"My daughter is into the arts, she takes the guitar, participated in the Black History Program, she sang a solo. She does so many different things and I'm always astounded. She talks about her teachers like they are her best friends. She absolutely adores her teachers. This place is awesome!"
"The community at our school is incredible! We truly are a family who cares about each other beyond the classroom walls. We celebrate with each other’s joys and support one another through hardships and sorrows. We do what’s best for kids and whatever it takes as a team to see that our scholars not only get the best education possible but feel valued and accepted for who they are."

"My daughter been in Breakthrough schools since she started and I wouldn't have it no other way! I applauded all their hard work to make sure our kids get a great education! I am truly happy with the remote learning so far! Keep up the great job Breakthrough!"
"My opinion is that they take their time to teach the kids. in smaller classes and most importantly they get them college-ready from the beginning so they can be prepared. My daughter even recognize the difference when she went to a public school and she don't like it."
"We had a rocky start but thanks to Breakthrough school staff and teachers we were able to get it together my children had an awesome year and they can't wait to move forward for the rest of the year. This is their year with E-Prep I'm sure they will be great .. thank you all."
