I read both of the TWO reviews posted for this school. In one of the TWO reviews, the individual wrote they think Bearden "rises above the normal expectation" for a school. Maybe if the expectation was to continue producing uneducated, uncultured, and unfit members of society. My experience at Bearded High School is that they only care about athletics. They are in the smallest subdivision of state schools for athletics and haven't produced a championship team in many, many years. The administration needs to emphasize academics rather than athletics. In fact, the ADE needs to roll that school up and divide it between Harmony Grove and Fordyce.
