I attended Bradshaw Christian for 5 years. I would say the only good part about it is the fact that it is a Christian school. I was honestly able to have my relationship grow with God. Besides that everything was not just bad but horrible! It is overpriced for what you get. Many of the teachers are subs who get pulled into teaching posistions because not many decent teachers actually want to teach at Bradshaw. If you plan on wanting your kid to go to a reputable college don't send them here because the best they will get into an expensive private Christian college unless you can manage to get an athletic scholarship. In my opinion they are extremely profit based, no matter how much money they recieve they will always manage to find an additional cost throughout the schoolyear. I was a straight A student all my years at Bradhsaw, but then I changed to public school. I realized Bradshaw didn't prepare me at all for high school, so I had to catch up and I am still catching up in order to maintain my 4.0. Your kid will enjoy how easy school is, but just plan on them going to Sac State or an equivalent college if you send your child here. Goodluck!

I sent my daughter to a Christian school because we are Christian and want our beliefs to be interwoven in academics. I read some of the comments made by parents who express their anger because Christian beliefs are taught at Bradshaw. DUH, it's a Christian school! If parents want their children to be able to accuse Christian beliefs as being HATEFUL they should NOT have sent their kid to a Christian school. There are numerous public schools where you can be LGBT as much as you want - I don't know why these people want to invade our space and force us to believe as they do! I'm not going into the public schools and trying to force kids to believe as Christians do. Non-Christians please stay out of Christian schools - all you do is pollute our environment with your own HATE.

Well lets just say the school is horrible in all types of ways to start off with. 1. The dean of students are in no way helpful to the students at all. They hop onto social medias and stalk the students down, print off the "proof" when it comes time to deal with an altercation and then proceed to give punish on an issue that didn't even occur in school. 2. The front office middle school and high school tend to carry a smile on their face, but when it comes to sharing information and helping people they act very agitated and annoyed, even though their jobs is to help people understand exactly whats going on in the school. 3. When it comes to teaching, the teachers know what they are doing.the real problem is the head staff. They can not run the school in a very efficient way considering they like to drop and bring teachers in very short time periods. 4. The school pretty much wraps all the kids in bubble wrap( theoretically speaking). The kids never really get to learn or know about what is going on in a bigger environment where rules/religion aren't used to control a mass. 5. Curriculum wise, it is just a mess. I recently took my child to a public school and she was falling behind

I hate this school. I am now in a public school and as soon as I entered into it I found my self falling behind in math, english, science, etc. The things that the public school kids new about the subjects, I didnt know. May I mention that I was a straight A student in Bradshaw, but an A in Bradshaw is like a C in a public school. I've spent most of my life at Bradshaw, but now me and my parents see that it was just a complete waste of time at Bradshaw. My mom has had problems with the front desk, and so has my cousins mom. The front office dont even dare to try and help you, they rather give you a quick "yes or no" answer and then send you off your way. My cousin has also left the school. They are unnecessarily strict when it comes to discipline and it doesn't even seem like they care to fix the problem, but that they rather just give demerits, and punishments because its the easy way out. They take money from people, but in all of my years at Bradshaw I have hardly seen a thing improve except for the building of a highschool and a gym. At the rate they are going, they might as well of left that out because in NO way possible can they run a school and keep people happy. Nuff said

My son attended Bradshaw for two years and we had issues right away. Teaching and administrative staff know nothing about early childhood development. They recommend special needs testing to any child that doesn't "fit in" with the way these untrained teachers feel kids should act. Heaven forbid your 4 year old like to run around. FAR FAR too much teaching staff turn over. The good teachers leave and they replace them with new people who have no idea what they are doing. I have removed my child from the school for a more positive school with a trained staff.

This school is different than from any other school you'll ever send your child to. First of all, it's sheltering. It shelters you from the outside world. Your child will soon be behind in academics because they provide low classes that don't challenge you. The teachers are terrible. The only GOOD teachers are the two math teachers, and one english teacher. The rest are just awful. They've hired many subs before, all without knowing anything of the subject, for months on end, just so they would "teach" the class. The demerit system is awful, and the Dean of the school? Don't even get me started. This school is just, awful. They degrade people who are different. They don't allow you to be yourself, if you are getting in the way of their authority. If you seem to be different, they put a magnifying glass on you and use the, "Well you have to do this or you get expelled." They wouldn't even let a teacher be homosexual, so he felt the immense pressure and awkwardness to leave. The students, are great, to an extent. This is a sheltering, terrible school. You will be judged. They will shove religion down your throat until you choke. They trick you, deceive you. There's no winning.

