Starting in kindergarten the kids start learning Spanish, math, spelling. My daughter is almost reading one month into school. I love how each child is taught specifically to what level they are on. The art projects belong in museums! The music program is incredible. Kids are given instruments in kindergarten & begin lessons in 3rd gr. Plus they all use tablets for fun learning. The Birches deserves to win, the town only gives them 40% of allocated school funds. Even though this school is hands down the best school academically & artistically in this area!

My children had an amazing experience at this school from 2nd-8th grade and have exceeded all expectations as they moved on to high school! They were prepared educationally, socially, and emotionally going from a small encouraging and supportive environment to a large high school. I highly recommend The Birches Academy!
I am a parent of two children at The Birches Academy. My daughter is in 7th grade and has been there since 1st grade. My daughter is super bright and has always been challenged. The Birches meets children at their grade level. My daughter is being taught math two years above her grade level. My son is in 3rd grade. He has been there since Kindergarten and stayed back one year. He has been on an IEP since Kindergarten. Both children who have different learning styles and needs Love the school and love going to school. All the Teachers are amazing. Communication is always great, they are dedicated, and you can sense their passion for our school. At The Birches, parent involvement is encouraged. The arts are integrated with academics, which has been wonderful. I feel very fortunate to have found such a wonderful school for our children.
