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!

I liked part of my experience at Bear Creek because of my wonderful friends. However, there are quite a lot of things this school could improve on, such as their representation of diversity. Yes, we have a diverse student body; however, I feel that it is not really represented within student activities and student government. When my friends and I wanted to make an African Dance Club, the student activities coordinator asked us how we differed from the Black Student Union, which only represents Black American culture. I found this problematic and ignorant because she wouldn't have dared ask an Asian group that. The majority of student activities, clubs, and groups are Asian, but when blacks want more than one group to represent our diversity and the multitude of our culture, we're criticized, called "extra," or frowned down upon. I will say, however, that there were many teachers who did support our group, and for that, I greatly appreciate them.
I loved my teachers and how invested they are in teaching us, as well as how diverse and inclusive the environment is, but I'd like to see improved conditions of the campus as a whole. Usually only one bathroom is open, so I have to walk across campus if I want to use it during class, and it's not particularly the cleanest bathroom. Also, teachers often spend their own money on equipment, so hopefully someday there will be fundraisers or school funding increases so that teacher's don't use their salaries for things that should already be provided.
