It is awesome. We have excellent teachers and staff. They always encourage us and are king. The learning experience is interactive and effective. We learn lesson that help us both academically and in life. Bear Creek Charter is definitely the best school in town.

While I've heard great things about the school, I have to say the waiting list and the administration's involvement in actually calling parents back is ridiculous. One of my sons was on the waiting list for 4 years without a call back, because this charter accepts relatives of students, board members and "higher ups" as opposed to who is on the actual list and in what order. I've given up on the waiting list. Such a shame.

I am very very grateful that this school is open and that the waiting list opened for my. 3 children. My children have been enrolled for 3 years and I have seen a Tremendous change in their intellectual growth, their confidence level and the way they treat others. The entire staff are so dedicated to their students and they love parent evolvement. My only desire is that the school would become a HS as well. Thank you.

This is an awesome school. I'm in Middle School and believe that the teachers respect all the students, no matter where they come from. This school deserves all 5 stars*****

I have also seen other schools and this school is very hands on and about the children. The education is good, the environment is good. My children are learning, happy and thriving what else could you want. And yes there is a waiting list so I am obviously not alone.

I have been at other schools in the area and this school is like a big family, the require parent involvement when other schools hinder parent from being involved in their childrens on campus learning. There is a waiting list for almost all grades I think tells you what the community thinks about this school.

The quality of Bear Creek Community Charter School's academic program is superior to that of other schools in this area. Our students seem to be ahead of other students their age in other schools. I feel this is because of our small classroom size and the availability of our teachers to help their students with any academic problems. The music and art programs are great. Bear Creek Charter School has a soccer team, which did quite well their first season, and a girls softball team. I understand the school has intentions of adding a boys baseball team and also a wrestling team in the future. We are a big family, helping each other out where need be. We know almost every student by name, which is a thrill for our student body.