This is a great school. My children (now in the 2nd & 3rd grades) have attended since Pre-school. The school continues to focus on academic excellence with a foundation that started at Pre-school. They are a Biblical based Christian school that includes weekly Bible memory verses in addition to all other regular curriculum subjects. The Parent Teacher Fellowship works with the school administration to address issues, suggestions, and future goals of the school in the same way that a PTA would. This is a private school that is growing and as such may have a few growing pains. With that said, the school is truly striving to be a school that offers it s students the best environment and opportunity to excel academically, grow in their faith, and be prepared to face challenges as they move forward. Bulling is not tolerated but our kids are also being taught to work through their issues with each other in a respectful, caring, and Christ like manner. I would recommend this school to anyone that is seeking a more family-involved approach to their children s education. It is well worth the tuition, which is lower than most private schools.

My grandson has been attending school at Bradshaw for almost 4 years. He is getting a real education, in that he's being taught how to think, not just how to take tests. The campus is very safe. As this is a private school, very little misbehavior is tolerated. The curriculum is Christian focused, but follows all State of CA Dept of Ed curriculum guidelines. It feels a little expensive every year I pay his tuition, but the payoff is his excitement about learning. I will do everything possible to keep him in this school.

We have been here since preschool, our daughter has thrived there and is now entering kindergarten. We have had some difficulties at school (who hasn't at any school?) But, we have had our concerns addressed immediately. There are a number of rules that are expressly stated in the handbook. Once again, it is a Christian school, biblically based and that comes with the truth that is the scriptures. We plan to stay through HS. In her classes, there have been a number of mixed race and other than white children, quite diverse population.

My 2nd grade daughter was really nervous about going to a new school and making new friends at her first year at BCS. It seemed as if all of the families were very close and knew each other quite well. I volunteered at many school events in the time we were there and I had no parent even attempt to speak to me. They only associated with each other, and their kids were the exact same way. My daughter was being bullied to the point where she'd fake being sick when recess came so she could go to the office and wouldn't have to face the other kids. My daughter was going to the front office nearly everyday because she was getting bullied, and the office administration did nothing but point fingers at me for allowing her to not deal with the bullies herself. All of this happened within two months, and we immediately decided that any public school would be better than this school that was claiming to preach God's word. As soon as she transferred to public school, she was EXTREMELY behind. My oldest daughter has friends who attend the middle school, and all of them are a much worse influence than any public school kids I've seen. Don't waste your money on BCS, you'll regret it.

The teachers are wonderful. I had read other reviews about children that are struggling will not get help, I have to say I have 3 children attending the middle school and the teachers are going out of their way to help the one child that is struggling. ( Tutoring during lunch hours, after school tutoring) I love this school, the teachers are amazing. It's not perfect, but my children are happy and learning in a wonderful environment.

Not good for our student who was a preschooler. A horrible experience with the teaching staff. Sad and very disappointed in the preschool administration. All teachers should be trained in Diversity..,I will never ever recommend BCS to any parent! And when asked why? I will share my horrible experience regarding our student.! Parents be aware & listen to your children when they come home and tell you about their day at BCS!

Our son has attended Bradshaw ever since he was in pre-school. We love the school, the teachers and the administrators. We have found the staff to be loving and compassionate with the students, and very professional. I work for a school district, yet I choose to have my son at Bradshaw, where he is not only receiving an excellent academic education, but also receives Biblical teaching and has the Christian lifestyle modeled for him by his teachers. But parents need to remember that this is a Christian private school, and a key reason many parents choose Bradshaw is because they teach and affirm basic Christian doctrine as well as teach academics. So if parents or students live lifestyles or promote beliefs that conflict with those teachings, they should not be surprised when the school takes appropriate action. If a parent or student does not agree with the religious teachings at Bradshaw, it may be that this is not the school for you. Just don't try to make the school change to fit your beliefs, because it will not work. God willing, our son will stay at Bradshaw until he graduates high school!

