Bayside High School Reviews

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.
Bayside High School was an overall "okay" experience. The staff didn't provide for the students and weren't that helpful as tutors either. The school had installed alarms on the door so that no student could exit besides their designated doors. Leaving the school became a slower process than needed. The food was terrible and once they had served us just three cheesy breadsticks for lunch and that was it. There was a point where they served pizza everyday and only one other "different" option. Students were frustrated that the head staff/deans would give special treatment to the students who were failing than those who were succeeding. For example, a student with poor grades, would have a shorter schedule come senior year than another who was top of their class and were in AP classes as well. Bayside teachers gave off this vibe that they had given up on their troublemaking students and just wanted them out of their classroom so they gave them an easy passing grade.
