My grand daughter started Bay in 2013, she had a lot of personal problems. I can't thank Mrs. Grisham, Mrs Christian and Mrs Laura for all they have done. They have been so patient and caring towards her. With my granddaughter going through what she has they all have made sure she's been protected mentally and physically while helping keep her grades up (she's doing very well with her grades). I can't say enough about this school, thank y'all so much, you're the best! Sincerely, Kathy Bailey

First graders were above national percentile in every category on the Iowa State Test, and their scores ranged from 67% to 86% for school year 2005-2006! Check it out! A small school that places strong emphasis on the individual child. With our new Superintendent, Bay can only get better. Parents, teachers, administrators and students all work together for higher standards. No student gets lost in numbers. Teacher take the extra initiative to get to know the student and the students family. Other grades also did well on the test, I just didn t study the scores as closely.
