    Bay Farm is truly a magical place. Not only do they have an exceptional faculty and a top notch curriculum, but their enrichment opportunities are unbeatable. Subjects like STEM, and agriculture are embedded into each student's schedule to create a truly unique hands on learning experience.
    The faculty are always looking for ways to create meaningful work for each student and are truly committed to helping each child reach their true potential. Admin are supportive and open minded to each child's unique needs. They are always thinking about ways to improve the campus and their curriculum to ensure they are providing the highest quality education for their students. We are so grateful to be a part of this school and community.
    Bay Farm Montessori Academy truly fosters independence and a love of learning. Our child began in Bay Farm's Toddler House Program and is a proud graduate of Bay Farm's Middle School Program. As parents, we can honestly say that Bay Farm educates the whole child. I feel throughout our child's time at Bay Farm they never wavered from educating the whole child or their mission. To that end, our child is now an engaged learner, critical thinker, empathetic peer, and student/adolescent that thinks beyond himself. Bay Farm had a profound effect not only on our child but for us as parents.
