My experience at Bearden High School is filled with memories both good and bad. On the forefront of the good: I have had some wonderful teachers, who instill both a passion and a reverence for their respective subjects within their students; made great friends; and have enjoyed the clique-free, welcoming, and encouraging environment. My bad experiences being—little to no help from guidance, an administration unwilling to help their students (excluding only the head principal, Dr. John Bartlett), severe overcrowding, and a nearly crippling reliance on technology in the classroom. All in all, as long as you get the classes you like and never have any medical issues warranting extra assistance from the school; Bearden is a great place for you.

Bearden High School has prepared me for college. Though classes were challenging I learned a lot from some amazing teachers! Overall, a great high school that fosters creativity, curiosity and critical thinking. There isn't a particular thing I would change.
I love the connection between the teachers and students. Bearden High has many opportunities for students to be involved such as clubs, sports, extra curricular. The schools is always want to you explore your choices after high school, bring in university. Teachers always want to help you with your choices. The administration are super friendly.
The food at school is unhealthy and horrible food selection. I highly recommend packing lunch, it's the same things every since day
