Here is Renee's interview with Principal Holly Gustafson of Breakthrough Magnet School - South in Hartford.
She shares about all of the opportunities at Breakthrough Magnet School - South and how you can apply!
Breakthrough Magnet School South, 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. BMSS 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. We also have multi-age classrooms (similar to a Montessori approach), with 3 & 4 year olds together in PreK, 1st & 2nd graders together, 3rd & 4th graders together, and 7th & 8th graders together in middle school.
