About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Bay Haven Charter Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Bay Haven Charter Academy had 11 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Florida average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Bay Haven Charter Academy Reviews
I had to pull one of my children out of Bay Haven. He struggled there, but makes straight A's in honor classes at a regular public school and is thriving now. We pulled our hair out for years with the stress Bay Haven puts on its students. There are good things about it, which is why we have other children there still. Few, if any, fights, clean campus, little cursing, involved parents and good communication between parents and teachers. I really like the new principal too. However, if your child struggles at a regular school, the last thing you want to do is put him/her at this school.
We have a high achieving school that promotes 'high expectations and high achievement'. We are led by an amazing principal, Dr. Kitts who is the rock of our school. Students' needs are put first via administrative decisins, faculty's differentiated instruction, parental support, and by raising the bar.
