Bear Valley Elementary School is part of the Anchorage School District. Nestled among the whistling Spruce with the majestic Chugach Mountains as its backdrop. Since the school's construction in 1984, the Bear Valley staff and community have remained true to the tradition of providing a solid, well-rounded program that skillfully combines the best of the wisdom from our nation's educational past with the working knowledge of the ever-changing world we live in. With emphasis on a philosophy based on sincere dedication and meaningful community/parent support, Bear Valley is committed to, and focused upon, the task of preparing its youth for the future. We are a 2015 National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.
