Open Quote We have three kids currently attending Bear Creek K8, and one who moved up to the high school two years ago. In the 10+ years that we have been involved with the bear creek community (so far) I have to say that, for the most part, we are very happy. MOST of the staff truly want to be there and really care, but there have been a couple that we didn't care for. The key here is to be involved and informed. As a parent, you have to be doing your part by checking folders, checking your students' work and using your resources to be engaged. 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.
