HOSA (a student extracurricular organization geared towards future health professionals) challenges students to build their knowledge and skills. It offers an opportunity for the students to showcase their expertise in a competitive event.

Ilana and Hussein competed in the Health Education category at the HOSA Regional Leadership Conference. The topic they chose was Stress Resilience because everyone experiences stress. They shared their lesson with students in grades 5-9 using games and activities. They also created a short PSA video (5:50) to explain the importance of stress resilience to not only the students in the school district they didn’t get to talk to, but also to share with the wider community on the importance of stress resilience and managing stress. You can view it here: The Stress Factor PSA

A trio of Bedford students, Gavin, Anthony and Liam, put together a PSA on “How to Talk to Friends and Family About Mental Health.” Their short 30 second video gives you a quick overview of what to notice in their actions and gives suggestions on how to show you care. It concludes with a couple of links to additional resources at seizetheawkward.org and mentalhealth.gov. You can view their PSA here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DixSObWVNCc

Bedford Public School District is proud to offer a high quality education to the residents of Bedford Township, Michigan!

OUR MISSION: All learners will be prepared for lifelong success through:

  • High quality instruction
  • Diverse experiences
  • A supportive environment
  • Strong community engagement.

OUR VISION: Educating for Life!  

Bedford Public Schools continues a tradition of educational excellence that starts with early childhood education in our award winning Great Start Readiness Preschool (GSRP) program. Our three elementary schools: Douglas Road Elementary, Jackman Road Elementary, and Monroe Road Elementary, provide an excellent foundation for students to grow from Young Fives to Grade 5. Bedford Junior High School offers a softer transition from the elementary atmosphere with a school-within-a-school for 6th graders before moving to more independent learning and students switching classes for grades 7 and 8 in preparation for high school. The many academic options available at Bedford High School, along with our Bedford Virtual Academy, means every student can thrive with classes based on their interests or potential choice of college studies or career path. Our Career & Technical Education (CTE) courses teaches real world, hands-on skills in 13 different career pathways. A wide variety of courses, a strong visual and performing arts program, competitive athletics, and extracurricular opportunities all contribute to a well-rounded education for our graduates. Many graduates leave with college credits and/or industry recognized certifications. Lifelong learning continues beyond high school and graduation with our Adult Education programs and other enrichment options in our outstanding Community Education program. 

Bedford Public Schools has an enrollment of over 4,000 students that routinely exceed state averages in assessments such as the M-STEP, MME and SAT thanks to the efforts of our dedicated staff, the hard work of our students, and the support of parents and our community. We are proud to be the Kicking Mules!
