    Bedford Heights Reviews

    I grew up in Bedford Heights and graduated from school there. I moved away shortly after graduation, only to find myself moving back to my old neighborhood. This is a great area to live and raise a family. The neighborhoods are very well kept, the streets are clean, and there are many neighborhood activities.
    Review Bedford Heights
    I spent the majority of my childhood in the public school system of this area. A lot of students grew up together, so generally people's families know each other. Even though it's generally a pretty quiet neighborhood, it's slowly aging.
    The neighborhood I live in is very nice. It is racially diverse. The are restaurants, a beautiful community center, an outdoor pool and a nice library. There is a nice park with a waterfall. You can walk places and not be harmed even at night. The teachers are good and always willing to help.
