  • Western Branch is a school that each person is different in someway but some how we find or form clicks of a sort so certain people fit into that click.Overall we are all the same, but we don't all fit into the same clicks or clubs.So every time you walk down the hall you are looked at like you are crazy if you aren't walking with a certain people.Other than that Western Branch Middle is a good school.
