    Bay is phenomenal. The kids learn to truly respect each other as they build close relationships with their teachers. This is a rare place full of happy and inspired people. Bay is doing an excellent job creating competent and confident young adults. As a parent it is a joy to have these smart and funny kids over to our house apparently that is rare for teenagers these days.

    We couldn't be happier with the school. From the very beginning admissions process we could tell that this was the school for our son. He is very bright but quiet but he was very much put at ease through the interview and his visits. Now that he is there he is not pushed to be something he is not (which was the case at his previous school where there was a lot of emphasis on being social) and he is blossoming. If you are looking for a school that has strong academics a diverse community and where all personalities can flourish I highly recommend Bay.

    This school was incredible. Engaging classes enthusiastic top quality teachers focus on raising ethical compassionate and responsible human beings athletics welcoming and diverse community - all under one roof and in a National Park setting. Can't imagine a better place to be for a teenager.

    I am a graduating senior and have had a wonderful experience at Bay School. It turned me on to subjects I had previously believed were beyond my reach and provided great support academically and otherwise. I would support anyone's decision in attending the Bay School and I would do it all over again if given the chance I have been very happy

    I am absolutely ecstatis about the Bay School. My daughter is graduating this year as part of the first class and she is my third child. She went to a different school for freshman year and of all the schools my kids attended I am most impressed with Bay.
