Bedford Public Schools Reviews

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.

I grew up within the Beford school system, much like my parents and plenty of other relatives before me. It has improved greatly over the years, even just between the time my sister and I went to school (nine years apart), and they continue to strive to do even better. I'm definitely satisfied with the education I was given there, and I'm reminded often of how lucky I was to get that education. Though there were sometimes instances of offensive graffiti, the school always addressed every situation with the utmost seriousness.
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.
