Why did you choose to attend The Bay School?
When I visited I felt a sense of community I didn't feel at other schools; I loved seeing the morning meeting and class environments. I felt like I belonged.
What has been your favorite class taken at Bay?
My favorite class so far has definitely been Spanish. I loved my teacher, and we did many fun activities to help us learn. I liked this because we got to have interactive activities, like songs and games, instead of just completing worksheets.
What is your favorite part of the Bay community?
I love how everyone is so friendly and nice, even students in other grades. When I came to Bay, I was scared of upperclassmen in my classes, but they were all so open and friendly to me from the beginning.
What has been your most memorable experience at Bay?
On the first day of school, I walked into the building, and I was immediately welcomed. Throughout the day, I made so many connections with people, and it helped me feel at home.
You have successfully completed your first year as a Bay student. Looking back at your year, what would you tell yourself on the first day of school?
I would tell myself it's okay to not have everything figured out. Looking at other people, they seem to have everything together, but everyone is just as nervous as you.
What advice would you give to prospective students who are considering Bay?
Do what you feel is right. It may be hard, but it's so important to think of yourself and not what other people are saying.
