My child goes to this school and while I agree with some of the comments written here, I do have to say that my child was involved in a bullying situation and the principal and teachers did take it very seriously and followed up with us immediately. I do feel this school is somewhat at risk b/c of the ...  Read more

Bay View School lacks essential funding (no Gym,Music or Art teachers-the PTA pays for this). Some of the teachers are awesome but many are horrible!

Both of my children attended Bay View Elementary. I was so pleased with their teachers, the administration, the support staff and the overall environment. My children got excellent educations in a safe, engaging and positive environment. I can't say enough good things.

My son is in 2nd grade at Bayview. I could not be more pleased with the school. He has had excellent teachers, there are ample opportunities for music/arts, and parents are highly involved. Bayview is far more integrated than other public schools in the area.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
