Bedford High School is a lot of work but overall a good school. Don’t do IB Diploma it’s a waste of time and very few colleges recognize it. Also make good relationships with your teachers if you need help it’s worth it. There are a few that seem like they don’t care but it’s really only in the science department. Keeping working at it and go to extra help when you’re struggling and you’ll be fine!

Academically, BHS has high standards for students and clearly strives to make every person graduate with a higher level of thinking than the average high school student. Bedford definitely prepared me for college in ways that I never would have realized while in high school, resulting in high English proficiency and a very broad spectrum of knowledge as compared with other college students around me. The curriculum was challenging at times which was difficult on top of the college search in Junior and Senior years, but on the whole I believe the challenges will lead me to success in my college years.
Bedford is a good town, with decent values. The school system is highly respected and I've always been impressed with the academics and opportunities offered. My only problem is the lack of support for art and drama students. I personally am not one of those students, but I have seen many of my friends struggle to take the classes they desire, because Bedford gives most of their money to sciences and athletics. The drama department is drowning and art rooms have been changed to chemistry rooms, leaving students less opportunities in the arts.
