Misha Branche believes a Montessori education is ideal for her son Axl as her family and she appreciate how the learning style meets each child where they are and is tailored to their individual abilities.
“We love the close-knit family-like community at Waterfront Academy,” Branche said. “Everyone is very hands-on when it comes to the day-to-day as well as the special events.”
Axl loves strengthening his Spanish skills and learning math and geography. The family loves the school’s yearly Christmas pageant too.
“We can really tell how much the teachers care about their students, they are always providing ways to help you help your child at home and their interactions are very personalized when communicating with you,” Branche said. “It’s great to know our son has a special bond with his teachers, and that’s what makes them special.”
The Branch family first learned about Waterfront Academy during their search for a Montessori, Spanish language kindergarten. They saw Waterfront had great reviews and the Catholic aspect was a bonus—Branche grew up Catholic and thought it was important to maintain that continuity.
If the family had to describe Waterfront Academy in three words they would say engaging, organized and special.
The Branches include a puppy named Ivy. When they’re not attending karate, swimming or soccer lessons, they love to explore the city. The Branches also enjoy Friday night family movie night and relish the simple things like spending quality time together and taking trips with extended family and friends.
