    Overall Experience: Bradwell institute is one of the worse schools I have attended they are more focused on dress code than education the graduation rate is drooping you have kids failing back to back then just dropping out kids getting sent to alternative schools for no reason they are more focused on dress code than education and the security of the students that don't see the issues it's clear who the kids have problems and when they fight so quick to expel them when if they would have directed thier attention else where besides untucked shirts then it wouldn't be as bad

    Overall Experience: I love my school, but it's like as if the students are always wrong and they are more on the teachers side rather than listening out to both sides and understanding both sides maybe not just trying to defend the teachers.

    Overall Experience: My overall experience was alright. My best experience here was when I got my class ring, it just stood for what I have been working for since 9th and thats to graduate.

    Overall Experience: There are many things I wish that could have been improved while attending this school, like how unnecessarily strict they were on dress code and the lack of money they had in the fine arts department, but over all, I did have a decent time there. Yes, it may not be the best school in the world, but it is a good school to get your education and graduate. Things could be a lot worse than they were, so I am grateful for what I at least had.
