I have two daughters in 5th and 8 th grade at Bradford. For my 8th grader I hav'nt seen any of her graded assignments from any of her classes.Will she survive in 9th grade what have Bradford really thought her in 8th grade.she let me know that she's not learning anything. My 5th grader is smart and bored. not challenging enough.
My son started with Bradford Academy when they first opened in the Kindergarten class. The academic programs are very good, and the teachers provide excellent instruction and guidance to the students for class assignments, study habits, behaviour and personal responsibility. The MEAP scores do not represent the excellent educational system at Bradford. The school has grown by hundreds and they do not turn anyone away. These scores, unfortunately, are a representation of what children did not learn from their prior schools and why parents moved their children to Bradford. I am confident that our Principle, Mr. Borowski, will assist the teachers in helping each student and this will show in our MEAP scores in the next coming years. As with all great things there are down sides. We need to increase our parent involvement with the PTA, and most of all becoming a part of their child academic life.
This school has been a big disappointment. In October my neice witnessed a fight which resulted to a few days off from school for the children. My son is in the third grade and have not started learning multiplication yet. We will not be returning to Bradford next year.
I love this school, the principals, the administrative staff are all wonderful and caring people. There is a feeling of 'we care' when you walk into the front doors. It's up to date technology wise as well as it staffs qualified people to do the job of educating our youth. This is my son's first year in Kinder and although he came from a very good school this school challenges and pushes him to be his best. The homework is plentiful but very appropriate. He has learned so much about letters and writing and counting since the year started that it amazes me. He's always talking about what letters words start with and then making whatever sound the letter makes. It has been a joy to see him move forward and with such grace that his natural abilities shine through. Thanks to Ms. Lance and her support staff Ms. Heath!
This school is exceptional! It is obvious that the school puts children first and will work to see every child be successful. The new facility is packed with technological tools to aid student learning and to make the best use of the teachers' time so they can spend as much time with the children as possible. I can wholeheartedly recommend this school without reservation. There aren't many charter schools you can say that about!
