I love my teachers and the academic opportunities at Bedford! I think the rigorous course work truly tests students' abilities. I also believe that the vast selection of AP, IB, and Honors courses, and the encouragement to take them, goes a long way in helping kids reach their academic and future goals. Conversely, I think the administration has a lot to work on in the way of communicating with students and acting towards the greater goals of the community.

I really liked the pride in being a bulldog and the acceptance among most students with one another. Bullying is a pretty big issue in the school district itself but I feel like in the high school people learn to know better. I would like to see more help to the average and below average students. The emphasis at this school is only to the students who will make the school look better. Also, more guidance in what classes to choose and what to do for college. There also is a huge miscommunication as to rules and what is going on in the school between the principals, vice principals and teachers. This needs to change!
Bedford High School is very rigorous and good at preparing students for further education. Although many students complain about difficulty, this can often be solved by reaching out to teachers staff members as most are willing to help students achieve the most they can. Parents of students can be difficult to reason with. Overall, the thoroughness of the curriculum and wonderful staff make this school very good.
