Why Enroll at NBAPS?

  • When you choose North Branch Area Public Schools (NBAPS), you are choosing a school district with a wide range of opportunities and offerings not always available in this area. What makes NBAPS stand out? 

    NBAPS offers STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) starting in Kindergarten and continuing through graduation. Project Lead the Way, the district's acclaimed robotics program, LEGO robotics, and more contribute to providing students with this 21st Century curriculum. 

    NBAPS provides Chromebooks for all students grades 5-12. Students are assigned a device and keep that device for both school and home use througout the year. 

    Unique opportunities such as the Pro-Start Culinary ProgramAir Force JROTC, the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program, college credits in high school, Balanced Literacy and the school district's math study, Community Service Day, Farm to Table, standout food service, and more.

    NBAPS is a leader in providing unique opportunities for families such as Here Comes the Bus, which allows parents/guardians to track bus progress in real time, and Thoughtexchange, which fosters vibrant and productive discussions about the future of education at NBAPS.

    In May of 2017, voters approved a $70 million referendum that is allowing the school district to make major improvements to our facilities. Projects at the high school, middle school, and Sunrise River School were initiated in the summer of 2018, and projects will continue across the school district through the summer of 2020. New classroom spaces, furniture, technology, improved activities spaces such as the auditorium and stadium, and vastly upgraded common areas, will serve generations of students will into the future.

    Our mission is to "inspire dreams, build integrity, and instill hope in our students, our staff, our families, and our communities." Great staff, great programs, great facilities, and great students make that possible every day!
