Students at Longbranch Elementary embark on new adventures in learning everyday! They have opportunities to discover their passion or genius through fun learning experiences such as campus clubs, Wonder Workshops, and “Celebrate”. During Wonder Workshops, PreK-2 students explore and problem solve with STEM and Challenge activities. During “Celebrate”, students discover how to make a difference in their town, state, or nation. 3rd graders study their community, 4th graders explore Texas, and 5th graders learn about America. 


Albert Einstein says,” Creativity is intelligence having fun!”


George Couros says educators’ task is to spark curiosity that empowers students to learn on their own, to wonder, to explore, and to become leaders.

We agree with him, and at Longbranch Elementary we are...Igniting the spark to change the world.
