At first I was very hesitant to join Bayview. It's an all girls school, each class is an hour and a half, there's uniforms. In 9th grade , (this year) I finally decided to go. Honesty, this was the best decision I've ever made. Not only was I improving academically, but I was also experiences changes with who I was as a person. Within weeks, I was becoming more independent, feeling better and more confident about myself, and over all being stronger than ever. The transition was tough at first since I transferred mid- semester, but the staff and students supported me so much and made me feel welcome. Being at an all girls school, I expected there to be tons of drama. But there has been barely any! Everyone was is kind and accepting of each other. I love the atmosphere at bayview! I totally recommend going here at least for high school, there are so many opportunities and the experience at this school is life changing.

This school has been a fantastic experience for our daughter for the last 3 + years - she is a 2018 graduating senior and we couldn't have asked for a better opportunity or location for her to grow, develop and shine! As a proud 1986 Alum from Bay View, I was personally thrilled that our daughter selected BVA as her place for her high school years! Single gender education is a conscientious choice, one in which we did not take lightly. It worked for both of our children (our son graduated in 2017 from Hendricken) and we'd do it again in a minute!
My daughter came to Bayview in 6th grade after our public school was not meeting her academic needs. Bayview is a warm community of teachers & students and was avery welcoming environment. She loves her school and proudly invites others to come here as a student ambassador. Her academic offerings have been exceptional, with opportunities for individualized planning and she can confidently say, "I am Bayview"!
