Bedford High School Reviews
BHS really sets you up to succeed. It offers many AP, IB, and Honors courses that are both intriguing and challenging. The majority of teachers here are great! They are very passionate about helping their students and are approachable. The school is a little crowded now, though, which is a problem. The clubs at BHS also give students so many opportunities to explore their interests. Unfortunately, BHS is arguably less focused on STEM than many other schools nearby, but they are definitely making an effort to change this. For example, they just added 2 new computer science courses (the AP ones)!
My experience at Bedford High School has been amazing. They’ve given me the ability to have a voice. I found myself in the mist of Bedford High School because there were opportunities for me to sing in classrooms, during sport events, and even in the cafeterias during lunch. I’ve had several opportunities from people who’ve scouted me at Bedford High School for singing competitions in different cities and out of state. I met my guitarist at Bedford High School who’s actually a teacher! We met through students informing the teacher that I could sing and when we met, we musically clicked, along with other staff members supporting me, it gave me a reason to believe in myself. I couldn’t have gotten where I am today without Bedford staff making impossible things possible. As of today, I’m in the process of releasing my first album and Bedford High School welcomes me in open arms to come back and perform. Bedford High School is not only a High School but a family.
All around this is a good school, but nothing is perfect here on Earth. Any school you go to will have its pros and cons. That being said, my experience at Bedford High was great, with only a few roadblocks. I became a part time student after being full-time for the first 2 years, so I had a different experience than most of my peers, which is something to consider. I give an A+ to all of my AMAZING TEACHERS as they were the BEST part of high school! Such kind people who want the best for you and work doggone hard! I wasn't so much into the social aspects and tended to spend more time away from my peers except for a small group of friends. I didn't want to associate myself with the stereotypical "Bedford teens" and instead wanted to surround myself with those who were willing to be real and down to Earth with me. The school itself needs to be more OPEN-MINDED about what success means for each individual and should focus LESS on academic and athletic public image.
