Posted January 23, 2004

I wish this site was available when we moved here last year! I have had a very positive experience at this school with all the above categories. For you Non-Texans trying to evaluate where to relocate, Bear Creek is the only non Grapevine School in the Grapevine/Colleyvile School District. I live in Euless and was originally misdirected to the HEB District. That system is equally as good, but rates slighter lower on all academic categories. We have benefited from the great kid's programs at the Euless Recreation Center as well as all the activities offered at Bear Creek School. They also have before/after school care at Bear Creek Elem. Check for space availability. I found transitioning into the school during the Christmas break a little confusing. Teachers and administrators are fully planted into their routine by January and sometimes forget that everything is new to the person who relocates. I'd recommend asking the school office or your child's teacher for the original packet of info that was handed out to the parents in August. This will provide you with the basic class and school info/rules so you have a good foundation communication. Hope this helps!
