I'm at my last year at Bay and it's an amazing school. Great academics, teachers, students, sports, etc. I really recommend this school. Also, this school is just as great as Mark Twain so don't get let down because I did but you won't regret Bay :)

I'm a 5th grader, and I'm going into Bay. Overall, I think the school is pretty good, and I give it a high ranking. Mark is also another overrated school. Just the area is a kind of off. I will take other's words and enjoy my time there when I get in :)
