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.
Bay is a great highschool where students can really push themselves and connect with truly amazing teachers. Additionally, Bay has made me much more aware of the world around me and has helped me to become a better person.
