The school has an amazing education and will prepare you for college. The teachers for the most part are really nice and sweet. The issue though is low-level classes tend to be out of control. But the higher level tends to have strong material and independence and are top-notch quality. They also have an amazing amount of resources to help students learn such as iPad, computer lab, green screens. There is a huge issue of cliques because people stay with the same friends they were in 2nd grade.

I cannot live outside of the Bedford school system, I’ve seen how other school are run, and being new to the district I have found bedford schools to have the most caring teachers, students and faculty. I feel prepared for anything I want to do and I have the opportunity to do it at the Bedford school district. The experiences with people and teachers I’ve met at this school have undoubtedly changed the way I think and live
The academics were great, but the lack of school spirit amongst the students made it a place that wasn't a good experience for me. I came in new my sophomore year, and It felt very cliquy and hard to get to know people. There is great potential for it to be a fun community with great resources for clubs and activities, but the students' level of spirit was too low for this to happen. It might have been a better experience if I had been there all four years, but for someone new to come in with previous experience in a different school setting, I found Bedford a bit disappointing. This was just my experience though, there were other new kids who loved it.
