Why did you choose to attend The Bay School?
I really liked the community and inter-grade relationships.


What has been your favorite class taken at Bay?
I don’t have a favorite class. All of my classes challenge me in the best way, and they make me feel like I’m learning to the best of my ability.


What is your favorite part of the Bay community?
Everyone. The students, staffulty, everything.


What has been your most memorable experience at Bay?
I remember at my midterm conference, Dr. Piccioni told me that I should “embrace being a know-it-all because everyone in your classes, especially the juniors, will admire and respect it.” This completely changed my view and helped me improve in my classes so much.


Looking back at your first year at Bay, what you would you tell yourself on the first day of school?
Chill out. You’re too stressed, just be yourself. You don’t need to change to become someone you’re not just to please people. Find the people who make you happy.


What advice would you give to prospective students who are considering Bay?
Nothing is final. One decision won’t decide if you’re getting into a school or not, and if you don’t get in, it’s not because of something you did. The admissions teams at all schools work to make sure you’re getting into the school that is the best fit for you, so just be yourself.
