Bedford High had a whirlwind of experiences. Some were self-invoked, others were completely out of my control. What I enjoyed most about Bedford High was the faculty. The staff at Bedford High are well trained and extremely patient --or try to be as patient to the best of their abilities. The student body is slightly deterring because of their behavior. If I could change anything about Bedford High, it would be the facility's central building, since it lacks air conditioning.
The school needs to put more into the instrumental music program and also the advanced students. There are several times when I am bored with the classes I take. I am in advanced placement, but other classes are not challenging enough. I would like to see new instruments for students.
