Breck is Amazing academically. The only bad thing about it are some of the students are snobbish and rude, but that's only because many wealthy parents put their children there. If your child can bear a little snobbiness and arrogence, put them in! Because the eduation they will get is great and I think it evens out in the end.
Academic programs: Excellent. Extracurricular activities: Excellent. Level of parent involvement: Excellent. Breck emphasizes on research more than anything else. Students should do many projects on their own. This way they learn how to use the resources (library, internet, etc) available to complete their projects. All students, grades 5 and up, are given a laptop computer. Teachers are great, they communicate with parents on daily basis. I strongly recommend this school to people who really care about their kids.
I am a Breck Alumn. You get all the attention you could possibly want from faculty (especially when you dont want it, ie bad grades) and you have so many freedoms. Not only that, but colleges all over the country recognize this school as one of the elite.
The acedemic perspective of this school is really amazing. My son has experienced great success in breck, and it has helped him through acedemic and peer troubles. Art and music are offered to the students, and so are many sports. Parents are sent a letter if their child falls behind, making the parents aware of everything that goes on with their child's life.
