Overall it’s a fair experience. Bayside is a calmer area of New York. It definitely has a peaceful aspect compared to other areas of this crowded city. This took part in education. The calm area made learning a lot easier and more enjoyable. From the beginning of high school I enjoyed my experience In this area. There are local places to the school that friends could spend time at after school hours. The climate is beautiful and like I said, peaceful. Outdoor sports were all the more enjoyable being in a “suburban” like area. Overall worth the experience.

District 26 is one of the greatest school districts to raise a child! The district is so diverse and everyone is great. I went to district 26 schools my whole life and I wouldn't have changed it for anything. The teachers were great and the facilities were the best.
In District 26, Parents are involved a great deal which makes the community better and the education received better. The teachers care about the community and their student's futures.
