Bear River High School Reviews

Overall, Bear River High School is a good School to attend. So many of the staff and teachers truly want their students to excel and are always willing to help them achieve their goals. There are lots of opportunities for every student to be involved. There is a very wide array of activities and programs for students to discover interests and further develop them. The entire school has a “small town USA high school” type of culture. The biggest problem with this school is just that it feels as if there aren’t enough teachers to go around. It can be hard to be able to take all the classes you want/need because there aren’t enough teachers available to teach specific classes more. But besides that, Bear River is a great school to attend.

Overall I loved Bear River High School. The teachers were fantastic and I always had the desire to learn more. They kept the students involved and it was easy to listen to them. I enjoyed the overall trimester schedule system they had, which gave us students the opportunity to take up to 18 classes the whole school year. The student body was very prideful to be a Bear River Bear, which made sporting events very exciting whenever we faced against rival teams. I will never forget the moments that I had as a youth at this high school, and I have learned that school can truly be an amazing experience.
I've gone to Bear River my whole high school career and my siblings also went to Bear River. It's a great school full of great teachers and administration. It's hard to see a drive form other students, this is a farming community so many students aren't interested in getting good grades. Our sports are average, but we try to have fun! I think sometimes sports are emphasized a bit too much. A few years ago when the school was under renovation they chose to build a half-million dollar indoor field house instead of renovating the crumbling auditorium.
