Its A GOOD SCHOOL.. You Just Have Those Few Who Will Mess It Up For Everybody And Make It Look Bad For Everyone. But i Love TECH. Wish They Would Go Back To The Old Tech. When You Had To Take A Test to Get In And Have A 2.0 Or Better. :)

I am currently in my senior year at Tech and I think it is a great school. They offer a lot of different classes and programs to students that can lead to a better future. The different academies make it easy to learn the intended trades. As with many other schools there are fights, and not all students go their for the intended purpose. No school goes without gang violence or fights, or any other interruptions of the sort for that matter. I also believe that the media portrays the school as worse then it really is. There are students, like myself that are able to get a good quality education regardless of what else goes on. The media should be just as quick to come with cameras and look at all the positive things us students are doing instead of only focusing on the negative aspects that are expected in an MPS high school.

Just shameful. They donate a beautiful building and receive a school full of thugs that want to spend the day looking for fights. What a joke! They need a Lean on me moment when crazy Joe kicks out all the bad apples and allows all the kids who want to study a trade to actually pursue that trade.

Bradley Tech is a great school. I am currently going into my third year as a junior there. I have been going there all my high school years. Even though it has fights and some problems, it is still overall a great school that can take you very far in life. Every school has fights and problems, but not every school offers the same things Tech does. Mr. Kupka and the rest of the staff are doing a great job. The only thing I don't like is it feels like I'm back a year because everything I learned in my freshman year I learned in middle school. A lot of my middle school graduates said they took the same classes I took my sophomore year their freshman year and the classes I'm taking this year they took their sophomore year. They need to challenge us with new things.

i am a 2009 graduate of bradley Tech may i say well done to the teachers and new principal for making bradley tech how it is today. i predict in the next 2 years Tech will be the best in milwaukee. I would also like to say that i wish it turns into a specialty school for the students who wish to become a Trades worker.

I am fortunate for going to this school because I now make a living welding, which I learned while attending. Academically, it was unsatisfactory. I went to Menomonee Falls for Middle school, and I spent my four years at Tech re-learning everything I learned in Menomonee Falls. Send your children here if you want them working in a factory for the rest of their life.

About this school

Lynde and Harry Bradley Technology and Trade School (Bradley Tech) is unique in the Milwaukee Public Schools in a number of ways. Its programs empower students to meet state and national standards in trade, technical, academic, and employability skills. It is strategically located one mile south of downtown Milwaukee and currently enrolls 1,300 students. In 2005-06, Bradley Tech began a partnership with the Institute for Research and Reform in Education (IRRE) to implement the First Things First Framework within the comprehensive high school. This reform has given Bradley Tech an opportunity to embrace Small Learning Communities, Instructional Improvement, and a Family Advocacy System. The goal of this new initiative is to raise the academic performance of all students at Bradley Tech and Trade to levels required for post-secondary education and high-quality employment without remediation. To nurture student learning and support student development in a more personal environment, Bradley Tech is divided into four Small Learning Communities (SLCs): Pieper Power Academy of Construction, Rockwell Automation Academy of Advanced Engineering and Technology, AT&T Academy of Communication, and Harley-Davidson Academy of Design. Program content in each SLC includes academic curriculum required by the State of Wisconsin, technology curriculum developed from national standards, employability skills adapted from the U.S. Secretary of Labor's commission report identifying the skills young people need to succeed in the world of work, and electives for advancement or enrichment. In each SLC, freshmen explore planning and design, materials and processes, energy and power, and information technology related to their SLC focus. In sophomore, junior, and senior years, students study technology through investigation, problem solving, and application. Lessons are presented in a thematic project-based approach that integrates content and comprehensive literacy. With the Copernican 4 by 4 schedule, students can earn 8 units each year with a possible total of 32 units over 4 years. Students take four classes each quarter and can earn 1/2 a unit in each class. Each academic year consists of four quarters (terms).
