School Notes

  • At Breakwater School, teachers, parents, and children are partners in a celebration of learning. Understanding that early school experiences create the foundation for future learning, we encourage children to develop their intellects and explore their imaginations, speak individually, yet work collaboratively, investigate the ways in which they work the best, take intellectual and personal risks in a safe environment, act as responsible citizens in our community and in the world, value diversity and practice tolerance, and aspire to be lifelong learners.
