The low rating all indicate the same thing: poor teachers. From reading the other comments, I see nothing has changed since I attended the school. The teachers, more often than not, want to be your friend; not your educator. Discipline's a joke. Bullies are( or were) allowed. The athletes receive ...  Read more

In the few different hight schools in three different states this is the worst one I have ever had to deal with.

I am currently a student at BNL and I think it is a great high school to attend. Although people say the school is crowded in a bad way, but I think being in a big school helps a student to prepare for college where there will be tons of people you don't know.

This is a poor school. The teachers that are suppose to be teaching, half of them would rather spend the class time talking about their weekend, or something fun that happend.

I attended Bedford North Lawrence High School from 2001 to 2005. I was active in the band, and the band department in my opinion is horribly managed and some of its teachers are of extremely poor quality.

This is a high quality school with some of the best teachers possible. I am a graduate of the NLCS system and though there is a dud here and there, the system employees many highly qualified teachers who genuinely invest themselves in their students. I see that there are many poor reviews attacking ...  Read more

i have experienced faculty members at this school express entitlement and disregard to a parent's voice. i feel the reason some parents disconnect is because by the time their children have gone through bedford junior high with their children, there is a bad taste in their mouths and they simply give ...  Read more

The faculty is aweful here. They are disconnected. Hates parents. I can't wait until my kid is out of this school and finishes.

BNL really does spend way too much money on sports compared to non-athletic activities. The music department is funded mostly through fundraising, and everything used for Drama Club is bought by the students or teacher in charge of it. In addition, BNL really does not provide a high-quality education ...  Read more

I really am disappointed in BNL's commitment to it's students needs. They'd rather spend all there money on sports and stuff we really don't need. We need new lockers they are so small ... the teachers barely help. The foreign languages lack anything special ... and they're overbooked ... It's disgusting. ...  Read more
