I love this preschool! My children are well cared for and they actually teach the kids in addition to watching them for the day. A little expensive, but well worth it!

My son has attended Baylife Academy for three years. Everyone has their own experience I recognize this but I don't understand the previous poster's comment so I wanted to go out of my usual mode and post. I am actually the parent of 3 sons ( 9 - 22) which all have significant disabilities of different degrees/areas & we have spent many years in public school & other private schools. I am well educated on student's rights & the public school system process concerning IDEA & escalating issues to OCR or FLDOE. Baylife has impressed me. It's a small school it does not have the budget like public school's do. However, I haven't found this impact my son. The staff do work very hard and care greatly about their student's and are equipped to educate children w/ disabilities. I have found them more than willing to listen & ready to work with me about my child.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
