    Our son has high-functioning Asperger's with an average to above average IQ. School has always been a struggle due to his learning differences however he enrolled an intensive 6-week summer World History class designed to satisfy his Freshman Social Studies credit . We were concerned how would he would adapt to a newer larger group of peers and school? Would the teachers respect his learning style? Would they view us as "helicopter(s) parents" when/if we had to communicate any issues? Would both his teachers and peers understand his lack of social skills? Realize that he would rather appear to "keep up" than to call attention to himself and ask questions? We found the staff to be compassionate caring and respectful and we could not have asked for a better experience for our son. He also attended summer band camp the group of 180+ kids and their director welcomed him as "family" right away. They (BBCHS staff and students) GET it and they CELEBRATE what makes our child unique and in turn give back to our son what he needs most the understanding and encouragement to strive to be successful and the HOPE as said to us recently "mom dad I'll finally fit in!"

    I was a member of the BBCHS class of 2006 and recently graduated from Purdue University. It has taken time and only now do I realize how lucky I was to attend Bradley. My experience was not one in which I felt as though I was in an environment consisting of teachers and students but rather a holistic community of people helping people. BB somehow pulls off a small school friendly feeling while also possessing the benefits of encompassing a large population. At 2 000+ the individual is somehow never lost in the clutter as is the case in many large schools. Not only are the educational options aplenty the extra curriculars are equally outstanding. As my two siblings who are also BB grads will attest I can truly say I beneffited immensely from my years at Bradley. Regardless of your child's background this place will do their potential justice.
