Breckinridge Elementary School5

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.
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 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
