    "Our family has been at Bear Creek for 6 years and we have been happy to see our children grow and flourish at this exceptional school. It is a neighborhood school, and with home prices sky-rocketing here, the community is not as diverse as other sections of Boulder. But as I watch my oldest preparing to enter middle school, I can do so with relief, knowing that she has the knowledge, study skills and maturity to handle the next stage of her education. Thank you Bear Creek!"

    "We love the teachers at this school, the focus on science, and the PTO is strong. The failings are there is NO diversity either culturally, economically or ethnically. The students are exclusive to this white, upper middle class neighborhood. Unfortunately what lets the staff down at this great school is one of the front admin staff, who can never smile and treats parents and children with a very judgmental tone, and the principle who just seems driven by test scores and having the "best" school academically in Boulder County. Otherwise the best thing about this school is the amazingly talented teachers."

    "Bear Creek Elementary is a wonderful school. The teachers, principal, administrative staff, and parent volunteers are truly outstanding. It is clear that they all love what they do."

    "Bear Creek K8 - the elementary and jr high. Stay away from this school. The administrative staff will smile and tell you what they want you to believe then when you turn your back, they are conniving dishonest people. If your child does not fit into the educational required box of Jeffco, especially this school, forget getting any new ideas on how to help your child learn. The teachers are not equipped to teach to the child's ability to learn. I've had two children attend and could not wait for my youngest to leave at the 6th grade year to attend jr high in the area - not the jr high here. I would recommend anyone to stay away from this school."

    "Our child was going to BC for 2 years and her math and reading comprehension have been consistently low. She was assigned the ESL program, even though English is her only language. She has trouble with paying attention in class so at times she would be disruptive. Last month her behavior was very bad so we disciplined her. She went to school crying and the principal called *** on us. A couple weeks after the *** visit, and them finding nothing wrong at the home front, they actually had the nerve to call us to set up a conference. By then we have already been looking at alternatives, and have decided to pull her out and home school her to try to undo all the bad habits she has been picking up at this school. Perhaps their call was their way of trying to bully her out of their school since they are more concerned about the overall test scores than they are the individual children. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone, especially if you have children with darker colored skin."
