Bradley Elementary School

  • Bradley Elementary photoThe Bradley School provides a safe, motivating, and inquiry-driven learning environment with high expectations for all students. Students at the Bradley School have a minimum of 5 enrichment courses every week. In grades 4-6, all students take a foreign language.

    Educators, administrators, families, and the community work collaboratively to establish a nurturing and inclusive environment where students become courageous and confident citizens. We hold monthly Coffee with the Principal and School Family Council Meetings. We work with the following community partners--Community Music Center of Boston (CMCB), Boston Ballet, e, Inc., Harvard University, Reeboks BOKS before-school program, and POLY from MIT.

    We have a Student Support Team to address any issues or concerns our staff may have about a student’s performance or behavior. We also offer the BOKS before-school fitness program two days per week, funded by a three-year grant from Reebok. There are several academic and recreational programs available in the East Boston area for students to attend after school.
