Bay Shore High School gives students an abundanceof oportunities to succeed,in multiple different sectors. For one, our sports teams are highly ranked, as well as our national award-winning Model UN, Drama Club, and Literary Magazine. EVERYONE can find something they enjoy to do here, whether its in the arts, academics, sports, or in-between. The staff, while very busy, are almost always there to help you out, and we have a Peer Support program that fosters positive messaging and counseling for those with mental health issues.
Some downsides is that depending on your graduating class, students can be very competitive.Often times the pressure from peers is more burdensome than the pressure from teachers and administration.Also while we are relatively diverse in student body, there are only two black/POC faculty members, and only one is a teacher. While Bay Shore is an amazing school, diversity in all of its aspects needs to be addressed.

There is no better place to get an education. Bay Shore High School is an incredible school that definitely prepares its students for college and offers a stimulating learning environment. The school offers many programs that are a challenge for its students, such as Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes. The teachers are able to make learning interesting, and are well educated as well. There are many Clubs to join, there is a place for every student. Bay Shore as a town is incredibly diverse, thus the school is very diverse. No student feels out of place. It is great. The Administration takes safety seriously, and they make sure that students are safe to the best of their ability.
I enjoyed Bay Shore High School because of the diversity, the attention, and the college readiness. Our school is probably one of the most diverse on Long Island, and with the large population of students, there are many different people from all backgrounds. The guidance counselors help to the best of their ability with all of a student's needs, and it is very comfortable. The establishment of the Time Out Room as a place for the peer support club and the school psychiatrists, there is a welcoming atmosphere that lets students know that there is always someone there to listen. The IB Diploma Program and the Advanced Placement classes provide students a chance to earn as many college credits as they want, and the guidance counselors encourage you to test your limits with your classes. Bay Shore Senior High School is truly an outstanding school for preparing students for the future.
