The Gold Standard in Education; The Foundation of Our Community.

Principal's Page

Thank you for taking your time to visit our website and taking time to learn more about our amazing school. My name is Steven Branim and I am the principal of Wurtland Elementary School. I attended Wurtland Elementary School as a student and graduated from Greenup County High School in 1999. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Middle Grade Education from Ohio University and a Master’s Degree in School Administration. I also hold a Rank 1 certification in School Administration, both of which coming from Morehead State University. I am married to Sarah and we have two wonderful children, Addison and Alex.

I look forward to working with your children and having the opportunity to help them to be successful students in and out of the classroom. With the support of our parents and community, we will strive to help our students prepare for the educational endeavors and opportunities in their lives.

Our mission states: Wurtland Elementary will provide every student a quality education in an environment that enhances student achievement in academic, social, cultural and personal skills; thus allowing them to become responsible citizens throughout life. The parents, staff, and community will work together to meet the individual needs of all students.

I believe that through the support of our parents and community and all stake holders involved with our students, we will accomplish our mission.

If you have any concerns at all, please contact me at any time.
