Overview

Overview

Breakwater School says

Breakwater is a progressive independent day school where your child - from preschool through grade eight - will thrive in a challenging and exploratory learning environment. Proudly engaging and inspiring curious minds since 1956. At Breakwater School, teachers, parents, and children are partners in a celebration of learning. Understanding that early school experiences create the foundation for future learning, we encourage children to develop their intellects and explore their imaginations, speak individually, yet work collaboratively, investigate the ways in which they work the best, take intellectual and personal risks in a safe environment, act as responsible citizens in our community and in the world, value diversity and practice tolerance, and aspire to be lifelong learners.
