Bear Creek Creek High School is the absolute best learning environment! The teachers are super helpful, and very engaging. They make sure their students understand their class well by providing their best assistance.

Bear Creek has the most diverse student body in any school in the district! All the teachers have the best interest of the students in mind and one goal for everyone. There is no racial bias of anyone and the students are very welcoming. There are many club activities and sports for everyone to join, After school activities are run by students and are presented in our famous
"International Rally". This rally allows the different cultures in our school to be shared and recognized by the school.
Bear Creek High School is the birth place of a majority of my high school memories- good and bad. The school is outdoors, which is very pleasant during the spring, summer, and even fall; but when it rains it is best to stay under the awning. Also- watch out for the birds! I have gotten pooped on before, and I must say it was very disheartening. The teachers are all so kind and helpful and there are many opportunities to get involved in the community through the school. Preparation for college was the main focus my senior year which really made my transition into "adulthood" less nerve racking. I love this school, no matter what anyone says.
