This was the best school that happened for my child. He was there during his 4 and 5th grade years each and every teacher he had created a unique and engaging learning environment for him. They treated him like he was their own child; from his class room teacher to the principal who is an amazing person herself. If your child wants to learn, this school does all it can to be sure that happens. THANK YOU BEDFORD!!!

The principal does not care about the unruly behavior of the students at this school and they go on to be unruly at the middle school. The school desperately needs a behavioral specialist and the administration is too cheap and selfish to appoint one. They downplay all of the crazy disrespectful behavior. The teachers are awesome. Too bad they are not supported by their administration. The administration needs to wake up. Your school has a behavioral problem. Dr. Dance, if you are reading this please step in so that these children will have a chance as they advance forward to secondary schools.

This school is okay. Check the bcps website for the msa report and you will see it is at or below average in most catergories. I have a bright child that would do well anywhere so I dont attribute his success to the teachers or staff there at all. I believe the low performance of the students is due lack of competent leadership, ill equiped teachers and unruly kids. I think the circulum is weak and doesnt prepare for high performing middle school it is especially lacking in the area of science technology engineering and math (STEM). Many teachers are inexperienced and impatient with the kids. They would benefit from more experienced teachers that focosed on teaching than trying to Not fail the MSAs. Their staff can be friendly but are quite rude at times. Teachers and staff could also use some training to improve their soft skills like how to communicate effective,communication, friendliness, and optimism. They need to understand how to build and foster a child's self esteem, confidence and love of learning. In 5 years that my child has been there -little to no academic resources or improvement. Re: other comments..class sizes 20+kids, TA for kids with IEPs only.

Bedford provides students with a nurturing environment that you don't receive at most schools. The class sizes are small and most classes have a TA. They also have numerous resource teachers available as well.

This schools lacks support needed. I took my child out of this school last year. She was in the 3rd grade. One of here spelling words was 'that'. I beleive it hindered her from reaching her fullest potential. The academic deparrtment needs some restructuring. Otherwise the staff was wonderful.
