  • Bedford Primary is the best school ever. We face many challenges but the staff & students are wonderful. This is my child's second year attending and I couldn't be more pleased!Who ever said the staff and the and students were useless is WRONG! I supposed they will be one of those parents that transfers out of zone, because BPS/BES is so "bad". Go ahead and go, we don't need that type of negativity in our school!

  • Fantastic school! My oldest son continues to enjoy a great record of achievement and learning based on the special attention that he received at BPS. Top notch administrators and staff. A truly valuable community asset.

  • This school is absolutely amazing!!! The comment below is not correct. The teachers are awsome and the students are in K_2nd grade. They are learning how to behave. The principal is great. The afterschool programs are such a wonderful asset to the school. Bedford Primary has awsome diciple. Love this school!!!! It really hurts to hear such harsh words about this school...that are incorrect.

  • NOT impressed! Many, ill mannered and nasty children. It's unclear if these kids are just not taught right from wrong at home, or if they are simply not disciplined at the school. Either way, nice, respectful children are the ones who suffer. Forget talking to the teachers. USELESS! This will be the first and LAST year in this school (or this town for that matter)!
