B.R.I.C.K. Education Theme

A "breakthrough" philosophy permeates our school. Staff models the utilizing of "breakdowns" as stepping stones in the creation process, opportunities for generating "breakthroughs". An environment of "coaching" supports student's work, in which all students are "coaches" and the staff members are "head coaches" for mutual support in academic, physical, artistic and interpersonal endeavors.

Breakthrough's character education curriculum raises student awareness in 5 major areas:

b Changing Breakdowns to Breakthroughs by applying problem solving strategies
r Taking Responsibility for being the author of one's life by mastering one's self-talk and subsequent actions
i Understanding how Integrity (keeping one's word) empowers relationships and goals
c Increasing Contributing to others within the classroom, school and community
k Increasing one's Knowledge in all areas to better inform one's choices

The program also emphasizes:

  • Interdisciplinary curriculum celebrating the rich international and ethnic diversity of the student body
  • Student electronic portfolios
  • Foreign language study (Spanish)
  • Strong unified arts program including visual arts, music, physical education and technology
  • Laptops for middle school students