I have sent two sons to Bradshaw Christian High School. The best thing about this school is the positive safe environment, which is why I gladly pay for a private school when public schools are free. The amount of homework greatly depends on how many college level courses they take and the speed of the individual student. I my case my second son took about 1/2 the time for the same class workload (10 versus 20 hours/week). Each student will have credit for about 6 college classes when done. The students were homeschooled before they entered, and I love how classmates and teachers reached out to them. I've seen great friendships form along racial and economic lines. Expect the students to hear a Christian message and be taught those values in most classes, which I think is a big plus. Teachers and coaches care about my kids. Even in this economy the school continues to grow. They do hold students accountable for their actions, another plus. If you as a parent spend time at a function, you will be impressed by how these young adults are kind and personable.

We are currently on our 8th year at BCS. My girls are in 5th and 7th grades, with academics above grade level. The teachers have been absolutely amazing! The homework has been fair. No complaints with the work. I agree with the other comments about the administration. There is A LOT of nepotism. They are narrow-minded. I'm a gay dad with a master's degree in education, yet unable to volunteer as a teacher or be involved in leadership because of my sexual orientation. I'm conservative and in a committed relationship, but because my partner is not female, and of course we don't have have the option to get married, we are excluded from being too involved. I stay because my kids are doing amazing. I love the fact that I've known the other parents all these years and, as my kidsapproach the dating years, I like the fact that I know the boys' families already. The tuition at BCS is cheaper than other schools. It's expensive, but it's a private school.

I'm a Father of two girls at this school. For one, our 2 year old, this is her first school or childcare experience. Our other Daughter is in one of the Kindergarden classes at this school. This is our first year at this school and it is only 2 months into the 2011 school year. I first want to disclaim that I have no ties or affiliations with this school and this review is real and uninfluenced (because I have read other school reviews that I was highly suspicious of both positive and negative). I'm very happy with the school class sizes. Our 2 year old daycare has as many as 3 teachers for less than 20 children. Kindergarden is less then 20 kids for the teacher. Maybe it's the uniforms but the kids just look better also. Theres no troubled looking kids (scraggily dressed, messy hair, unhappy etc). All kids have a smile and get along etc. My kids come home happy also. Flexibility is awesome, I can drop off my kids as early as 6:30 am and pick up as late as 6 pm. Fortunately we don't have to leave our kids 11.5 hours but it's a nice option and the cost is the same. Value is evident; daycare is cheaper here than most other locations we checked and potty training is included.

The school is a true example of how discrimination has taken over school systems. The student handbook states that the school is a non-discriminatory environment-- but excludes sexual orientation. Sexual orientation other than heterosexual is listed as an "immoral" act worthy of disciplinary action and/or being excused from attendance at Bradshaw Christian High School. My son was expelled from the school merely because he stated that homosexuals shouldn't be discriminated against-- and the expressing his opinion on this "immoral" action was enough to be expelled and excused from coming back. My son is not a homosexual but was merely expressing his opinion that HATE shouldn't be taught in the classroom.

We are starting our second year at BCS, and couldn't be happier to have our son out of the public school system. He was not be challenged in public schools, and was being bullied. Now, he's being challenged academically, treated with respect from the administration, teachers and his peers, and is in a safe, loving and welcoming environment. The sports programs are wonderful, there is a strong arts department, the text books are current, brand new, and there are enough for every student. Homework takes no more than an hour on an average night, and sometimes up to two hours. My son is bi-racial and I've never seen, heard or even been given the impression that there is any racism from anyone on the campus. I have no problem with the fundraisers since the money is used to improve the school, and I love being able to volunteer in many areas of the school. Enrolling my son at BCS was one of the best decisions, and I couldn't be happier with the education, and closer relationship with Jesus that he is getting. Roll, Pride, Roll!

We love BCS. Our child is in a quality enviornment with good morals and balance. Certainly the cost and constant fundraisers are tough but the investment is well worth it. Academically...pretty good but as an earlier post commented, if you are struggling there is little support. I think my child would be worse off in the EG public system although probably posting better grades. There is a lot of homework and lack of support for those struggling, the expectations are quite high however my child loves BCS and has made wonderful friendships. Another ealier post made comments about racism among the administrators; I have never hears anyone making racist remarks and it's a good thing I haven't. It's true, sometimes it feels like there is a click with the administrators (close-knit family/friends) but the heart of BCS is not them but the families that surround our children. I have never seen such a supportive network at this large scale. You should see how many families attend academic events in comparison to much larger schools. There is good and bad in everything but the balance scale still leaves me saying...we will too be a BCS alumni family. Go Pride!

