A unique Community

Bay View is a unique school at a bustling neighborhood crossroads. We work to instill creative thinking and a healthy development for all students.

Our school is a place where learners are rigorously pushed to their highest potential of excellence with a diverse curriculum and unique enrichment opportunities. We support students with a system dynamic instruction that combines classroom work, small groups and on-on-one attention.

While making our school a welcoming home for all, we work to offer every challenge and support needed to help us all grow as learners and human beings. We like to say Bay View is "Where Everyone is Somebody."
