Bear Valley Middle School Reviews

Great place to send your child to learn.

By a Parent on

I'm not sure why some people would have bad comments to say about this school but all of my children have attended this school and they were challenged everyday to learn and to discipline them selves to succeed. This is not a violent school and the teachers are very involved with the kids as well as the parents. Maybe if parents would be more involved with their children's education rather than thinking of school as just a place to leave your kids there wouldn't be so many bad comments!

Worst School ever to attend

By a Former Student on

Bear Valley could not have been a worse school. Between the trashy kids and low level of education, the school should be shut down for how much of a disgrace it is to this generation's education. More than half of the kids who attend are there by law, not will. They are a distraction and block in the road for those of us who actually wanted to learn. They have brought the education level down to the minimum. I hate this school and everything about it, and that will never change. Say what they will to cover their butts, but they are a terrible school and they know it. I'm sorry for those who attend and suffer. Do not send your child to this school if you actually want them to succeed.

The teachers this year are serious, engaging and fantastic! Grades and homework updated on-line daily.  Population is 50/50 regarding studious behavior and parental support. Students' career here will be whatever they make of it. But, cameras everywhere and police dogs on campus.

Teachers are involved with students not just there to go through the motions. School is very clean and lots of pride is very evident by all of the banners posted around the campus. My son loves going there and that makes school alot easier.
