Why did you choose to attend The Bay School?
I chose Bay because of the science program and the ability to personalize my learning. My brother also went to Bay, and his experience influenced by decision to attend as well. 

What has been your favorite class taken at Bay?
Biology 2. It was an awesome environment and experience - I learned about really interesting topics. We did a lot of hands-on labs and dissections! 

What is your favorite part of the Bay community?
My favorite part of the community is how friendly everyone is and the size of the community. The smallness leads to being able to know a lot of people and being able to interact with them.
What has been your most memorable experience at Bay?
Watching my friends participate in the lip sync battle.
How has Bay prepared you for college and life beyond?
Through various self-guided learning opportunities, I have been able to understand the effectiveness of time management.
What advice would you give to prospective students who are considering Bay?
Follow your interests, and don't be discouraged by thinking you have to follow a strict four year plan; interests change and the ability to accept change will cultivate a good learning experience.
