Harold T. Branch Academy is a really great school. It is not only a great school, but a great opportunity. Being able to attend college since a young age has helped me become more responsible. I feel that I will not have such a difficult time adjusting to a University, that I will attend in the future because of everything I have learned at my school. I really liked how at my school we have an etiquette class because there we learn how it is we should act in many business type situations and it prepares us for our future. I also like how even though we are not a school with sports we still play games against other early college high schools. This school has helped me realize what I really want to do in the near future.

Attending Branch Academy has been a wonderful experience as attending this school allows me to take college classes all while attending high school at the same time. This school allows you with the opportunity to graduate with your Associate's degree and they pay for two years of your college. The teachers are both caring and attentive to any concerns you may have or if you need to talk then they are always open to having a serious conversation with you. The one thing I would change about this school is the layout of the school as we do only have one hallway and it does often get packed with 300+ students trying to squeeze past each other in this one hallway.
Branch Academy was a wonderful experience I will never forget. The staff are all incredible, and all work hard to ensure you and your peers are educated in a safe environment. Along with this, the teachers are wonderful as well. All educated and dedicated to their careers. However, I feel there is a reasonable con. School work can feel overwhelming at times, as you also take on the load of a college student. In my experience, some of my instructors have not been so lenient despite the additional work loads. Students are given a study hall in their schedule to allocate time for college work. Despite my opinion communication is essential to stay on top of your work. Most instructors are understanding.
