Wow, just amazing this school can be. My son gets bullied, tells the adults and what happens? Nothing! I myself had to step in because they would not do anything! You and your child will not feel welcome and will hate this school, never ever go here EVER!
My daughter was Choiced to this school this year, and so far I feel she is receiving a much better education than she received at the middle school she attended last year. Based on the fact that all the middle schools in the Christina School District failed the state testing for 2009-2010 school year. The school uniform isn't a problem for me of course a pre-teen doesn't want to wear a uniform but tell me what school in delaware on the middle school level doesn't require a student to wear one... children are in school for a learning experience not to walk the runway,
My son enjoys the teachers and his friends at school. He comes from a private school and has adjusted well into the public school. He is consistently on the honor roll and plans to achieve this goal annually. I truly enjoy the afterschool program called 'Achievement Matters.' The only complaint that I have is that there isn't much homework.
this school is horrible! my twin daughters in the 7th grade hated it! they worried more bout the uniform then their education. its much better for them wearin the stuff they have then buyin more and more uniforms.
I personally like the pressure that is put on the kids at Bayard this year. The reason I say this is because all of these kids need discipline. If your kid is dressed according to the dress code there will not be a problem.
This Is the most worst I have ever had to deal with. I have never seen a school more focus on what a child is wearing than there academics. I have 2 children that attend this school and they never talk about how well they do in class only about what they may get suspended for. The administration staff are like children. I am choice my children out of there.
I would say this is one of the worst schools my 7th Grade child has ever been too. All they use is negative reinforcement which makes it a horrible learning environment.
My child has hated this school from the start. He is an honor student and does not feel challenged. There are constant behavior issues and disruptions that are usually dealt with by punishing the group of students rather than holding the student responsible accountable for his actions. The leadership in the school is lacking and unresponsive to student needs, which is a shame since there are some really good teachers at the school. As a parent you do not feel welcome.
Bayard Elementary is a wonderful learning institution. I feel that the teachers and school administration have created an atmosphere in which children are taught about respect for authority and each other. I am glad to know that my child is challenged to grow academically, rewarded for outstanding achievement, and made to feel as significant as each and every one of his peers are. I am also glad to see the diversity of the student body at Bayard. The school both encourages and embraces parental involvement and participation. And I am very glad to feel confident that my child is in a school that has taken the steps necessary to ensure his safety at all times.
