Free thinking is destroyed. Get ready to have your child become a amorphous blob who does not understand how to process information. I went to private school until fresman year then I came to bayside. IT LOOKED AND FELT LIKE PRISION! Teacher run their classrooms based on emotion and states curriculum, you do the math. A handful of teachers needs to leave to school so it can become a complete cesspool of authoritarianism and so called opinion based knowledge. They train you to not question their answers even when they are incorrect. The moto for the school is, " if you never pass 1 test or quiz and do all your homework you will pass my class". After hearing that from everyone of my teachers I knew that they were just training people to not understand, but just to complete task without cognitive ascension and to lull me into acting as if I was at a Ford plant working the assembly line. Homework was repetative and pointless, teachers noted what pages for us to find the answers. Unfortunately if you want you child to become a better individual avoid this school and others like it.

Bayside is doing very well. We have been making history so far this year. Football has been outstanding as well as academic qualities. Fundamentally it has gotten a bit elementary. Teachers are just to picky about standing in the halls and its just a little annoying. Otherwise its pretty chill

Bayside is great. I just feel like the administration has changed and made student lide more middle school like. It doesnt feel like high school anymore, or like it was when i was a freshmen. It changed a lot however the students keep baysides traditions alive

Bayside has one of the best honors program in any of the high schools in brevard county. They helped me get into a program where I will graduate with my associates degree. The counselors work around your needs and help you as much as possible. The sports programs are amazing.. our football team won the first game of the year. Overall.. I would never want to go any where else. I love bayside high. GO BEARS!

Bayside High is very safe. Whenever there is a fight, the deans quickly extinguishes the raucous within minutes. Not only that the school also is an 'A' school.

Bayside is okay. . .sports are okay too. . . .it just seems like something is missing though.The band on the other hand is awesome! The drumline is amazing also.

I can assure you that all the field trips provide quite an educuational experience, even an enlightening one. Take the trip to Washington D.C. for example, the memorials teach their own lessons of a unique kind that you can't get in a classroom or from pictures. Overall, Bayside is an excellent school. We were overcrowded last year, and as a result many a scuffle occurred, but all in all, if you had any common sense, the year went by as usual.

Bayside High is a fantastic school. I'd recommend it highly. It offers a safe environment and a healthy learning experience.

Great news for incoming freshman,06-07,a new 9th grade center being created with team teaching, block scheduling for the 9th grade, remediation for 10th grade fcats, more opportunities for electives, and honors class's too. Then 10-12 will be on 7 period school day thinking out of the box is wonderful for all kids.

Great school! They have set very high standards for the students. They are very strict, yet fair with the discipline which makes for a good learning environment. I feel that the teachers are good role models for the students. Parental involvement is good. Availability of electives is 'fair' at best. Foreign language is out of the question for the younger students-forcing them to take in their sophmore or junior years. Sports teams are good, with great coaches-but school spirit (especially at football games) needs to improve! My children feel VERY safe at Bayside High School which makes it easier for them, as well as myself!

I attend Bayside High School and our dress code is one of the strictest codes in the county of Brevard and most of us do get into trouble. Maybe you should observe the school and then realize that most of us are covered and it is kind of hard for a few administors to look after almost 2000 kids. Parents are suppose to know the dress code too and have their kids follow it. Bayside is an awesome school, sometimes more strict than I like, but it is an amazing school. You learn a lot, the campus is clean and pretty, the teachers all care, and we have an awesome staff.

Bayside is a good school but there is room for improvement. I especailly object to the inapporpriate field trips taht are offered such as the ROTC trip to Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Otherwise, I think the lacking dress code enforcement is the worst problem. There are too many sexually provocative outfits wandering around unchecked. If the parents have to leave work a couple times to return a student home to change, that will wake them up ane get these young adults to dress properly.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
