    My boys loved attending this wonderful place. The teachers are wonderful and well liked by both kids and parents. The administration was always caring and respectful. It makes me sad that my boys will not be able to continue going to school at Bay Colony.

    I love being part of the school family at Bay Colony! We serve the greatest children and their families. Bay Colony is a dynamic and positive place to be! The principal is very caring toward the staff and visitors and is completely dedicated to meeting the needs of the students. She puts the needs of the students above all else. She greets as many students as she can each morning and always has a smile and something nice to say to them. She remembers the little details about the students and their families and that makes them feel special. The principal and the entire staff work very hard to make sure the academic and emotional needs of the students are met. This staff is very happy to work together and the enthusiasm to work together and with the students is contagious! Come visit us at Bay Colony and you will love it too!

    The staff and the principal are very caring toward the students and welcoming to the parents and visitors. It is a community school that makes visitors feel welcome. The teachers expect the students to learn as much as possible and they have high expectations. The support staff is very helpful and there always seems to be someone available to help when visitors come to an event on campus.

    My daughter loves it here. The programs are great and the teachers are awesome. Everyone seems to work together to ensure sucess. I love that all students have 2 main teachers to help them adjust to switching classes in higher grades.
