Bradford Intermediate School2

This school gets great scores academically. However, it is located in an affluent area with very invested parents who raise over-achievers. It would be difficult for a principal not to guide this school to great scores. The two stars are because the intermediate (grades 4-6) underachieves in its behavioral expectations. It's ironic that the school administration prides itself on its great scores but doesn't honor the students who achieve them. Rather, it's the top athletes and popular kids who rule the roost and the bookish, kind children who are pushed aside. Even worse, those who bully are not held accountable by the principal. We've seen multiple instances of this. We know families who have left the school, who have stopped using the bus and who have turned to home schooling because their children were bullied at Bradford and the principal didn't manage the situation to avoid recurrence. If you send your child here, he or she will be well educated. However, there's an excellent chance they will be put down or teased by bullies and you won't get anywhere with the principal to stop it.
