What Parents are Saying
"The best thing is the curriculum, my child is really learning new things and comes home excited and teaching others the things she has learned in school. She is learning how to identify more words which are helping her read books more without help."
BPS Parent, on Literacy
I love the fact that they focus on reading. This was my main reason for enrolling. Because my child was having trouble with comprehending when he was reading. He wasn’t understanding what was going on in the stories he was reading. He improved so much. I couldn’t be more grateful!
BPS Parent, on Literacy
The teachers here honestly care about the students and put the best foot forward to help them achieve the goal in front of them. And the communication is nonstop with events and my child’s progress. This is my 2nd child to attend and I’m truly happy with this program.
BPS Parent, on BPS Teachers
What’s best about my child attending a Breakthrough School is, Breakthrough Schools really care about your child and their education! They take it serious and also makes my child eager to learn! Communication is very important to me and Breakthrough Schools make SURE you know what’s going on in your child’s class, what’s being taught, ways to improve your child’s progress etc. I love that about Breakthrough Schools and I ALWAYS recommend them to everyone!
Whats best about my child attending a Breakthrough School to me is that she has access to experience a variety of different educational opportunities to help guide her along the way in achieving her goals for her future.
The staff is friendly and it is convenient that the school is K-8.

Helpful Tips for Completing Your Application
Take your proof of residency out of the envelope.
Take a clear photo of your proof of residency and birth certificate.
Make sure your proof of residency is recent and complete.
Proof of residency includes the date within the last 90 days, your name, address, and where the document is from.
- Pay stub

If you do not have a proof of residency, provide a notarized statement.
If you do not have a proof of residency in your name because you live with someone or in someone else’s home, please have the person you live with provide a notarized statement stating that you and your scholar live in the home or at the address with them and
provide you with their proof of residency.
If your name is not on the child's birth certificate, custody documents must also be submitted.
