At Breakthrough II, we teach Connecticut’s standards of learning through interdisciplinary units.  Our program emphasizes critical thinking skills taught through inquiry.  We include foreign language instruction in the school day.

Breakthrough Magnet North Compact


As Breakthrough II Magnet students this is our compact:


To ask ourselves when faced with a breakdown, “How can I change this breakdown into a breakthrough?”  To return no bad deed for another, to change bad thoughts to good ones, to keep our word, to help others in our school, home and community and to use our best manners wherever we are.

Dress Code


A dress code adds to the academic decorum of the Breakthrough II Magnet North.  Therefore, the wearing of the uniforms is mandatory.  It is a visible sign of identity and belonging within the school and serves as a gentle reminder for children that they wear special clothes for a special place.  Our students wear a cobalt blue shirt with the Breakthrough logo and khaki pants/shorts/skirts.
