Open Quote A wonderful school thanks in part to very dedicated parents, teachers and leaders. School and surrounding homes are located in established, two decade-young neighborhoods.

While many school parents work, the school community is blessed with a higher than average number of stay-at-home parents, which account for the high number of parent volunteer hours. Bear Canyon feeds into the highly-regarded Mountain Vista High School system. Students also benefit from exceptional music, art and physical education programs; adding to a well-rounded educational experience. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
