My son went to half day kindergarten and is now in first grade. I researched schools in the area in great depths, and thankfully decided on Bradford. I was set on sending my son to a charter school, private school or Dennison, but when we didn't make the lottery, I started looking into the public schools in the area. I am so happy that we decided on Bradford. It is in a beautiful location and I can't see how the quality of education could be any better at a private or charter school. My son is a smart little dude, and I feel like they pay close attention to grouping and challenging all the kids no matter what level they test into. At the end of Kindergarten, a majority of his class was reading at a 1st grade to end of first grade level. Very impressive. Bradford actually ranks higher than Dennison these days. We have had a great experience so far. The teachers have been more than awesome and the principle, Mr. Lewis, is fantastic. Parents are completely involved and most everyone I have met has been extremely friendly. We feel very lucky to be able to go to this school.

I had 2 children attend this school for 1st and 2nd grade. I was very happy with the education, the teachers went the extra mile to make sure each student was challenged to the max of their abilities. We had one incident where child was bullied by an older kid that was visiting from a different campus. The pricipal, Mr. Lewis, responded immediately and demonstrated that the school has "no tolerance" for bully behavior. He took the incident very seriously, and I was very happy with the way he handled everything. All in all, I was very pleased with this school. Only area that could use improvement is security. Once school is out, the kids either line up in appropriate bus line, or are free to just walk off campus, or get into any car they like. (There is no matching of kids with the appropriate car/parent).

Other than kids being kids, and being a little abusive -- this school is great. The teachers are very good, and the principle is the best.

My Son has been going to Bradford Primary for 3 years now. The level of education he is getting is wonderful and the teachers always go the extra mile for ALL students. They are attentive to students' needs and make a great effort in keeping parents 'in the loop' with what is going on. I wish every chid could have a school like this one - it is the greatest!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
