Bradley is an awesome high school with student graduation at its very core. The mindset continues to be "A School of Excellence" and has also seen the graduation rate rise to over 90%! The goals set in place to get there are extremely obvious from the start. The freshman academy is a wonderful benefit to the school as the students are considerably more focused in a hall specifically for 9th grade academics. The administration is well noted for going the extra mile in keeping a positive attitude flowing throughout the campus. I have had three children attend Bradley and have seem them prosper with the self confidence and academic skills that were honed at BCHS. I have witnessed a few teachers that were ill prepared for teaching but will also note that they no longer part of Bradley's faculty. Athletics are a very important part of the student life as are dozens of other ways for them to stay involved. The marching band is also a special feature at the school. H-Hall at Bradley has the best vocational programs in the state of Tennessee. Of the three area public high schools, I highly recommend choosing Bradley to attend as the vocational programs are first rate.

All of my children graduated from Bradley with A - B grades. One thing I learned during their time there was that their under standing of situations and happenings at the school were very one sided. Parents must do more than take their students word. They must ask questions of adults and students at Bradley themselves. Don't assume a child has the complete picture.

Overall my children have had pleasant experiences at BCHS. My oldest, who is now at UTK, graduated with Honors and was active in every class as well as sports, clubs, and teacher assisted activites. My youngest however is also at BCHS and doing great. I look for great things for her as well. She is a freshman and making A's and involed in sports and clubs as well. The key is to get your child involved as well as know who they are hanging out with. When you notice grades dropping, call for a meeting before they get out of hand and stay in touch with the teachers and know what is going on.

Bradley was once I place I could be proud of. But for the past ten years, the school has slowly been plummiting. The administration is horrible and the students don't have any fun (mostly because the administration treats them like elementary school students.)

I attended Bradley Central High School all four years of my secondary education and have graduated with my Bachelor's degree within the past year. i am now working on my Master of Arts in Teaching.I found that I was not completely prepared for university life after attending Bradley. I have had to work very hard to get where I am. The lack of high expectations for students abounds. More funding for actual academics would be very beneficial. Extra-curricular activities are nice, and good for building student character, but the academics should be the primary goal of a school. There are some great teachers at Bradley and some not so great teachers there. There needs to be a better academic atmosphere.

Bradley needs to work on getting more qualified and polite freshman councilers. The lack of professionalism is astounding.

Bradley has some awesome teachers and some that are not as skilled. Most are very concerned about the students and most know their subject matter well. Some know their subject matter but cannot explain it on a student's level. Bradley is a school rich in tradition. The leadership is very involved in everything the school undertakes.

My child currently attends this school, and I believe that the recent actions of the administration is unfair to the student populous. The cafeteria now holds a big screen tv and a jukebox is soon to be introduced, yet the rooms are ill ventilated. My daughter wears a short sleeved shirt and a overcoat every day to prepare for the climate of her four classes. BCHS certainly doesn't have it's priorities straight.
