While I do think the class sizes could have been smaller so that the teachers could have more one-on-one time with their students, the school overall has a very passionate community. There are multiple activities for students to get involved in, and the classes range a variety of different areas. Students can discover new talents that they may never knew they had. With middle school being such a transformative time for young students, Gunning Bedford did a good job of preparing me for the work load that will come in high school, along with new methods of how to take charge of my own education.

I had a poor experience when I attended from 2011-2014. It’s possible things may have changed but it was a poor environment when i was there. The school was dirty and the teachers didn’t seem to care about students education wise or personally. Most teachers were condescending and not uplifting as they should be. Students are still treated as if they’re in elementary school which isn’t preparing them for the leniency of high school or real life.
At Gunning Bedford there are many clubs such as S.T.E.M, Science Olympiad, Math 24 club, B.P.A, student council, drama club, and yearbook committee. There is something for everyone to join, but to join these clubs you must have a GPA of 2.5 in the semester before. Some of the most popular clubs are BPA, drama, and Science Olympiad, these clubs teach you cooperation and leadership. For Science Olympiad there are many science teachers that help and support this club. BPA is often helped by the art teacher and digital media instructor. Most of these clubs meet tuesday through friday.
