Nothing is smarter than a
neighborhood school.

Think how far people are willing to drive to get their kids to a good school. That’s how important a proper education is. Now consider that in Daybreak, your kids can simply walk to a good school. In fact, 71% of Daybreak students walk or bike to school.

Daybreak currently has three schools: two K-6 public elementary schools — Daybreak Elementary and Eastlake Elementary — and a K-9 public charter school called the Early Light Academy. The plan for Daybreak includes additional schools as the community grows. Middle school and high school students attend schools that are less than 10 minutes from Daybreak by car: Copper Mountain Middle School and the brand-new, state-of-the-art Herriman High School.
