I am not impressed with the Special Needs program AT All. There seems to be only a few assistants and only 2 teachers who actually know how to teach a student and work with a student with Autism. They do not use strengths like music, drama, art, yoga. Its a terrible school for an EC program which teaches students on the spectrum in AU classes. The ec staff does not get along. I only gave them 2 stars for the 2 teachers and few assistants who know how to work with Autistic students. Terrible school for Autistic students who require more attention to stay on task through out the day. Will be moving hopefully to a better education for my child over the summer.

I agree with u to the parent who just posted yesterday on the bullying and teachers with no patience! I have lots of parents there that have kids who want to go further with the same problems ! Maybe we need to meet ;) get with higher up to improve this at the school!!

This is the worst experience I have had with a school. My son I will admit is a talker but I have seen by visiting there is no control in these classrooms. Teachers have no patience and they loving kicking kids out of class and the bullying is out of control. The principle will call you all day about your child but if someone is doing something to your child it is not taken care of at all. I am looking for a new school asap CMS this is a total disappointment. I really thinking about talking again to some of the other parents again and going a step further to talk to the board about getting action

Bradley's new principal is a wonderful addition. He keeps parents informed weekly and makes himself available to parents. He also makes sure he is visible to students and staff. I have both my sons at Bradley and can not say enough about the majority of the staff. The Honors classes are challenging and staff works to prepare the students for the future. I also appreciate how they give students the opportunity to give back to their community.

Buyer beware. CMS is ripe with bullying issues. My daughter was relentlessly bullied in this school. The principal was absolutely worthless in dealing with the issues. She delegated all of the discipline issues to the assistant principal. Academically, my daughter suffered as the class sizes are too large. Hard to learn when you are in the back of the room and the teachers have no control over the classroom. Thank goodness we moved so we are out of the complete failure of an educational environment.

My rising 8th grader has enjoyed his time at Bradley. The honor classes he is enrolled in are good and he likes his teachers. My younger children look forward to attending because of all they have heard from their older brother. It has been a very positive experience all around! Hats off to the staff for making students feel welcome, creating a great learning environment and getting parents involved.

I'm a student at bradley and i hav bad and good things to say about the school. First well the food sucks bad and the teacher don't really teach they tell you to do something and expect you to finsh it by the end of class. One good thing is that my social has improved with all the fun classes.

Every year, teachers seem to be worse than the year before! Teachers are not held accountable for grades/homework. It is hard to get information from the teachers. They are disbursed on a regular basis with no academic learning during these times. My child is in their 3rd year there and I won't ever have my younger children attend Bradley.

I can't say one positive thing a/b Bradley. My daughters grades have dropped drastically. She hasn't had a science or math teacher for about 80% of this school year. No one call tell me why the students are dispersed. The day before the 7th grade class trip they couldn't give me any details on the who my childs chaperone was, a contact number, an itinerary for the trip, what group she was in or what bus. I was told we would be told when we dropped her off the following morning at 5:00 AM. I don't know about you but I don't feel very comfortable sending my 12 year old off to who knows where w/ some person I do not know. By the way, the principal was suppose to call me regarding all these items. I am still waiting on that call & the trip has come and gone.

'Busing' priority used by school district and an agenda driven curriculum, handicaps the potential. Many students in school 'zone' go to other schools when opportunities present.

My son is in 8th grade. Overall I feel Bradley is a good school. My main issue has been the lack of challenges and expectations from some teachers (mainly Honors Language). Both his teachers last year and this year do not assign quality work and do not require them to even write in cursive. I feel they are not properly preparing the students for high school). I think the Teachers do a great job keeping up with parent assistant website, regarding the students grades, but their personal websites are hardly updated with upcoming assignments.

After reading the reviews i am wondering if this is the same school that my son attends. The lack of the communication at this school is my biggest concern. I have had issue after issue with the administration. My son is an average student with no disciplinary problems. Several of the teachers/coaches/principals at this school have little or no respect for students or parents. It is unacceptable for students to be disrespectful to teachers but acceptable for students to be disrespected. The 8th grade principal Mrs. Bryce speaks to you like you are beneath her. The smallest things at this school become issues while the important things are left out. I have two other children in elementary school who are zoned to attend Bradley. I won't make the same mistake twice, we will be moving before i go through this again.

As a parent of one child that has gone through Bradley and another that is currently enrolled I can with no hesitation recommend this school. each of my children has faced different challenges at different times and despite having different learning styles and social skills, both got what they needed here. The team teaching approach, teachers that are motivated and care and outstanding programs and clubs make this school exceptional. We like it much better than the middle school my son attended in Massachusetts in a very upscale town with a supposedly excellent school system. We couldn't be happier.

Though I liked my son s 6th grade team better, I felt they were better teachers. My son is in the 7th grade now I still feel they are doing a great job just not as attentive. I have nothing but praise for this school. Teachers are really approachable. Assistant principles are really responsive. Extra curricular activities are fun as well as add to the learning experience. I would recommend this school.

After my child attended another school her 6th grade year. Then attending Bradley her 7th grade year it was like a sigh of relief. It has really challenged my child on every level.

The communication from the teachers is amazing! They email me constantly with updates on how my son is doing and what he needs to work on, if anything. However, try to call the office and noone answers the phone! Or you get a busy signal. Calling right now and the phone has rang more than 30 times with no pick up. Glad it isnt an emergency! Very disappointing!

My son attended Bradley for his three middle school years. He has a learning disability and both the administrators and staff worked with me to make him successful. I did have to take the initiative on several occasions to request a special meeting and at one point had to get the downtown office involved, but once they saw that I took my son's education seriously they cooperated in making sure his IEP was followed. My daughter now attends there, and although the school is overcrowed and has upwards of 20 trailers on site, they seem to have little disipline problems.
