I have attended Bradford Academy High School for four years now, this is my senior year. I've also attended Bradford Academy's middle school for two years. Bradford Academy High School is a great School when it comes to meeting friends and learning how to become an adult, but unfortunately the school does not help with college readiness. Basic college guidance and counseling for juniors and seniors aren't given to the students until the very last minute. Most students, like myself, have taken things into our own hands without any knowledge about college. If there was something I could change about Bradford Academy, it would most definitely be the involvement of staff helping students with college.

The good thing about Bradford is they have a lot of prep rallies and assembly schedules. The bad things are the teachers, the food, clubs and activities. The teachers don’t show the students that they care about us. The food is not good nor is it healthy. They don’t allow students to sell anything so a lot of people go through the school day hungry. There are fights at least one a week. Bradford overall is not a good school
Bradford Academy my freshman year was the best. As I became a sophomore it started to crumble. Teachers were leaving, lessons were not being taught. My junior year is absolutely HORRIBLE. I the first trimester I had a sub for math and science class which are core subjects for three months. Not to mention there were more fights this year since I have been going here in 9th grade
