Think twice and then send your child somewhere else...
I attended this school's Open House last week as my child is starting middle school next year. We were horrified and laughed all the way home about how disorganized and laid back ALL of the staff was. As a parent, it seemed that the staff was very immature, cracking jokes at the prospective students and smoking outside the main enterance with security guards discussing personal relationships... unreal. Now, I'm not saying relaxing outside with a smoke is bad, but right at the begining of OPEN HOUSE when this teacher should have been welcoming prospective students and TRYING to make a good impression on parents? Overall, the school and stafff seemed very disinterested in impressing anyone. Classrooms and school environment was shabby and in poor shape. Didn't seem like any of the staff even wanted to be there. As a very late Open House, Nov 25, I was expecting Bay Academy to be the "best for last". A horrible experience and I would caution anyone thinking about this school to think twice. Presentations were old and not relevant to what they are focusing on now, e.g. Science. Staff was condescending and seemed annoyed to have to stay so late. Don't send your child here.
This school needs cleaner envronment. The chalk board and desks are dirty and it can be hard to concentrate and I dont like how we have to carry boookbags.
i think bay academy is very very nice. the only thing i don't like is how we have to carry our bags/books everywhere we go.our backs and shoulders start to hurt time by time and day by day. they should have lockers.they only have lockers for the gymnasium
