Message from Mr. Kohl, Principal Bradley Central Middle School:

As the educational leader of Bradley Central Middle School, I am committed to providing the enthusiasm and motivation for an educational environment that is caring, safe, and structured.  My vision is to inspire, guide, assist, and support our school community to work together to develop and provide high standards and quality education. 

Being devoted to this statement confirms my belief that all children can develop to their greatest potential at Bradley Central Middle School.  Working together, we will ensure that every student leaves eighth grade with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in a rigorous high school curriculum.  We encourage our students to challenge themselves and get involved in many of the excellent extra curricular activities that we offer.

Middle school is a time of change.  The workload and social adjustments are greater than at elementary school.  Middle school students are encompassing both more freedom and more responsibility.  At the same time, they are undergoing tremendous emotional, social, and physical changes.  Students will have the opportunity to experience new friends, teachers, and academic challenges.

My goal is to make all students at Bradley Central have a successful and enriching experience. My office has an open door policy; I encourage you to email, call, or stop by with questions comments or concerns on how to make Bradley Central become a better place. With your participation and support, your child will embark on a journey of academic and personal success during his/her three years at Bradley Central Middle School.

Check our website frequently, as it will be updated regularly with timely and important information. Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to partnering with you in your student’s education.
