Bayside High School Reviews

As a student, I feel the certificate programs are a waste of time. The clubs are very boring and there's no point in creating a club since very few people will join due to the lack of enthusiasm. However, sports are phenomenal! As for academics, it's a good school if you're a good student. No matter where you go, school is what you make of it.
Review Bayside High School
It's a great school. I have learned many things from my experience at Bayside High School. I have developed many skills. The school offers many opportunities such as graduating early, accumulating high school and college credits in advance, volunteering, etc. The school has a very safe environment. The teachers are great. They are willing to help struggling students reach their potential. They are always available for extra help. You can go to the library during your lunch period and teachers will be there to help for any class. Overall, Bayside High School is a good school. I would definitely recommend others to attend this school.
Overall the school exudes a friendly atmosphere. The teacher's are always well- mannered and go beyond the classroom setting to help a student. In fact, one of the the school's best qualities is the Career and Technical Education(CTE) program. Almost every student is allowed to choose the field they wish to pursue and given work-based experiences on those choices. Although Bayside High School is a profoundly productive school, it's tremendously under-staffed. With more than 3,000 students, the school's dozen guidance counselors simply aren't enough. Hiring more qualified professionals is a must.
