New Bedford Public Schools (NBPS) is a school district serving New Bedford, Massachusetts, United States. Its headquarters are the Paul Rodrigues Administration Building.[5]

During the 2006–07 academic year, the New Bedford school district (then under the direction of Superintendent Michael Longo) was one of several in Massachusetts labeled as "underperforming" under the state's MCAS guidelines.[6] The school system, like that of nearby Fall River, is also in the process[when?] of major school upgrades and consolidations, having rebuilt several of its schools in recent years.[when?] The most recent, Keith Middle School, required a cleanup of the polluted soil on the site.[7][8]

The school district, headquartered in the former high school building on County Street, is made up of twenty-eight schools.
