Everyone knows the old adage about the importance of location when it comes to real estate. Yet it’s not just about proximity to shopping, dining, attractions and similar features. It’s also about inclusion in excellent school districts. Even non-parents take the quality of the school district into consideration when looking at homes, as good schools are good for resale value, as well. For residents of Willow Branch, they’re fortunate to have access to some outstanding Chelsea AL schools that are part of Shelby County School District.
The schools for Willow Branch are Forest Oaks Elementary, Chelsea Middle School, and Chelsea High School. From county-wide initiatives to a variety of excellent programs at individual schools, there’s a lot to like about Shelby County schools.
For example, the All-Pro Dad Chapters launched in elementary and intermediate schools across the district last month. All-Pro Dad, a division of the national nonprofit organization Family First, has been built on a football theme and features more than 50 NFL players, coaches, and alumni who speak out on the importance of being a good father. Importantly, the group emphasizes “father figures”, as not every child has a father at home. They encourage stepdads, foster parents, grandparents, and even neighbors to get involved. Six times a year, they meet for breakfast and informational meetings with the children. Hundreds of fathers showed up at the first breakfast this year. This parent involvement initiative hopes to create meaningful and positive bonds with children and their dads, which studies show lead to greater academic achievement.
Another recent event was the Connect 2 Careers, hands-on career fair sponsored by the Shelby County Chamber. The two-day event was designed to help students better understand the intricacies of careers available to them in Shelby County. They learned about a range of high-demand, high-wage, career opportunities in fields such as engineering, public service, banking and finance, healthcare, construction, and more.
If Chelsea AL schools are one of the priorities in your search for a new home, the Willow Branch community is an excellent choice. With great schools and easy access to them, you can feel confident that your children will be receiving an excellent, well-rounded education, no matter the grade level.
