Bay recognizes that positive and effective leadership comes in many forms and that you don’t have to look, act, or think a certain way in order to be a leader.
In daily school life, we cultivate an environment in which students can lead in informal ways. Whether it’s speaking at Morning Meeting or offering feedback during their conferences, students are free to speak about their experiences, which helps to teach them to lead by example and inspires others to make their voices heard in our community. Clubs and affinity groups offer additional avenues for students to be active in issues that are important to them.
We also have formal programs designed to deepen students' self-knowledge and confidence. They develop skills that are meaningful to them while learning responsibility.
Student Leadership Groups
While we do not have a traditional student government, Bay students take responsibility in some important areas of school life. Here are ways to contribute your time and talent to the Bay community:
- Admissions Ambassadors: Work with our admissions department as a student tour leader and reception host.
- Captains’ Council: Learn to become an effective athletics leader on and off the field.
- Community Restoration: Ensure that the student voice is represented in the consideration of the school’s response to disciplinary matters, and offers restorative options when addressing concerns related to student conduct
- MARMOTs: Provide critical support to the technology department (ask our IT manager what MARMOT stands for...).
- Student Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity Council (SEID): Inform and educate the Bay community about diversity, equity, and inclusion while promoting competent global citizenship within the community.
- School Life Committee: Help plan community-wide events and be an important bridge between students and administration to improve the life of the school.
- Student Interview Committee: Represent the student voice and shape the school by conducting interviews and offering feedback during the hiring of new Bay faculty and staff.
