We moved from Birmingham School District in Oakland County. NB is by far a perfect small town school, we couldn't ask for better teachers, fair admin staff, kind support staff and a welcoming student body. Best move for my children, can't say enough!

I liked all the class options that were offered. Also the teaching there was great. All the teachers knew what they were talking about and they are very willing to help if you need it. I’d like to see more support for the not so popular extra curriculars like band, clubs, and the lesser paid attention to sorts.
I loved that North Branch Area Schools (NBAS) were smaller schools. This allowed for more one on one time between the instructor and the student. Having smaller class sizes really allows the teacher as well as the student to be more academically focused. One thing that I would like to see changed at NBAS is the amount of student involvement. I think that all the students and staff should be working together to come up with more ways to get students involved with the school district as well as the community. I think more students becoming involved would also be beneficial to the student academics. For example the students could be spending more time doing educational or volunteering activities rather than athletic or other non proactive activities.
