Everything is nice and all at Bedford, but for a while I was curious as to why I felt a little isolated from my classmates and peers, until I started asking people around. Communication in school is really bad, so its hard to find out when a certain event is happening unless a club is behind it, and the school page doesn't really update their school calendar so I barely know when I have no school. In addition, there's no community. One of my friends said the only day everyone cares about community is on Community Day, literally.

Bedford Schools has its ups and downs. Sports are not very good but every team is a tight knit family, and clubs aren’t that prominent. Academics are amazing and 9/10 times every student will end up with a very good teacher. Bedford is competitive, but that just motivates me to do well.
In Bedford high school I really liked how much the teachers tried to help you throughout all four years however the guidance department needs help on helping students with college. I want to go to a 2 year school however they really tried to make me go to a 4 year school, I believe they wanted me to do this so they look better on paper.
