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.

Bear river high school is a small school. Like every other school it has it's ups and downs. Our principal loves the students that are involved in sports. Most of the teachers want you to succeed in life! We have a bunch of diffrent clubs to join and be apart of. I was in evolved with my high school marching band from my 8th grade year to my 10th grade year. Then junior year I tried out for our high schools color gaurd team and I loved it! I tried out again this year and made the team again, but i had to drop it because i wanted to complete my agricultural path way. This class interfered with my color gaurd class because they were the same hour. And I felt it was more important to finish something i want my career to be then do a hobbies. Bear River High School gives you the opportunities to make your dreams happen.
Bear River is a very small school, but very welcoming to newcomers. Everyone seems to know everyone and are all super friendly. We have a thing called claw time where we can get help with homework. It lasts for half an hour and is super helpful! I love the teachers and the smaller amount of students. Our student sections and sports games are so fun to be a part of!
