Bradford Elementary is nestled in the heart of the Lower East Side across from Bradford Park and within walking distance to the Patrick A. Lucero Library. Our dedicated staff strives to provide a positive and high-quality learning experience for every Bradford student. Our curriculum has a strong academic emphasis in language arts, math, social studies, and science in addition to P.E., art, music, and integrated computer science skills.

    We will continue our school’s mission to prepare every student with the knowledge, skills, and character traits necessary to “be the change” in our Pueblo community and beyond. We will fulfill our school vision by creating a culture of learning that promotes academic improvement, social and emotional growth, and confident leaders.
