Irving L. Branch Elementary School joined the elementary Student 2 Student™ (eS2S™) program in 2020 for the benefit that it is designed to increase awareness of and address school transitions affecting mobile elementary school students through a faculty-led and student-engaged model.

Military kids move 6-9 times during their K-12 education, and change schools 3X more often than their civilian peers. You can find more on the S2S programs here: S2S
