Welcome to the Bradley County Schools Website!
It is my pleasure to greet you on behalf of the Bradley County Board of Education and the many wonderful teachers, administrators, and support personnel in our system. It is our goal to provide the very best educational opportunities and experiences for our students. We work every day to be a welcoming center of educational excellence with a determined focus on the development of every student. In an atmosphere of mutual respect and high expectations, we teach our students the skills and knowledge they need in the 21st Century to be lifelong learners and productive citizens.
Bradley County Schools, as nearly every school district in Tennessee, fully implemented the new official state standards in school year 2013-2014. Our TCAP scores in grades 3-8 reading/language arts have remained steady over the past three years and remain above the state average. We have made steady gains in STEM subjects, specifically science and math. District-level TVAAS Composites are scores that assess growth at the district level. These scores are comprised of testing results for SAT 10 (grades K-2), TCAP (grades 3-8), and EOC (grades 9-12). The 3-year trend shows that Bradley County District-level Composite is a level 5. A score of “5” is the most effective where students are making substantially more progress than the Standard for Academic Growth. Our teachers are very dedicated to the students of Bradley County and work hard to help each child become College and Career Ready. I am proud of our teachers. For most educators, teaching is not a job, it is a calling. Our teachers are committed to our students and their families.
Bradley County Schools serves over 10,500 students in 17 schools – 11 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, 2 high schools, an alternative school and a virtual school. Bradley County Virtual School opened in 2012 as an online public school choice for residents of Bradley County using 21st century technology to meet the education needs of students for whom the traditional classroom is not appropriate. Adult students are served through the Bradley/Polk Adult Education Center. Information about the schools can be found at the “schools link” on the home page.
Our school system has received the Tennessee Center for Performing Excellence Commitment Award and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools District Accreditation. These achievements are not easy to accomplish and speak to the hard work and dedication of our great teachers, administrators, and support staff. Bradley County Schools is ranked among the top in Tennessee and continues to be a truly great school system.
