Bradley is the best school I could ever imagine! The advanced (GT) programs are simply stunning, and the teachers there are so supportive. The kids are great (unless of course you look for trouble), and I rarely hear of bullying altercations. The arts department is simply an elite within itself, and the athletics department is very focused on a student's health and athletic ability - not just another class! If you have to choose between Bradley and any other school, CHOOSE BRADLEY!

Simply stunning. I went to Bradley last year and the faculty were helpful and kind. The students are nice and welcoming and great gym and science wing. I ADVICE YOU TO JOIN THEATER ARTS! Mr.Keyes is the best most helpful kind encouraging teacher there is that makes you laugh your socks off while still teaching you about the arts.!!!!

My child is a sixth grader this year at Bradley. We never had issues with grades before this year. I found that when you try to communicate with the teachers, you get no response back. They don't try to speak with you until after your child fails and there is nothing you can do to help.I recommend you watch your child's portal closely to see how they are doing. This is the only way you will know. Out of the 8 teachers my child has and the 5 core subject teachers I have had to deal with, 2 teachers actually initiated communication and worked as a team with me on my child's education. The Principle was brought into it at one point and he had offered no explaination for his teachers. I know a former student from Bradley who agreed that she experienced the same thing when she was a student there and that the teachers favor certain students over others. The teachers are given limits on how many that can fail and how many need A's, B's, etc so they can get their hands on funding from the state. It is a sad situation that it is our children that truly pay in the end.

We have a child in the GT program at Bradley & one child who will be there next year. We love Bradley. Mr. Oxley is a great principal & the teachers are dedicated & hard working. We moved from NISD specifically to this area so our kids could attend these NEISD schools & we are so glad we did.

Bradley has been a great school for my two children. The GT classes are first rate. My 6th grader was disappointed that a lot of kids in her Pre AP math class were not there to learn, but I think that will improve as some of the less interested kids opt out of the Pre AP program. The music programs--Band, Orchestra and girls Choir-- are exceptional, and the Athletics program is also quite good and engenders a lot of school spirit. Recent budgetary issues have impacted Bradley in is team program and the GT program, but this type of issue is being faced by most of the public schools.

I am an 8th grade student attending bradley middle school, there are bullies at bradley but what school are there not bullies at? The teachers are some of the best teachers i have had in my life, the admintrators there are great, and i think if you were to complain to them they will do something about it.


Posted January 5, 2012

My child is a straight "A" GT student and was even awarded a "Silver Star" award from Bradley. The teachers are excellent, but the social issues and bulling at this school are horrific. The anxiety my daughter had to go through on a daily basis was not worth it. The administration is no help. They act like the problems don't exist and even went as far as blaming my daughter for the issues. The "mean girls" run rampant and unchecked. The entire administration needs to read "Odd Girl Out".

I am offended by the Feb. 3rd post. "He" would never hit anyone, and that is such a off color remark that I question the motive. Bradley Middle School is a Recognized Campus (on the fence of being Exemplary) and was just named a Texas School to Watch and received National Schools to Watch recognition. The Texas History program with its on site cabin, general store, and museum is a one of a kind. It is a delight to have my child attend Bradley Middle School !

My son started Bradley this year and really likes it. I have found the teachers to be very professional and helpful. It recently was named a Texas" School to Watch" and I think it is one of the better schools in San Antonio and probably in the State. As for the last 2 negative reviews- I'm really sorry that your poorly behaved and failing children did not have a good experience. From my point of view-that's a plus for Bradley !

This school is horrible. The teachers are rude and they don't even bother informing the parents when a student gets into trouble. I saw the vice principal get into a confrontation with a student and it seemed like he was going to hit him. Your child will be sent to (ISS) In School Suspension and they won't even inform you as a parent. I have spoke with other parents and they feel the same way. Avoid sending your child to this school if possible!

my child went here and the teachers did not help with tutoring much. when I asked for conferences to discuss the failing grades, I was told they don't like to do that. I was glad when I had to move to a different city so my child could get a better education.

I feel that my son had a great three years at Bradley. The teachers were wonderful and if I had any problems they were so nice to help in any way thet could. I really think it is cool that the Vice Principal knows everyones name by heart. If you can remember 1,277 names that goes to show how much he cares. I only have fond memories and feel they really helped my son get ready for high school.

I am a student at Bradley. I am now in 8th grade. I am in GT programs which aren't challenging. My parents most of the time have no clue what's going on at school and it's only when progress reports come home that they know I'm even doing my homework. That is the general mood of the school. Also, the extracurricular classes are second-rate. In 6th grade, I was so full of hope that finally I could take a philosophy class! But no - instead I had to settle for orchestra and Latin. Bradley offers only base extracurriculars. Also, Mr. Peel, our principal, falls dreadfully short of the mark.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
