Much of the research into student success is embedded in the core of the Breakwater Way including the most important identifier - effective teachers.
Our teachers are the foundation of our school. We have a faculty made up of some of the most creative, principled and hard working people one can ever hope to have guide our children. We are sincerely grateful for the talent, time and energy that each of our teachers bring to our learning environment.
The Capstone Project is a year long process in which Breakwater's 8th grade students pursue independent research on a topic of their choice, produce a substantial paper that reflects a deep understanding of the subject, conduct a visual and oral presentation before an audience, and, with the guidance of faculty and community mentors, complete a product inspired by their topic and a gift to the school from which they will soon graduate.
As the tinkering space at Breakwater school continues to metamorphose into our Curiosity Lab, opportunities for young engineers to make, discover, experiment and invent are made possible. March 18 and 19 the Open Bench Project partnered with Breakwater school to offer a 3d printer building workshop. Yes. Printer building.
