Branch Elementary School serves students from the rural countryside near Arroyo Grande, located along the picturesque coastline of San Luis Obispo County. Originally founded in 1889 by F.Z. Branch, the school maintains a sense of its rich history and close-knit family feeling, while providing a rigorous academic program. The caring, dedicated, and experienced staff works in tandem with parents and community members to ensure all students at Branch Elementary School receive the highest quality education possible.
Governed by a seven member Board of Education, Lucia Mar proudly educates more than 10,000 students who attend Lucia Mar’s eleven elementary schools, three middle schools, three comprehensive high schools, one continuation high school, one independent student study school, and one adult education program. Ongoing partnerships with community colleges, state universities, and local businesses also provide an important role in educational improvement.
