Northern Bedford County School District Reviews

Northern Bedford is an outstanding, superb school in not only activities but also all other aspects. I am involved in many extra curricular activities at NBC and the coaches, teachers, and administrative are very supportive and helpful to all of the student athletes. Northern Bedford along with encouraging sports also sports school involvement and academics. The teachers are understanding and they all help their students to improve and take initiative for not only school but the future. I feel confident to succeed in life due to the important skills that NBC has granted me with such as responsibility, initiative, and confidence. Overall, Northern Bedford is an excellent school and I would not change a thing.

The best part about NBC is the relationships that are made there. As a class of only 54, each person held a special place in my heart and walking around the halls seeing familiar faces was calming to a stressful day. The community surrounding my school was also a huge positive. Everyone cares about your well-being. Everyone is a family. My school showed such support for the arts which I am very thankful for. The board allowed us to perform a musical every other year and that was one of the best experiences of my life. Many would say the same. I would like to thank NBC for providing me a happy yet challenging high school career.
Northern Bedford County School District is a school in a tight knit community. The teachers are all extremely dedicated to preparing their students for life after graduation. The education, however is subpar. The school is teaching at a lower level than many other public schools and does not offer the variety of classes needed to make students stand out when applying to universities. Lack of funding contributes to this issue, but so does inability to change. The school district's failure to change with the times and strict "this is how it has always been done" mentality is beginning to take a toll on the students and prevent them from reaching their highest potential.
