Default Schools

Bedford County, PA is a beautiful area. Most of it is rural, so the schools are small. The public districts are Everett, Hyndman, Tussey Mountain, Chestnut Ridge, Bedford, and Northern Bedford County. Bedford probably has the largest graduating class, and Everett is second because these districts have more of a town/city atmosphere. The other districts are made up of smaller towns and spread out farmland, houses, and forests. Hyndman is by far the smallest district. I think their graduating class is under 40 students. I am not aware of any private schools other than Mennonite schools.

I attended Northern Bedford County and loved it there. The graduating class there in 2005 was 68 students, but this varies year to year. It has pre-kindergarten-grade 5 in the elementary school; grades 6-8 in the middle school; and grades 9-12 in the high school.

All of the schools offer extra-curricular and sports activities, but these are more limited with the smaller schools, especially Hyndman. It all depends on what you are looking for! So if you need more advice, feel free to ask more specific questions, and I'll see if I can answer them for you.

I moved to the Bedford County area 2 years ago, both me and my family love it here. It is mostly rural and a large part farming. Good hospital (UPMC) and some shopping (not that much). I although would stick with the Bedford area school district, my children 6, 9, and 12 are very happy in their schools. If there is anything else I can help you with please let me know

Can anyone tell me if the schools are fair to new students? With the schools so small in Bedford county is there a lot of favoritism? Thanks