This school is not meant for ANY children (families) of color, racist attitudes and behaviors exist. On numerous occasions parents made derogatory statements and comments towards African Americans; one particular member of the school s tight knit family used the N word. The school also allowed a Conferate Flag to be printed in the 2010 year book. When questioned about it, the school administration said it was an oversight but never issued a formal apology beyond an email. I truly believe most Bradshaw Christian staff desires to educate children, I just do not believe the administration knows how to deal with race issues surface, particularly when it s among their own. It seems almost a contradiction to say my daughter academically and socially thieved at Bradshaw. Yet, both years she attended the school, she connected with her peers and a several teachers, establishing friendships that continued into college. Every organization brings good and bad points to the table. I just felt the administration tolerant racism.

We were at this school for several years and left for a variety of reasons. It is a small school with a small view of the world. School adminstration and teachers are not selected for their education or experience. Those in charge of the school are from a small tight knit family/group- teachers outside of that "group" soon leave the school. When we left we found our children were behind in academics.

My daughter attends Bradshaw Christian and our family does like the school. I do think it has a better than average academic program and the teachers are great. However, I have to agree with all the previous posts about struggling students. If your child needs extra help with subjects or struggles in any way, BCS is not the school for you. They are mostly interested in students who excel immediately and don't have a lot of time for those who don't.

GET READY FOR TONS ANDTONS OF HOMEWORK! I like the school, but we will not be returning with our students next year. Our fourth grader has on average at least three to four hours of homework each night. Our student is a good student, I can't imagine how long students who may be struggling a bit must spend. The amount of homework assigned in fourth grade is absolutely ridiculous. I am trying to figure out what my son is doing in school all day if he is coming home with this much homework. We don't want our younger two children to have to experience such a negative amount of homework, so we will not stay with the school.

Bradshaw Christian is AWESOME - academics and athletics! The teachers are excellent and work well with the students. I feel the school instills discipline and the motivation needed for a student to achieve his/her goals, and offers a high standard education to prepare students for college. The campus is attractive and continues to grow. The baseball field donated by former major league Greg Vaughn is one of the best in Sacramento. The athletic department is phenomenal! The teams are strong in many areas, and quit frankly of the best being well conditioned and disciplined. The discipline and family oriented feel of this school is worth the $$$ and sacrifice.

I use to love this school base on the fact that when my kid started class the teachers would allow us to drop him of early or pick him up late, since they know that their parents need to work, his old teachers is the best!!!. Now with the new Preschool Director and his new teachers my respect for them dropped. They wont allow me to drop him of early or pick him up early or late. It has to be on time or I have to pay extra $5 per everytime i drop him of early or pick him up late. So that means extra $10 per day. His teachers has attitude problem against my cousin who dont mind dropping and picking him up at school. I am pulling him out of BCS because of the n Preschool Director and to his new teacherfor now showing compasion to the parents.

I think the school means well, and the teachers too. Unfortunatley, I don't know that the teachers have the ability to deal with students that struggle in class. I know the parents need to be involved in their childs learning as well; however, when you address it with the teachers it seems as they don't have any solutions. Also, all testing of your child still goes through the public school system. Our son has gone there for 3 years, held back once and now is barely making it through 1st grade. I think the school needs to focus more on the actual education they are providing to all their students, not just the ones that excel or hold back your child until it's harmful to the child.

I agree with the above comments. I have two children in Bradshaw one in elementary who is doing very well and one in middle school who is struggling tremendously. Bradshw works very well for those kids who get it quick and are great academic acheivers but if your child is having a hard time don't expect Bradshaw to provide that extra time needed to help turn it around. I do like the idea of my children learning about God's principles and how it is incorporated in the curriculum but sometimes I feel the teachers and administrators do not always exhibit the best example of God's principles.

