The Branson School Reviews

Same thing said as in many previous reviews in terms of the academics. Truly demanding - no lie, my daughter was at the top of the best private middle school in Marin, and she has a boatload every week night.

That being said, this place truly is magical. Where to start? The campus is beautiful, facilities - both academic and athletic are top notch. The peer group is the highest caliber in the country. I mean that. The school draws the top students from both Marin and San Francisco.

Diversity is surprisingly prevalent here, and there is definitely a huge push by the school. The community is great - there are many opportunities to meet others via events and socials.

For such a small school, athletics are impressive (and competitive). Most students here are active in some sport, many also play at the club level. School spirit is very strong and refreshing for a school this size.

Honestly, no real negatives. The commute in/out of Ross can sometimes be a pain?

Second-to-none facilities, academic rigor, opportunities to participate in a multitude of activities and the greatest college counseling team around are what makes Branson what it is-one of the top high schools in the world. Inexcusable lapse of judgement in the hiring of several administrators and teachers keeps Branson from getting 5 stars.
Gem of a school: Caring and skillful teachers; beautiful campus (and setting for learning); terrific performing arts; great athletic program; increasing diversity and attentiveness to difference; outstanding financial aid program. Academics are rigorous but without a competitive atmosphere; students are collaborative, hard-working, and overall seem happy. Focus on honesty/integrity is an important distinguishing feature.
