Why did you choose to attend The Bay School?
I selected Bay because I felt a sense of community that I hadn't felt at any other school. It was the school I pictured myself the most!

What has been your favorite class taken at Bay?
Humanities because I have the opportunity to learn about real world issues and give my honest opinion about them.

What is your favorite part of the Bay community?
My favorite part of the Bay community is the student-teacher relationships. To me, I think that it is one of the most special things about Bay. Every single teacher at Bay wants what is best for you and is willing to talk about anything.

What has been your most memorable experience at Bay?
When one of my friends was going through something this year, I wanted to get her help. I did this by talking to her parents and my adviser. Through the whole process, my adviser was always there to talk and gave me great advice! She still checks in one me at least once a week.
Looking back on your first year at Bay, what would you tell yourself on the first day of school?
I would tell myself to not be so scared of upperclassmen because a lot of them are actually really nice! 
What advice would you give to prospective students who are considering Bay?
I would tell them to just be themselves throughout the whole admissions process!
