Open Quote Bear Creek is a very dis-functional school. A lot of bad students, and teachers who are there just to get money. Orientation was a mess 2010-2011 year! Kids put on teams they weren't suppose to be on, kids switching homerooms more than twice, and more. There are so many good students who don't get recognized because there are so much other problems to focus on than acknowledging good students. The counseling is really bad. In my 6th grade year, I was getting bullied. Physically, mentally, and emotionally by 4 boys and all the counselor gave them was silent lunch. I found that quite stupid because what problem can that solve. The counselor didn't even call the parents! Bear Creek is not the best school to send your child. They also haven't made AYP for a long time! 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.
