Schools have existed in Bradley County since its inception. Public schools have been in existence in Bradley County since at least 1871, and the name "Bradley County Schools" has been used for the district since at least the 1880s.[2] The first reported superintendent was M.R. Burke, elected in 1885.[2] The first public high schools in the county were Charleston High School in Charleston, opened in 1913, and Central High School in Cleveland, opened in 1916.[2] Central High School was renamed Bradley County High School in 1920 and Bradley Central High School in 1948.[3] Bradley Central was originally located at the current site of Ocoee Middle School, but was moved to its current location in 1972.[2][3] Charleston High School was replaced with Walker Valley High School in 2001.[4]
