Bear River Charter School

Where your student is known.

The mission of the Bear River Charter School is to provide an outstanding educational and social experience for elementary and middle school students (K-8).

We aspire to serve a population that is diverse in learning needs, race/ethnicity, and language background.

We have small class sizes, and our staff know the kids!
We have a 20:1 student to teacher ratio.

Bear River provides a positive, dynamic social and educational environment every day!

Our school features an educational program based on the individual needs of each student through:

  • a strong focus on basic skills in reading, spelling, writing and mathematics; 
  • active engagement in the areas of science, social studies, art, and physical education; 
  • a low student-to-teacher ratio; and 
  • emphasis on basic societal values of respect, consideration, cooperation and honesty.

We encourage parent involvement!

We have lots of volunteer opportunities, and we encourage all parents to volunteer!
