Braddock Elementary School has improved since the new Principal came along. She has high expectations and is always very attentive to the parents. I have 3 children, all of them have studied at Braddock and this is the first year that I feel my children matter to the school. The parent liaison, Ms. Lake helped me get health insurance for my son and I'm forever grateful to her. My son's teacher is amazing and I am happy. Thank you

Braddock Elementary School has really come a long way in the past year or two. I will admit that based on previous school ratings (test-scores) and limited opinions online, I was nervous to enroll my children. However, I have enrolled both my kids and have had nothing but positive experiences. I have been so pleased with the level of learning- the variety and depth of special programs and the overall sense of community that we have experienced at Braddock. I have nothing by wonderful things to say about each of the teachers my children have had, and especially of the administration. There was a large turn-over of staff at the school as the new principal stepped in- leading to what I see this year as a cohesive, directed and focused team of teachers. I am so proud of Braddock Elem. and all that my children have gained so far!
