Excellent school. Our son has had nothing but great teachers and the principal is outstanding!
I don't know why more parents don't complain about teacher-student ratio. With budget cuts this ratio will go up if parents don't voice their dismay or concerns. This is our childrens' education......Write letters, tell school districts.
I like Breen but have been disappointed in it the last few years. The teacher/student ratio has gone up. Resources for teachers has gone done. The school itself I think is typically middle class elementary school, however, we do have great parent volunteers and that does make a positive difference.
Breen Elementary is aacademically excellent school. However, lately, I have noticed that the school has been increasing the quantity of teacher/pupil ratio. My child is in 5th grade and the are 29 pupils in the class and suffice to say that this quantity of students in a classroom is affecting directly the quality of teaching the teacher is giving to the students. Parents need to be mindful about this situation.
Breen teachers go above and beyond to help our children learn. They do their best to try and offer as much as they can for our children have an opportunity to expand their minds.
We have just loved Breen!! We have two children who attend there and the teachers, principal and staff have been wonderful!!
Wonderful school, great parent-involvement, and the principal is very hands-on.
I have had 2 children attend Breen from K-6 and have one in 3rd grade this year. This is an excellent school. The teachers, staff and administration all work together to provide the best education for the children. I have had a GATE learner as well as an 'average' student and both of their needs and challenges were met by their teachers. I am proud to be part of the Breen Family.
We are thrilled to have our children attending this school. What a wonderful, caring environment, and an amazing staff! Mr. Thibedeau (principal) is a wonderful role model for the children there!
My daughter attends Kindergarten at Breen and she loves it. Her teacher is wonderful; challenging and strict, yet affectionate and generous with praise as well. I cannot believe how much my 5 year old has learned so far! There is a parent volunteer in the classroom every day, as well as the secondary Kindergarten teacher, which allows for a lot of one-on-one time with the teacher. In addition, the principal is friendly and knows the names of all the students and even their siblings. The grounds are clean. The neighborhood is wonderful. From what I know about the school so far, I have nothing negative to say about it at all. I am so lucky my child can attend Breen Elementary!
Breen is a quality elementary school. I was a member of the 1st 3rd grade class to attend Breen and found it to be so enriching. I know that the teachers and programs at Breen offered me a foundation on which to build all the skills and experiences of my future.
This school is wonderful. The parents are very involved. Although I would like to see more music and arts, I think they do well with what they have, considering they are a California public school. The principal is a big part to this schools success but unfortunately he will be leaving this year. Hopefully the new principal will be just as good. I have heard good things--we'll see.
Overall the experience with this school was fine although my son had one bad teacher. A bad teacher can be found anywhere and the rest of the teachers were really wonderful. I switched my son to Rocklin Academy in Fifth grade due to a smaller school environment. For most children however, this school is just fine.
Breen is the best school ever! You will love what Breen has to offer!