We have five children at Bradshaw and are now into our 11th year there. It is the single most important decision we have made as parents. In good times and in bad we have done whatever it takes to cover the tuition to keep our children in a safe and moral setting. Nice cars and sparkling credit ratings will be long forgotten decades from now, but our children's characters and superior education will be part of the foundation of a better world we pass on to future generations. I thank God every day for allowing my family to be a part of the Christian Community that has built this fine school.

I am a teacher at Bradshaw, so my opinion of our school is biased. I wanted to correct some of the misinformation in other reviews. We are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and have been since 2006. This is the same accrediting agency that serves the California public schools, and we received a 6-year accreditation, the highest they award. Many of our teachers hold credentials or post-graduate degrees in their fields, and many others participate in educational leadership opportunities such as College Board programs and the state's Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment program. BCS has the lowest tuition in the area if you compare us to schools of similar size, academic rigor, and extra-curricular activities (that's why we have to do fund-raising). This year, teachers will go without raises in order to avoid an increase in tuition.

We have 2 children at BCS. We have been there for 4 years. Our third child will be starting there soon as well. The school is amazing. The principal is incredibly approachable and involved in day to day activities of the students. We have had some teachers that we like better than others as other reviews have pointed out....but you will find that ANYWHERE. The fundraisers? If you don't want to do them...don't! They are not mandatory. We sacrafice to put our children here. We find it worth every penny. I feel so absolutely fortunate to have found this school for my kids!

I have 2 children at BCS, one in 5th grade and one in 8th grade. This is our 5th year at the school and we have been very happy with the academics and extra-curricular offerings. The teachers are professional and caring. I send my children to this school because I want them to be in a Christian environment where they are safe and feel like they matter. This school provides this and much more. My children are being challenged academically and are learning life skills. The one thing I would improve at the school is to make sure the administration (principal/vice principal) staff are more enmeshed in daily life at the school and with the parents. Regrading the fundraisers, the school is very active in this direction but they are also quick to let parents know that no one can possibly participate in all of the fundraisers.

We've had children at different times in the preschool program and it really is hit or miss with the staff. The turnover is high and I had problems with some 'newer' staff member dragging my child by the hood of her sweatshirt. It is a good school but keep close eye on the teachers and staff.

I have to agree with a previous comment posted by a parent. Really high-achieving students thrive here, but students who struggle in any area fall consistently behind, despite best efforts by their parents. It is so frustrating to have spent $15,000 on my child's education thus far and have her so far behind. I love having her in a school where she can pray, but I feel that there should be more programs to help students who are struggling.

My children have attended both private and public schools in the past and we transitioned to Bradshaw while one child was in elementary and the other in middle school. We transferred for academic reasons, we wanted a quality education, but we stay because the academic curiculum satisfactory as well as the environment is one that I want my children to be raised in. The teachers pray with and for children and parents and I feel very blessed that my children get to expereince this throughout their day. As a bonus, diversity is highly respected in the school, as well. I believe that the tuition is more than affordable, especially considering that the school has a great daycare program that helps to offset the cost.

My son has been at BCS since he was 5 and he is now 16. What a great education he has gotten! He will graduate in 2 years with honors and his future is bright. College choices will be many and the staff and teachers at BCS are to thank (in addition to my son's hard work). There is discipline in every grade and respect for others is a must - but these are good things. In addition to the amazing academics, the football program is terrifc. The coaches are the best in the league, some of the most dedicated (and talented) individuals you'll ever meet. I have nothing bad to say about my experience and my son's experience at BCS!

Our son loved the preschool program and is so excited about being in his new kindergarten class. We are pleased with their academic program and the extracurricular activities they have to offer. Our experience with the teachers and staff have been exceptional. The level of parent involvement is high. Sure, we are required to put in 25 hours (2 parent home) of work a year. Something we would do for nothing! The school has a lot of fundraising that is optional and parents do what they can. The tuition is reasonable compared to other schools. We are excited that our son has learned so much here! He is reading small words and we are confident he will be reading complete sentences by the end of kindergarten. His math skills are great. He is adding, subtracting, counting by 2's, 5's and 10's. We are proud to be a part of BCS!

I'm not thrilled with the fundraisers and cost for extra-curricular activities, BUT the tuition is less than other Christian schools who also have fundraisers and add'l costs.

