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. Accordingly, the counselors are always meeting up with their students making sure they are on the right track to be successful later on in life. The staffs on campus are just amazing! Not to mention, our spirit is the most uplifted. Bear Creek is filled with bruin pride all around. We have numerous of students involved in clubs, leadership classes, campus activities, community services, sports, etc. No doubt Bear Creek is simply just awesome!

Bear Creek High School is a very diverse school. We have several clubs that all students are eligible to become a part of. We have cultural clubs, volunteer clubs, gaming clubs, sporting clubs, and governmental clubs (Model U.N., Speech and Debate, etc.). However, Bear Creek is not known for it's high graduation rate, and is considered one of the easiest high schools in Stockton. Also, Bear Creek is not very safe. We have made the local news several times within a month, due to students bringing guns and knives onto campus during school and at football games, along with several large fights and riots. The school is not very clean either. Students at the school litter constantly and consistently vandalize the bathrooms.
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.
