Dear Bradley Central Parents and Community,


As the new principal of Bradley Central, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year in Bear Nation.  I hope that your summer has been filled with fun family activities. It is amazing how quickly summer concludes and our thoughts turn to the preparation of a new school year. I am beyond excited to begin my first year as your principal. As a “lifelong” Bear, I am both humbled and honored to be able to serve students in this role. I have always loved the excitement that each new school year brings and this year is no different. I am thrilled to be part of a team comprised of teachers, staff, parents and students who have high expectations and want to achieve great things!  It is our mission to help every child feel welcome, safe, connected and part of the Bradley Central Family. Additionally, we will strive to challenge each student to grow in his/her academic abilities and to be college and/or career ready at the end of their four years at BCHS. 

Your partnership and support are key elements to ensuring that we are able to maximize each student’s educational and personal development. We encourage a positive home and school relationship based on the mutual goal of providing the best learning experience possible for all of our students. The following items are my focus of priority for the 2019-2020 school year: 


  1. Accountability
  2. Attendance
  3. ACT 
  4. Graduation Rate
  5. Producing Ready Graduates

We hope that you will visit our website to stay up to date with all events and other information pertaining to Bradley Central. Additionally, we have a Twitter account (@BradleyCentral) that we will use to send out updates and quick announcements as we go throughout the school year. 


I am honored to serve as the principal of Bradley Central High School. It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, students, teachers, and local industry strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please feel free to contact me at 423. 476-0650 or pspangler@bradleyschools.org.


Once again, welcome back! Let’s make this the best year yet at BCHS. 


God Bless and Go Bears,


Spangler Signature
