As a school teacher myself, I must say, I feel that Bradley Elementary is a model school with amazing teachers who practice extremely effective teaching strategies. My son had attended four different schools in his elementary career, in both DPS and Cherry Creek, and none have proven to offer the quality of teaching, variety of learning experiences, or community involvement that Bradley has. I still have a daughter attending Bradley and only wish that it was a K-8 school so that neither of my children would have to leave there so soon.
This is our last year at Bradley and we have seen how much it's been growing. The entire community is highly involve and participative. I recommend this school so great and friendly.
My children no longer attend Bradley, we were not impressed with the school at all. The biggest issue with the school is overcrowding. Some of the classes have more than 30 students, with aides only part of the day. It was impossible for the teachers to actually teach the children. There were some parents willing to offer support, but they were the minority. I realize with budget cuts all schools are facing obstacles, but wonder why other DPS elementary schools are able to figure this out and keep classrooms at manageable sizes and offer full-time aides. My children learned very little and were exposed to way too much, glad we have found another school.
i think bradley is a great school for children to go to.i just love how all of the teachers are nice and respectful to all the children.
I currently have 2 kids at Bradley. I had one graduate in the 2009-2010 school year. Bradley is a growing, developing school with diversity acacemically as well as student population. The principal and teachers are working hard to develop the whole child. We have music, art, PE and Spanish. There is also a school/community garden and a Youth Farmer's Market in the fall. My kids love gowing to Bradley.
My 9 year old son is a gifted reader. The school has gone out of it's way to push him ahead and along.
This has been my child's first year attending Bradley. So far, it has been OK - there are a few things I don't like - my child only has gym once a week which I don't believe is enough physical activity with the high obesity rate is the USA. My child's class only get one short recess period of about 20 minutes after lunch and that is it. No afteroon recess. The teacher and principal feel this is enough and do not see a problem with it. I am also finding that teachers are not always very approachable and it is reccomended that you schedule a seperate time to speak with a teacher regarding anything. All in all, I have not been that impressed with the staff. My child came from a different school last year where all the staff were very nice and very approachable.
I have had 2 children in ECE at Bradley. The teachers are amazing! They are approachable, interested, and always willing to help in any areas (discipline, academics, social-emotional, etc.) I am upset though, that not ALL students are receiving ALL 'Specials' classes. My belief is that 'Specials' enhance the curriculum, education, and development of students.
I have a little one whos just finished the ECE program at Bradley and couldn't be happier with the school or teachers!
I felt the dwsire of this school to say they had an advanced kindergarten and an IB programme while not paying attention to other aspects of the school that needed attention was a huge downfall.
Our children are encouraged, supported and challenged at Bradley. There is a family oriented and caring atmosphere. The IB program addresses the academic needs of students in the 21st century. There are many opportunities for parental involvement and the staff welcome the chance to work in partnership with parents.
not enough extracurricular things offered. the teaching staff was not always approachable and the academic performance seemed subpar even with the advanced programs added
Both of my children attend Bradley Elementary and it is an excellent school. The teaching staff is incredible. My son went from failing from another school to getting 85 % and 90% at Bradley .
This has been a fabulous school for my daughters. The smaller class sizes and family atmosphere have been perfect for instilling self-confidence as well as quality instruction from the teachers (K-2). The PYP additions of Spanish, Art and Music have made this a well-rounded public school education. I've been very pleased and my daughters love it!
I am a parent of a student at Bradley, and I am constantly amazed and impressed with the quality of the teaching staff. They work together within the building talking to and reinforcing children, both behaviorally and academically. The students are excited to come to school each and every day. There are exciting things happening within the school and the greater community!
In our first year at Bradley, we are very pleased with the school. The IB Programme is outstanding! The staff's support and enthusiasm for this program is impressive. The principal is an excellent leader and very friendly to both adults and students. The overall 'mood' at the school is very positive. The students are wonderful and eager to learn. There are many programs at the school to encourage positive behavior, literacy, and learning in general. The PTA provides many excellent family activities and does not overwhelm parents with non-stop fundraising! Parent involvement is encouraged and welcomed. The school is definitely going in a positive direction. My daughter is extremely happy in her class. The specials classes are excellent and often! Spanish is taught at all grade levels and they learn sign language in that class as well - it is highly effective. I strongly recommend this school to anyone!
IB programme could be good, but test scores actually have gone since implementation
