Bearden High School is small but big in heart! they care about our future as students. My teachers were the realest people i have ever met and the best example of Christ i have ever encountered. they would share about their childhood, tell us about their family, pray over us, and listen to our stories. Us students are truly valued and loved by them. It's amazing how come together as one. Not only do the students and staff unite, but the whole town rallies for the students of the school. the entire school and town would come out to support our teams basketball, football, track, and softball. Every event would be packed with shouting fans pushing our players to play their hearts out. As much as competition was valued, the reason for playing was the bigger picture. I have made leaps and bounds academically, and socially. Whenever w come across any conflicts or miscommunication, it is handled immediately. Bearden High School is a well rounded school with excellent academics.

Bearden High School is on the brink of ether becoming a laughing stock or a highly competitive school. Despite this I can say without doubt the teachers are some the best around at teaching and connecting with students. Despite the great and evolving teachers its seems they are drowned out by the complete lack of consists with student body work ethic. To put in more understandable terms one class may have students who are fully ready to move to the next chapter of life, while others see class as a waste of time. I know it would be a challenge to change one person much less a student bodies outlook on life but that is the goal I wish to set for BHS.
What did I like about Bearden High School? I have spent the last 13 years at Bearden. Growing up with the same students and faculty members, made life in high school just a tad bit easier. I loved going to school there most of the time. It is still some things as a student and now as a Bearden Alumni I still do not agree with. But the main thing that I will always remember is, the teachers. No matter what is was going on in your life, relationships, grades, work, and/or home issues. They would always try to do THEIR best to see us succeed. Could not have asked for a better school to have graduated from.
