Why did you choose to attend The Bay School?
I chose to attend Bay because the teachers were really engaged in their classes when I attended my visit day.

What has been your favorite class taken at Bay?
My favorite class so far has been Chemistry. We had the freedom to create and conduct our own labs. Overall, it was an extremely fun class!

What is your favorite part of the Bay community?
You can have an interesting conversation with just about everyone!

How has Bay prepared you for college and life beyond?
The college counselors have helped answer any question I've had about college. And most importantly, Bay has taught me how to become comfortable with how to write analytical papers, public speaking, and how to ask teachers for help.

What advice would you give to prospective students who are considering Bay?
Make sure each answer on your application gives a piece of who you are. Admission directors want to get to know the real you.
