I grew up in the Hancock County school district, so moving to a new school my junior year was difficult. The kids were not nice, and it took a while for me to make new friends. In my personal experience most of the teachers are really great, and I enjoyed having them. I can tell the principal cares about the school and the students. Overall, I would say that Bay High is an okay school, but I would much rather be at Hancock High School.

I've gone to bay high for 4 years, i am a senior now. I love it, the teachers are nice and supporting and they are there if i need them to talk to. I've gotten close to a few of them and they are like family. Along with some of the students. It's a good community, the teachers and other staff are really into the tiger spirit, they get hyped up at pep rallys and make it really fun. I wouldn't want to go to any other high school. GO TIGERS!!!
I have gone to this school for 4 years. Over all it have been a very good experience. A lot of teachers are great. The principle and assistants are great.
The food is not very good. The facilities are pretty good but the restrooms could use work. Rules could be improved.
