Public school in Bradley in the 1840's-60's?

Classification: Query
I was wondering if there was a public school for the children of Bradley from approx. 1840 on? I'm researching for a novel set here. My main character would have been school aged during this time, but I haven't been able to find any schools online.
The main character is based on one of my great-grandfathers, (and thanks to Ancestry.com, I have been able to find out a lot of information!)
I do know that his mother couldn't read or write, but that he could. I have found letters he has written, and he wrote beautifully. I'm not sure if he was self-taught, or learned in school. He knew how to write when he served in the army during the Civil War...
Thanks for any insight!
