Bear Creek High School opened as the third Lodi Unified School District high school in the fall of 1991 to serve the many LUSD high school students who reside in north Stockton. Beginning with just freshmen and sophomore classes, Bear Creek is now a large comprehensive high school with an estimated 2019-2020 student population of near 2,250. The student population from our primarily residential attendance area reflects the diversity of our community ethnically, culturally, and economically. The staff and students value this diversity and believe that it enriches the teaching and learning experience for all. The school's philosophy emphasizes the ability of all student to learn in what is primarily a heterogeneous environment. High standards are held for all, while multiple support services and programs have been developed over the years to ensure the ability of all students to meet those standards. The over 100 certificated staff members are highly committed to the school and to its students, as are our 75 excellent support staff personnel.
Teachers, students, parents, support staff, and community members work together to create a welcoming environment at Bear Creek High School that is safe, academically challenging, and supportive of students’ social, emotional, and physical development. Students honor and share their unique cultural backgrounds to nurture growth, responsibility, and productivity in a climate that fosters pride in diversity. Through a broad offering of rigorous and challenging courses, and with the support of Bear Creek’s extended learning community, teachers inspire curiosity and model adaptive expectations so that all students can achieve educational success. Teachers also collaborate across disciplines to build relevant and stimulating academic activities that ensure students develop and refine their ability to think critically, solve problems, work collaboratively, and create meaning. This process enables students to become responsible, invested partners in their educational and personal growth. Finally, students experience a positive school-wide atmosphere that promotes sportsmanship, school spirit, and self-respect through the celebration of their accomplishments.
