I absolutely love Bedford County Public Schools. The environment is great. The second I walk into school I have a big smile on my face because I know it's going to be a great day! The administration is kind and understanding and keep the kids safe. The teachers are very knowledgeable and have gotten me very ready for college. I feel as though I can really be myself within the walls of my school.

I have attended Bedford County Public Schools all of my life. I believe there are pros and cons to every school, but here-- the pros outweigh the cons with out a doubt. What ever trouble's you may be struggling with, they will do their very best to try to solve it!
I am so truly blessed to have been able to grow up in such a tight nit community- based school system.
The teachers in the Bedford County school system are helpful, engaging and interested in helping students discover their interests and thrive in a classroom environment so long as the student puts forth his/her best effort. There is a wide range of diversity at all of the school systems, with a little bit of every ethnicity, race, religion and sex, giving everyone the ability to find people of similar backgrounds/ interest. The arts program in the Bedford County school system is phenomenal, and helps enrich the lives of all those involved, whether as budding artists/musicians or talented performers, the arts programs in Bedford county will help you foster a love for beauty through design. The facilities are in the process of being improved, with some buildings being state of the art new and others many decades of age and in need of repair.
