Families with school-age students are served by the top-rated Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District, which operates twenty elementary schools, five junior high schools and two high schools. Parents who opt for a private education send their children to the Anglican-run St. Vincent’s Cathedral School.
For individuals interested in pursing higher education, Bedford also is also home to a campus of the for-profit Brown Mackie College system. This institution offers courses in healthcare, business and technology and legal studies.
Bedford has a number of leisure attractions for residents of all ages. The Movie Tavern offers a unique pairing of newly released films with food and beverages beyond the typical cinema fare of popcorn, candy and soda. And the Bedford YMCA has a gymnasium as well as an aquatics center that offers swimming, water fitness and scuba diving lessons.
A popular summer destination is Bedford Splash, a water park that includes three different pools: one for toddlers, one suitable for children and adults and another that features space for lap swimmers and an area for water slide fun.
For older adults, the Bedford Senior Center offers weekly dances as well as exercise and Tai Chi classes. It also provides opportunities to play bridge, billiards or dominoes, participate in needlecraft, quilting and china painting activities and attend AARP meetings. For the musically inclined, it even offers guitar sessions.
