Bay Academy is overall an a-ok school. There are some amazing teachers and some teachers that are rather questionable. Teachers who are actively teaching tend to pay attention to their students. Personally I myself have had my teacher sent me down to a guidance counselor because of this depression-esque drawing I made. And that teacher was rather sharp. However there are some teachers that are rather disinterested in their job... There are some teachers who let their emotions get to them rather then staying professional. Besides that, they do have a m a z i n g science and math teachers.

Bay Academy is a great school. The homework amount depends on what teacher you get. Most teachers are nice and caring, but some could care less about you and teach as little as possible. All the administrators (principals, APs, deans, etc) care about every single student. Student counselors make sure that everyone is okay and well. They are always there when you need to talk to them. if you join after-school, there are many different activities for students. Overall, i would recommend Bay Academy to all 5th graders.
Bay Academy is a wonderful school for youngsters. It instills core values to students while preparing them for high school. Quality academics, safe environment, and its resources make Bay Academy an overall great middle school.
