I came into Bedford High School in the middle of the school year from another state and was immediately welcomed with open arms! I was able to get plugged in very quickly with the musical that year, which made it much easier to get involved and make friends. The environment was safe and supportive throughout my time there and the faculty was more than kind and super accessible! Thank you, Bedford High School, for being the solid educational platform that I was able to jump to college from!

I spent 3 years at Bedford starting from eighth grade. I spent two years at Bedford High School. I liked the environment and surroundings at Bedford High. The people and teachers are friendly and help you fit in effortlessly. I believe my time at Bedford High was memorable for me as I had just moved from out of the country and was happy to move to such a nice school district. Overall Bedford High school is great and has outstanding teachers!
I really like the school! The teachers are really nice and the different levels of academics push you. The food is horrible! I have transitioned well during my freshman year, but many others are struggling with the workload.
