Additional Information

Bear Creek K-8 School serves approximately 1,125 students and is committed to creating a learning environment that promotes student achievement and success by maintaining a rigorous instructional pace, integrating technology, fostering safety, and encouraging parent-community participation. Approximately 50% of our exiting 8th grade students have successfully completed Algebra 1 and/or Geometry and nearly 85% have mastered two years of Spanish. To cultivate well-rounded students we also offer many extracurricular activities, which include Spanish Enrichment (elementary level), competitive sports, Mad Science, Artful Journey and Hand Bell Choir. In addition, we have implemented several service projects that continue to significantly assist several families in our community who are challenged by economic hardships.
