Bay View Elementary School Reviews

By a Parent on

Bay View School lacks essential funding (no Gym,Music or Art teachers-the PTA pays for this). Some of the teachers are awesome but many are horrible!
The principal is nice but very indifferent to the situations that plague the school. There is horrible bullying and theft that goes on and she could care less. If you complain, she will nod her head in empathy but then nothing will be done and she will not follow up with you. So glad i pulled my kids out of that school!

Bay View School is a great community of teachers, parents and students.
