From the desk of Superintendent Cordes ...


It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Breckenridge School’s website

Our Breckenridge vision statement, “Breckenridge Pride…Inspiring to Excel! is the guidepost used by the school board, administration, teachers, and all staff to provide an outstanding educational experience for all our students. At Breckenridge schools, everyone matters.

Our school board, administration, and staff are committed to real world individualized learning for all students. The student experience at Breckenridge involves active classrooms rich with educational technology staffed with committed teachers trained to engage and empower students to be designers of their own learning. Many teachers use Project Based Learning as a teaching methodology in their classrooms. Our goal is to prepare students to graduate on time equipped with the information and skills our partners in business and industry tell us are needed to be successful in this 21st century in which we live.

At Breckenridge Schools we love kids. We feel privileged to work in this amazing profession and honored to serve the students in our buildings. I will end by sharing two of my favorite educational quotes; first by Dr. Martin Luther King, “Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.”

The second is by the famous social psychologist, Margaret Mead, "Children must be taught how to think, not what to think".

Please visit us on Facebook to see more of the great things happening in our classrooms and with our co-curricular and extra-curricular events.
