When the school can take better control of the unruly students and stop the bullying it will be a better school.

I am a former employee of this school and I loved the students and faculty. However, the district leadership is unqualified and out of touch with what it really takes to inspire and motivate high school students. It's a shame that such incompetence can influence one school - the community deserves better. Avoid sending your children here if you want any kind of education supported by more than dedicated teachers. The district leaders are worried more about their own hand-shaking and inflated image than they are the students who attend their schools.

Well, i am a student at Bradford High right now. I am about to be a sophomore, i would really have to say that this is a, not necessarily 'bad' school but it's just a school with a lot of unmotivated student's and also teachers! I would have to say i had one teacher that actually cared how i was doing my work and how far i want to get in life with my goals. That's not very good, and i'm pretty much stuck here till the end. But i will still try my very best to carry out my goals here and stick it out till the end. I will be in student government next school year, and i will be surely be trying to get at least two magnet programs going here and hopefully a gifted program for the school!

I graduated from BHS in 1991. I had a great experience. My children went there. If teachers did not have to deal with children that choose to be disruptive and not want to learn, maybe BHS would have a better rating. Disruptive and kids that are 2 and 3 years behind just need to stay home, they don't want to learn anyway. A teacher can only do so much.

I taught at BHS for one year and was appalled at the lack of leadership and caring by those in authority. Though there are teachers who care, they are rendered ineffective by policies that promote fear. I pray for the students and teachers that are stuck at BHS. I cannot imagine any high school with a worse learning environment.

Their is a lack of influential teachers, and most importantly the school dosen't really motivate and push forward students to do their best daily. Their is a surplus of 'laxidasical' teachers and stff permitted on campus! Everyone wants the students to do well but obviously, their effort isn't paying off! Bradford is a D school and is surely NOT representing themselves professionaly.

I went to school there and graduated a 2 years ago, it was not a great school at all. I wanted to go to keystone heights high school because there they had IB and Prep classes. I didn't learn anything at BHS, it was a joke. I dual enrolled at Santa Fe College my junior year and thats where I actually learned the material I needed for college. The some teachers tried to prepare the students for college others just gave out worksheets to do, every day! If you go there, make sure to dual enroll at santa fe, it's free and counts toward college credits and high school credits!

I taught at Bradford High for a short time and I would say it is not a bad school. The teachers that I interacted with closely all seemed to be very interested in student learning. However, students did not seem that motivated to learn as they were not gearing themselves for a college education. Parents could do a lot in helping to motivate their own children.

I transferred to Bradford from Keystone in October and the only reason why i like Bradford more is the fact that it is so much more laid back and they don't care. Where as Keystone you couldn't do the littlest thing without being punished. Bradford needs to realize the less they punish the more bad things that will happen. Also they need to focus more on the facilities and the student needs when it comes to the bathrooms and learning environment.

I believe that this school is not a bad school but a shcool with many problems that could be found at any other school. The difference with bradford is the way they handle their problems. The fact is, they don't. When faced with a problem they choose the easiest way that sheds minimum bad publicy on them. They believe that they 'solved' the problem but all they are doing is causing a more hostal environment not only for the students but also everyone who is associated with the high school.

Very disfunctional and needs severe improvement. The faculty/administration to student ratio is so streched that everyone runs amuck. Quality and professionlism is low.

think this school is horrible and is in need of a lot of improvement. the students there are not treated equally .I feel the administrator and resource officers are there for a pay check and not for the students, Most student have lost interest because of the way things are handled. It really needs to improve with all students being the #1 priority and not being stereo typed or treated different because administrators not wanting to do there jobs!

I am ashamed to say I spent my entire student career at this pitiful place. it was the most regrettable 14 years of my 21 year life. I feel that the ineptitude of not just the school's staff, but the entire school board and county commissioners, robbed me of hundreds of opportunities. the marked focus on sports and 'school spirit' left Music and the arts out in the cold. students with special needs were mishandled or trampled under the flood of lazy and jaded future-dropouts, and the few good teachers there were.

In the past few years, the environment at this school has deteriorated. Many experienced teachers have retired or moved on to better teaching situations. The school grade last year was a D. As I parent, I give this school an F. It is a good school if your child is a cheerleader or a star ball player or a class clown or bully. Those kids seem to do well. The quiet, shy child is often overlooked. There is little to no recognition for those students who are hard workers in the classroom. Pray hard if your child must attend this school. Choose homeschooling!

To whom may read this, Our school is a okay school. it isnt the best but it isnt the worst. sometimes when things happen at our school, it takes a very long time for the staff to do anything about it and if they do the punishment isnt good enough. other than that we do have a pretty good school. sincerly diane flowers

Starke is a county school that does not have a lot of money. Therefore it has a hard time keeping teachers in the district due to low pay. Many teachers there are quite good though especially under the circumstances. Principal Wendell has made great improvements in the school since he came.

For the 2005-06 year, there is not an AP calculus class. It has been cancelled for lack of enough students. There is still AP chemistry. There is alot that can be done to improve BHS, but overall it is as good as small town schools are going to be. Your child can come out of the school with a good education if they are willing to be motivated to try and seek the better path.

This school has great teachers but not a great selection of classes. It has honor courses, but doesn't have AP courses. There is a diverse crowd of students which can be good or bad. Bradford High has an incredible amount of school spirit and student involvement. There is a vast number of extracurricular activities. But, there has also been a problem with drugs at the school. Overall, this is a good choice for a school if you son or daughter has good judgement in picking friends and wants to be challenged with some of the best teachers.
