Student Support Team

In support of Breck’s Mission and Values, the school is deeply committed to providing developmentally appropriate support for students’ academic growth, physical health, and social emotional wellbeing preschool through grade 12. Division-level and/or grade-level teams meet regularly to discuss student needs. Plans are developed to address identified needs in collaboration with families throughout the process.
