Our daughter, after transferring from another state, says she loves this school. Says the 'cliques' are minimal, drugs aren't in your face like her previous school, teen pregnancies are non-existant and the principal is outstanding. She's only had one extremely left-winged teacher who went on and on about gun control but that the students just ignored her rants. She loves all her other teachers who are supportive and helpful and don't push political agendas. The big downfalls are the football field-almost dangerous its so uneven. Also, a school this big ought to be awesome in football/basketball yet they didn't get far (in football). A+ in academics though Bearden High!

Bearden High School has a great reputation of strong leadership among the administration, faculty and student body. Strong academics, sports and parent involvement make Bearden a great place!

BHS is the a nationally ranked High School and is amazing. I love going to school there everyday. They have so many clubs and organizations that everyone has a chance to be involved. The Principal really cares about the students and has taken time out to talk to me about where I want to go to college and offering me feedback. He loves the students and their opinions. There are tons of amazing teachers and a lot of unique classes are offered. The only complaint I have is the pot holes around the school.

Bearden has several challenging academic classes that many students enjoy taking. The teachers go beyond expectations when helping students in class or out of class with tutoring. The school has several student leadership groups that lead the student body to excel. The principal tries and succeeds at connecting to the students, acting as a friend and mentor to all. It is a wonderful school.

The classes and teachers are great, but the administration is terrible. They have no idea what is going on and do not communicate with the parents. The principal will not respond to emails and will only give you generic responses. His email signature says "It's about the students". He didn't show one bit of interest or concern for my students.

I am not satisified with Bearden High School at all. My husband and I have tried to communicate with the Principal via Email never will he respond to our emails reguarding my husbands children. Bearden High Schools allow children to miss almost 40 days in 3/4 of a school year and do nothing about it. Teachers tell the children if they pass the 'Gateway' exam that they will pass them the entire year. Even though they have a 30 something average in Algebra and the child does not know how many days are in a year or months in a year. Yes that does back to the elementary and middle schools. The high school allows children with 'records' and are failing in their ROTC class and they also allow children who are failing play sports. Something does not add up at that school, I would not recommend this school

We came from a small town in Alabama. We were looking for a school with kids that looked and had the same values as our family. We looked at Farragut and West, but Bearden was just what we were looking for. My 10th grader loves it, and has fit in well socially and academically.

I have 4 kids - one has graduated from Bearden and the other three are currently attending Bearden. We have 1 with a Learning Disabiblity. The staff are wonderful to work with and truly want each child to succeed. There are multiple opportunities for parents to get involved. There is a good balance between sports and academics. I feel our oldest child was totally prepared for college classwork. The school has many AP and honors classes and offers 6-7 languages as well as many vocational classes.

I was a student at BHS for four very long years. The teachers try too hard to be chummy with students, the athletic department is very poorly managed, and some of the rules and regulations are ludacris. I had several teachers that were really good at what they did. However, they were also run off by the ridiculous policies. I hate this school, and will do everything in my power to let the public know exactly how bad it is. --Class of 2005

This is one of the best high schools in the country, dedicated staff, a really cool new principal, and the greatest arts dept in the world. My children have become so involved in the school that they want to be there when the school doors open(and that is really early) and leave when the school doors are locked. This shows that the committment of the faculty and staff and the respect of the culture of education is number one at Bearden and the children will forever appreciate this learning experience!
