    "Bear River High School is a mediocre school. Some of the teachers are okay, some are bad, and some are good. And the ones that are good usually leave within a few years to go to a better job than the one they have at Bear River. The sinks in the bathroom are operated with a foot petal, so if there was anyone in a wheelchair they wouldn't be able to use it. The office staff are the worst. They sit in their office and just gossip and talk about their personal lives, leaving the students waiting there. They hardly ever directly answer your question. And getting a counselor appointment takes weeks, and only one of the counselors is empathetic and caring. The other is rude/snobby. The lunch line takes almost half of lunch. If you end up in the back of the line it leaves you with only five minutes to actually eat the food. The people there are very judgemental."

    "Academics are pretty good- yet there are teachers who play favorites. That happens everywhere though. Although, we are like a family here. There are a lot of cliques though."

    "This is my 4th year attending Bear River HS and i've absolutely loved my time there. It is sad my high school career is coming to an end but I know ahead my future awaits. Bear River has offered me so many opportunities such as sports, clubs, etc. I've made some amazing friends these past few years that I will have for a lifetime. Bear River is the nicest and most caring high school i've ever been to. Everyone cares for one another with no judgement of your race, religion, gender, views, etc. I've never seen a school full of students so respectful and loving to one another. The only thing I would change about Bear River is some of the teachers. Many of the teachers are older and can't relate to our generation as well as the younger teachers. They have a different teaching style most of the time which is hard to grasp. Overall, I love Bear River and am so happy to have been apart of their Bruin family."

    "I like that the community cares about the students and their families. Whether it's a sporting event or a performance, there are always parents and students that come out to support everyone. Being a small school, you get to know all the brothers and sisters (family names) you become part of a family. My favorite part about Bear River was the golf team. It gave me the opportunity to start something new and improve everyday. From golf I made new friends and was able to gain confidence by believing I could achieve anything I set my heart to. Thank you for the four years of high school Bear River. Go Bruins!"

    "Overall I enjoyed going to high school at Bear River. The staff and students are all very kind, care about what you have to say, and strive to make your time at Bear River the best it can be. Some upgrades could be more classes like cooking, variety of languages, and more AP classes. Our school could also improve on becoming solar, fixing leaks in classrooms, and upgrading our bathrooms."
