    My son switched schools in the middle of kindergarten. He loves it here and has learned so much. He is very shy but has adjusted very well and the teachers are very helpful in understanding his needs.

    Student to teacher ratio in kindergarten is above 20 to 1. Bullying seems to be an issue with a class size so large. Unfortunately it was brought up to me by my child and not the teacher after the teacher had witnessed the incident.It is also unevenly distributed with the majority of the class being boys. Child academic expectation are much lower in comparison to other Connecticut districts. During open house teacher stated they expected children to know numbers 1- 30; and had not yet chosen 2013-2014 mathbook of choice for the class. Although the school has a new principal I do expect positive more changes and the the environment and curriculum already in place.

    The staff and help at Bradley School is great! I love the fact that they have a no tolerance policy. If you have a situation or problem they fix it right away. I love the fact that they have full day kindergarten...she learned so much in that year. It has helped her move on in a much faster pace. I also love their PTA group...they work so hard to provide many fun things for our children. So in a nut shell...Bradely School is the best! )

    This is a good school with a great principal and super PTA. The superintendent and principal are working really hard to improve the academic programs. They also have started many after school enrichment programs. My kids love it there!

    Great School with a wonderful and caring principal! Always striving to make improvements and grow stronger. The PTA is super! Wish the kids could have more gym time but working on it.