We have had our children at the school for 5 years now. Basically it is a good school, but has alot of growing pains. The school is a safe environment in every aspect.

My child has attended BCS for two years now, since PK. I love the preschool program and the elementary school is challenging as well. I find the teachers there to be very caring and I appreciate that she is learning the bible and Christian values. However, the drawbacks are all the fundraisers (I've probably donated at least $200 combined) and the discipline. I thought my child was treated a little too harshly in the beginning for being a bit rambunctious. I don't know if I will continue to send both my kids there as it is a lot of money, but they will definitely attend the high school.

We have our son in the Pre-school Program. I like that he is learning about Christ and singing the songs at home. I also like the homework he gets every week. We pay about $400 per month for us to bring my son there twice a week! And then there are sooo many fundraiser over there that its a little too much. I get more heat on the progress of the fundraiser than I do with the homework or kindergarten testing.

I have had two children at this school for many years and planning on moving my youngest to public school. The quality of teachers are minimal. It is hit and miss on the curriculum. It is like they try different methods and see how they work and then they are gone. To the detriment of the kids. My son has not done well there. Basically they are caring, good Christian people.

We are a very proud Bradshaw Christian School family! We have 5th grade, 2nd grade and Kindergarten students in attendance. They truly stand firm on doing what is best for the children. Not only are our children excelling academically (performing well above nationwide levels), they are growing up to be good, concerned citizens in their community. They are non-denominational, but administration, staff, and teachers are Christ-centered in how they do their work and how they accomplish their tasks. They take the time to not only pray for families and the community, they also take the initiative to proactively 'DO' what they can to make a positive difference in people's lives. Needless to say, we love the school not only for the education they provide, but for their support and concern it gives to all members of the BCS family.

My daughter started pre-school with Bradshaw Christian school and loves it. The PK and Kindergarten teachers have a lot of energy and make a child's first years fun and memorable. My daughters is reading 4 and 5 letter words in Kindergarten and can't wait for 1st grade!

I had 2 children that attended Bradshaw from pre-school through Kindergarten. Although I loved my childrens teachers there was definitley issues with Leadership in the school. Their lack of compassion as a Christian School was appalling.

This is a wonderful school. Not too small yet not too large. The teachers take a personal interest in your child and the administration staff knows each child's name. Because the school is small (about 1500 students PreK-11th)there is a greater sense of belonging. The homework (high school level) seems to be pretty heavy but over all both my children are happy there. The quality of academic programs is high. The teachers are knowledgable and well versed in their subjects. There are many extracurricular activities including music, art, computer and sports. The school is in the process of building it high school building. The new high school will also include a tennis court, swimming, track, baseball field, and a performing arts area. Level of parent involvement is high and each family is requied to 'put in' 25 hours of work each school year.

My son attended Bradshaw Chrsitian School for both preschool and Kindergarten. We were extremely pleased with the school. My son was reading sentences in their Jr. kindergarten (preschool for fours) class. He not only knew his sounds, he knew his blends and the reules for sounding out words. In kindergaten, they took things a step further. They read books, teamed up with 5th graders for a reading mentor program (reading buddies), and took computer and library classes. Their math program was very strong as well. They learned to add and subtract, count money and fractions, just to name a few. Some people thought this was too advanced for kindergartners. But the kids were interested and excelling. The main reason was the teachers made learning fun and it had been a pleasure to watch.

Fantastic school with programs that focus on spiritual growth, positive character development, academic excellence, and ethical/social contributions back to the community. The teachers at the school have exhibited a strong desire to work with students and teach. They work with administration on building better citizens. Our children have grown in many facets and tell us they love going to school. It has been difficult at times financially as we work hard to send our children to a private school, but the christian-base values and the growth of their faith, coupled with their excellence in academics is truly, priceless!

My son has been attending BCS for 5 years and will be entering BCS High School in the Fall of 2004. I cannot say enough good things about the schools consistent high morals, strong values, excellent instruction materials and teaching skills that are provided by the entire faculty and staff of BCS. Even though we have grown to approximately 700 students, the quality, morals and values of the school does not change.

We have a preschooler & 1st grader who attend this school. As a parent with a limited religious upbringing, BCS offers a well balanced, educated and caring environment that strives to offer the best opportunity to all children regardless of religious background. I am proud to be a BCS parent !
