Breckinridge is a truly exceptional school, with outstanding teachers, staff, and leadership. Our children have thrived at BES, as have children of our friends and neighbors. The atmosphere is upbeat, positive, and supportive of learning at all levels. A great asset to the community at large.

This school has double standards! My child has being hurt and bullied and there was no punishment for the bullies, because my child does not cry about it! But if my child jokes or says anything and the other child cries my chilld is always punished.

Breckinridge doesn't have a lot to offer kids that are above average. They don't even give awards for straight A's. My kids have gone to other public schools and this by far was the worst.

I love our school because the faculty and staff go the extra mile. They love the kids and even the caffeteria ladies know the kids names. Everyone is so friendly and helpful.

Of the four schools my children have attended over the years, this was their least favorite by far. The environment in the upper grades at the school is particularly negative and damaging to children. My children learned relatively little and rarely felt happy or welcomed at Breckenridge. Thankfully, they've moved on to another school now.

I have two kids at this school now and we love it. Their teachers are wonderful and caring. The faculty as a whole are devoted to my kids and we appreciate it.

I have had three children at Breckinridge. One graduated from high school in 1999; one finished Breckinridge in 2003 and one is currently a second grade student there. I have nothing but praise for this school. The teachers truly care about the quality of education and the welfare of each child, and it shows. My children have thrived there. I had taken advantage of many opportunities to volunteer in various aspects over the years, and have always felt appreciated. I am thankful that my children had the chance to get a great start in education at Breckinridge Elementary. Terry Tucker

My child has attended Breckinridge Elementary for the past two years (1st and 2nd grades). I have been very impressed with everything about this school. It really is the small school with the big heart. My daughter has really thrived there and we were made welcome from day one. We will be moving and she will attend a different Botetourt County school, but we will always treasure the time spent at Breckinridge. It also really impressed me the way all of the teachers, the principal, and the rest of the staff knows each child by name and makes them feel welcome.

For the most part, Breckinridge's teachers are great at teaching the students but when requested that my child get extra after school help with Math three times, I never got a reply. I had to resort to homeschooling while sending my child to school. Certain teachers do not care to explain the work to them so the parents have to do what the teacher gets paid for. After sending two of my children to Breckinridge, there have only been two teachers that will not help one of my children understand even though it is a small school with small classrooms and these two teachers will not communicate with me until my child gets a bad grade even though I've written notes and spoke with the principal about helping my child understand the work better.
