Baywood Elementary School Reviews

Great Learning Experience at Baywood

By a Parent on

My kids go to Baywood Elementary's relatively new transitional kindergarten program and love their teacher and the school. They have lots of activities that they are excited about participating in -- and are learning more and more every day. Their teacher is amazing and encourages them to learn while providing a safe environment for the to grow socially and emotionally.

Baywood Elementary is a fantastic school. The teachers are excellent and the parents are highly involved and committed to creating the best learning environment for the kids.

For example, the parents raised significant money to extend library, computer and music hours. In addition, it enabled the students to have PE every day by hiring more PE teachers through fundraising.

Perhaps most importantly, the majority of the parents volunteer and support the school in some way or another. Baywood receives roughly 15,000 volunteer hours a year, enabling many programs and activities that otherwise would not be possible.

Baywood has a very talented and engaged teacher staff, and the parent involvement at the school is excellent.  We've been very pleased with the school and our kids are happy and enjoy learning.
