I am a former parent of Naples Bayside academy. My child was there on a inter-district transfer from the time my child started in Kindergarten and the whole time my child and I were made to feel like red haired step children and complete outsiders. True I didn't live in Naples or Belmont Shore, but in the same token, why take in new comers if they are not going to be accepted and given the same opportunities as all of the other children(even if they are not Naples children) The staff directly and indirectly harrassed not only me and my child, but I have witnessed harrassment to other children as well. This I feel happened because of my race, my lack of income and because I didn't fit into the mold of what the staff thought I should be in order to be qualified to be a resident at the-school.
My experience with Naples has been outstanding. Being the responsible single parent (Father) of a child in the second grade is a tremendous responsibility. The staff at Naples immediately made me feel comfortable and welcomed. My son requires additional special tutoring and the treatment and attention he has received has been outstanding. I'm very happy to have my son attend Naples and also impressed with the professionalism of the entire staff there. Kirk Bechtold
My child has had an excellent experience at Naples Elementary. The new principal is very involved at even occasionally fills in for teachers so she gets to know the children better. She has strict standards for grading and behavior and never lets an opportunity pass to reinforce the school standards. We often comment that Naples is like a throwback to the 50s.
