About Our School

Students at Breakthrough Magnet School enjoy seven and a half acres of land with playground areas and fields. It is a school in the city, but with a suburban atmosphere. Located in a state of the art facility that was custom built for its theme, to include a library/ media center with a computer lab and television studio, gymnasium/ auditorium, outdoor amphitheater, green roof gardening area, and spacious classrooms.

Breakthrough Magnet School, one of Hartford's highest performing schools, is the first of only two magnet schools in the nation whose theme is character education, and now, is the first and only school in Connecticut to provide mindfulness training to all students. BMS provides a rigorous and authentic learning experience in which students use real purposes and audiences as catalysts for the development of curricular skills. They gain knowledge, utilize higher order thinking, exercise body and mind, and explore the arts, technology and social values.
