Why did you choose to attend The Bay School?
The main reason I chose to attend The Bay School was because I wanted to be in an environment where I felt supported by my peers instead of feeling like I had to compete with them.

What has been your favorite class taken at Bay?
My favorite class that I have taken at Bay has been Advanced Composition. This class changed the way that I think about writing, and has helped me to utilize grammar as a stylistic tool as opposed to just a set of rules.

What is your favorite part of the Bay community?
My favorite part about the Bay community is how open it is; I find myself sitting at a new table and with new people almost every single day. The entire community feels like a big family, and even though most people have their core friends, everybody meshes really well together.

What has been your most memorable experience at Bay? How has Bay prepared you for college and life beyond?
My most memorable experiences at Bay have all been within the amazing theatre community. I have so much fun in every production and have made countless memories that will stick with me.

How has Bay prepared you for college and life beyond?
I think the number one way that Bay has prepared me for life beyond high school is that it has taught me to advocate for myself and my peers. I am so lucky to be in a place where student voices are encouraged and considered, and knowing how to speak up for myself is incredibly important especially as I enter larger communities outside of Bay.

What advice would you give to prospective students who are considering Bay?
Come in to Bay willing to learn from everyone around you. This school is full of passionate students and teachers who all have their own niches, and who will teach you about anything from social injustices to how to most efficiently tie your shoes.
