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

We are like a "BEAUTIFUL RAINBOW" with students from different countries and cultures! We also have a loving, caring staff that welcomes every child every day with a smile and a hug. Teachers also work diligently with each student to ensure they become productive thinkers and citizens. In addition, we house a Healthy Kids Clinic, which provides many services to students during the school day.
