New Bedford Guide’s “I am New Bedford High School” Program


nbhslogoIt seems to be human nature in the media to cover the negative stories. 10,000 airplanes could take off successfully, but the media only pays attention to the one that crashes or disappears. Humans tend to be interested and even drawn to negative news.

Last year, a New Bedford High School student threw a chair at a teacher and was expelled. Too many kids at New Bedford High School get grouped in with the trouble makers – unfairly so. The students getting straight As, winning science fairs and excelling at sports don’t seem to get the same coverage as the students that fight or throw chairs at teachers. New Bedford Guide is going to change that.

We are starting a program called, “I’m New Bedford High School.” It will showcase the GOOD young men and women at the school; the real students that deserve recognition. The teachers, volunteers or anyone that is a positive influence on the school. Each article or video will spotlight a student by telling our city a little bit about them and spotlight their accomplishments. For example, a video of them showcasing their talent, some poetry, writing or something else that spotlights them.

We are looking for local businesses to sponsor this program. If you are interested in sponsoring this program contact

  1. There are so many great kids at the high school that do not get the attention they should. It is because of the disruptive students and the troublemakers in the classroom that the good kids and those who need and want their teachers’ help don’t get the education they need and deserve. I say, spotlight the great kids, and get rid of the troublemakers or give them an alternative setting where they won’t bother the “real STUDENTS”

  2. Let’s also highlight all the wonderfully successful people who grew up and graduated from NBHS, because we really do need to make my hometown meet the third goal again of being the richest city in the world! I am on the verge of moving back to help make it happen!!!!

  3. My nephew Cody is on so many sports teams for the school. 1st he was in football, now he’s playing ice hockey, next he’s going to join the lacrosse team. He loves New Bedford High School! And I’m so thankful to the school for making him so happy!
