The teachers are encouraging and the principals are wonderful!! My daughter has excelled as a sixth grader. We disregarded the initial reviews of the school and met with her teachers and the principal at the beginning of the school year. We found that the challenges are not with the staff but the lack ...  Read more

Bear Creek Middle School does not help students in any way. Sometimes they pass your child just because they dont wont your child in the class. They punish your child for no reason. I rate this school a 1 star.

I went to Bear Creek several years ago, I have since graduated high school and started college. The school and the teachers are not the problem, the parents and students are the problem. Most of these children come from low-income, single parent homes and they wouldn't know discipline if it kicked them ...  Read more

I am reviewing comments and trying to find info on this school for 'school choice'. Seems like there is really not much of a choice between the schools in (this) area. Similar 'foul-mouthed', rude, disrespectful,and unruly kids at Renaissance Middle (a school with great staff & low parental involvement). ...  Read more

I worked at BCMS from 2007-2009. The school is pretty average. The biggest issue at Bear Creek is a lack of parental involvement which is directly correlated with student achievement. I wasted many hours waiting to meet with parents about their child's academics and/or behavior, they don't show up. ...  Read more
