"We at Breakthrough set high standards and expectations for ALL students and are passionate about tailoring instruction to each child's needs. We are committed to fostering a positive school climate and culture through building and sustaining strong relationships with students, families, and colleagues. I love that our school's theme focuses on developing good people who already make a positive impact on society."

"I cannot say enough about how grateful I am to the BMSS community for the education and experiences provided to my children. There is a palpable culture that supports the social and emotional needs of the students, creating an environment ideal for academic learning as well as learning about themselves as individuals. The name of the school, Breakthrough, stands for turning breakdowns into breakthroughs. That’s a skill everyone can benefit from, and it is reinforced every day. Children are taught resilience, respect for themselves and others, and what it means to be part of a greater community. My husband and I often can’t believe we found this magical place to support our son and daughter’s growth and development."

"For the ten years that I was in Breakthrough, from Preschool to 8th grade, I didn’t just learn how to be a student, but a community member, as well. My teachers weren’t just disseminators of knowledge but co-conspirators in my academic journey and my overall journey as a human being. I was encouraged to tie the books we read back to my own life, our biology curriculum centered on local biomes and how we can reverse the effects of climate change through small, manageable actions, and our social studies courses allowed us to see how the teachings of civil rights leaders apply to the current political climate. Through Breakthrough I learned that a quality education directly increases one’s quality of life."

​"Breakthrough Magnet School has been a huge part of my life. The character-based education has impacted my life in such a positive way. I use these few of many of these skills in my day-to-day life (changing breakdowns to breakthrough, integrity, and responsibility.) I think character education is very important for early childhood development because it’s the building blocks to be able to help others connect to one another."
