Why did you choose to attend The Bay School?
I chose Bay because it is more project based, and the relationship between teachers and students is really good. Bay has tutorial, which I think is really helpful and a useful opportunity.
What has been your favorite class taken at Bay?
I don't really have a favorite class right now. For me it depends on the teachers, but I would have to say math is my favorite class because challenges it me. We figure out how things work instead of just having the work told to me. We also do a lot of collaborative work, which helps me meet new people.
What is your favorite part of the Bay community?
My favorite part of the Bay community is how every grade mixes with other grades and everyone is friends.
What has been your most memorable experience at Bay?
My most memorable experience at Bay was during the Kezar game at the beginning of the school because so many people came out to support Bay and their community.
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 that it is good to become friends with other people, and it's ok to find a new group of friends. You won't be friends with the people you first started off with, and that's fine. I would also tell myself to try new things.
What advice would you give to prospective students who are considering Bay?
I would tell them to go with their gut and the school that they think would be the best school for them.
