Our school is pretty awesome. If you really think about it, compared to some local schools, Bedford High School has a very good program. Our school has amazing athletics, an awesome band, and many intelligent students that are involved in a various number of things our school has to offer. Sometimes, I just take a step back and look at the great things our school is going, whether for the community, or it's students.
