    "While no school is perfect, this is the best public option in the area and better than most public schools in the state. I keep reading about food complaints and that the lunches don't follow the school "no sugar" policy, which is true. What most people fail to realize is that the lunch program is not a school program, the school board sold it to a third party "for profit" years ago, so the school has no say in what is served/sold by the lunch staff. The curriculum is harder than average (public school levels), but not even close to private school (as my son found out). If your child is advanced, self motivated, loves to push themselves or be pushed to be their best then bear creek is probably a good fit. As a parent, you will need to be ready for a private school like involvement or your child will struggle. On the other hand, if your child is behind, has poor skills, wants to do the least amount of work or put out the least amount of effort or you aren't able to support them every night then this is probably not going to be a good fitting school for them. Many teachers choice enroll their kids here and teach elsewhere...that wouldn't happen if this was a bad school."

    "BC K8 is equivalent to...a prison. The kids are not allowed to explore their own identity here. The expectations are unreasonable and honestly, similar to brain washing. Only after my oldest went to a near by jr high (mid way through 8th grade) did I really realize what damage this school does to parents and kids. Had I known years before, when I first enrolled my then first grader of what the future would be like at this school, I would have made a completely different choice for my children's early years. I can only hope now that jr and high school can smother that damage of the K8."

    "I recently graduated from the 8th grade here at Bear Creek and I agree and disagree with some of these reviews. The school dress code can be a little hard to comply with but it keeps the middle school tween/ teens from wearing short-shorts and baggy pants. There is nothing nice to say about the food, I packed my lunch every day. You can find milk that has expired years ago and all their fruit is bruised. They have a no sugar policy, but they still sell sweets as little snacks after lunch. The education your child will receive WILL CHALLENGE THEM, no matter what the grade level but it is worth it. The middle school ( Grades 7 and 8) grade papers using a college level grading system and there is a lot of homework each night ( at least 2 hours) but I am so glad I went to this school, I wouldn't have it any other way. The staff is great and the Teachers really do care about your child and their education. Go Bears!"

    "I definitely agree agree with these parents postings. I have a hard time finding my daughter clothes to wear to school. If there going to be this strict why are we not having the kids wear uniforms then? The school lunches definitely need to have better food. My son complains how awful it tastes. The education my kids get is great but they need to restructure the lunch and dress code better."

    "I've been a bear creek K-8 for nine years and if were two use two words to describe the school it would be tenacious and tough. I've received advanced CSAP scores my whole life and that is because of Bear Creek. I love the teachers, art, music, P.E., tech, Math COunts, Science Olympiad, and everything else this school has to offer them. I would gladly re do the last nine years of my life so I could stay at bear creek K-*. I would rather be here than anywhere. I'm not looking forward to Graduation because then I'll lose this school. No, BULLYING is not a problem. If you're gonna write that in a review make sure you know what your talking about and how to spell it. I love this school.I will miss it so much when I leave for high school next year."
