About

About Our Namesake

Our school is named after Richard Bransom. Mr. Bransom owned Bransom’s Grocery Store prior to his death in 2001. He cared about others, and he greatly supported BISD students that participated in the job training/work programs. His wife, Cindy, retired in 2004, and she had been a reading specialist at Taylor Elementary. There is much to discover at Bransom Elementary School. The building design and architecture, that is so noticeably different from what most people have ever seen, allows the campus to focus on experiences with nature and science. Certainly the school grounds easily lend themselves to outside experiences, gardens, nature walks, exploration, appreciation for nature, conservation, etc. Our staff worked to create our vision mission and committment statements.
