    This school really makes an effort to do what is best for the students. It is focused on inclusion and real-world inspired academics. Athletics are getting better each year but the reason to attend Bay is to mature into a whole person who is curious, compassionate and independent. Immersive programs allow students to go deep on topics by spending weeks in real situations, addressing real challenges.

    Thoughtful leadership that supports the individual. Student body is active, energized and talented. Teacher response time to questions is excellent. Flex periods lessen burden of homework allowing participation in activities outside of school
    Academics and faculty are amazing. Such a great and accepting community where everyone can be themself. One thing that could be better is the amount of devotion to sports within the sports department. Pretty much anyone who graduates from Bay and plays college sports plays outside of the Bay athletics (with a club). If sports were not in the picture, I would give a 5/5. Best academic experience I could have had. So glad I chose this school.
