Opened in 1963, our school was named for Madeline McDowell Breckinridge, a well-known philanthropist and a great-great granddaughter of statesman Henry Clay. The original building had 16 classrooms. In 1970, 16 classrooms were added to meet increasing enrollment needs. Peak enrollment was reached in 1972 with more than 900 students. The latest renovations were completed in mid-2014.

What makes our school special

Breckinridge is a culturally diverse school whose staff prides themselves on teaching students to work collaboratively with others regardless of their differences. We set high expectations for our children in a warm and caring environment. Our staff focuses on continuous growth for each child in order for them to achieve at high levels and become productive citizens. At Breckinridge, we believe in educating the whole child by providing instruction in the core academic areas as well as the arts. In addition to a wide variety of extracurricular activities, we are proud to house a Healthy Kids Clinic, which provides many health-related services to students during the school day.
