    Bradford Elementary School is a fantastic school! The staff from the principal on down does such a fantastic job collaborating with the students and their families. There is such a willingness to help students find their place at this school. They have great afterschool and summer programs. I would recommend this school to everybody! Thank you Bradford Elementary for caring so much for your students and their families. You are doing an excellent job educating and socializing our youth.

    This school is not the ideal choice for a clean good education.My time here is almost up so I felt needed to voice my opinion.Some teachers can't help you for your life while some are great.The problem for 4th and 5th grade is how the kids can be very crude.This is a HUUUUUUUUUUGE problem.Bradford L is also not strict whatsoever. There has been almost no consequences in the time I've been there try to avoid Bradford Elementary school.

    Bradford Elementary School is run by an excellent principal and vice principal. The teachers and staff are dedicated to educating and doing what is best for each individual student and many parents are involved in school activities.

    Bradford Elementary is such a wonderful place. The staff is excellent and there are so many activities offered for the older children in the school. Some of the teachers are so dedicated outside of school hours - you will see these teachers at all school events volunteering their time for the good of the kids. My children had terrific experiences with many of the teachers in third fourth and most recently especially in fifth grade (a very dedicated teacher there!)... Many parents have pulled their children from this school because of the bad reputation of the district ... don't do it. Once your child attends here you will understand why!

    My Daughter started 3rd grade @ Bradford Elem. The teachers principal mentors all that makes this school a whole are terrific. Very involved in each student's interest and parent/teacher communication cannot compare to any other school.
