Bayfield is a great school for well rounded learning and extracurricular activities. The small school size contributes to more of a family feel with all of your peers and opportunities to excel in sports and clubs are supported in full force. My graduating class had a nearly 100% graduation rate and every one of my peers I have talked to are finding success either in college or in the working world.

I absolutely love going to Bayfield. The acedemic program is great. Both the music and sports programs are well ahead of their game as well. I love how at Bayfield, everybody loves everybody, and bullying and hazing are hard to be found. We are all friends with are peers, versus a big city school where you only know a select amount of people. Here, you know everyone's name; it's like a big family. The gifted program, could be better, yes, but for such a small town, it's fairly good. The years I've been at BHS have been the best years of my life. I love the community and the people who surround and support me. :)

BHS is a fine school. BHS is not 100% about academic excellence and 'accelerated learning' but as the parent of a profoundly gifted student, I appreciate the school's approach to nurturing the whole student, not just the test scores.

Bayfield High has a rigorous curriculum and compassionate teachers. Students consistently score in the top percentiles on national tests.

Bayfield HS is a terrible school environment. You will receive no education whatsoever because every class is taught at an elementary level. Advanced courses are not available until the junior year and even then they are no more of a challenge than the standard courses. If your child is college bound I would recommend taking them to a private school in Durango.
