Feb. 17 - 6:30 p.m.

We look forward to seeing our soon-to-be Kindergarten families at the Taste of Kindergarten event to experience our engaging learning atmosphere and to meet all the incredible staff who are looking forward to helping each child discover their unique talents and abilities! 

We look forward to helping each student unlock their potential! Welcome to the class of 2034!
