My son attended high school and loved the baseball program. He had a hard time adjusting like any one changing schools but made friends and had two great years.
A year ago, I could not of ever imagined sending my kids anywhere else. BCS was like an extended part of the family. Fast forward a year and I can't get my son out of there fast enough. He learned to read in K4. The K5 teacher brought out the best of every child. He loved going everyday in 1st and wrote the best little stories. 2nd has been a joke! Fill in the blank worksheets and tests. He has never strung together more than two sentences. He is going to need tutoring just to attend public school next year. The kids are allowed to yell and push each other. BCS has earned a reputation of sacrificing the good kids in the attempt to rehabilitate the bad. Well, they earned it! Many 'affluent ' families have left because of this. Big finanical problems. Sorry BCS, You dissapointed me.
My child has attended BCS for the past 5 years. We have seen a a change in the way the school has been run, as well as a drastic shift in the overall system. It has been somewhat disappointing. With several headmaster changes, it has affected the overall school performance and attitude. The current administration is not teacher friendly and placates parents. Per several other comments, there is favoritism displayed blantantly towards certain families with a higher income level. They do lack extracurricular activities, with pre/post school care programs not at the level they should be. The lunches still need improvement. Yes, you donate or participate in fundraisers (1 per quarter) but most schools execute these same types of activities. There are some excellent teachers that provide education. The K4, K5 and 2nd grade teachers are incredible. We will not enroll our child next year at BCS.
I have been a teacher in both public and private schools for the last 20 years. I taught at Bayshore School for 5 years while my own children were attending. Never have I worked with such loving, caring and committed teachers and personnel! My hat goes off to all of you who continue to touch the lives of those you serve and for serving such an AWESOME God!
I have a 6 year old and a 4 year old attending Bayshore currently. Compared to Providence Christian School in Brandon, this school is fantastic! The teachers are awesome and my children LOVE to go to school. Yes, they do ask for money a lot, and do lots of fund raisers, but what school doesn't do that....
this school is deplorable the facilities are disgusting and all of the teachers are favoritist to the kids with money. the school food is disgusting and it is un nutritional
I've gone to Bayshore since pre-school. I am about to graduate high school now. I left during middle school, but eventually came back. Why did I come back? Simply because BCS has a good, family environment, great teachers that genuinely care, amazing sports and school spirit, and yes, you also get a good education. Many students, like myself, have taken part in Dual Enrollment and AP courses. I would never want to graduate from anywhere else. except college. :)
Bayshore Christian School is the best place to send your child for preschool. Two of my children have gone to the preschool and all read at age 4. My two year old will begin the preschool program next year.
I did not like this school at all. I went here for the eighth grade and trust me, this school is not for kids who want to do anything extra-curricular. 'New Kids' are alienated and picked on. Favoritism among teachers, terrible lunch program, lack of money, and terrible social environment are just a few of the problems this school has.
This is a fantastic school in every area: Pre school, Elementary, Middle schol and High school. The curriculum is challenging throughout. The leadership is excellent, warm, exciting, compassionate, encouraging and academic expectations are high. My children all experienced wonderful learning situations with their teachers. There is good parent-teacher communication. I'm allowed to participate if I have time in my schedule. The school is safety oriented. Christian values are both taught and caught. Bible knowledge is applied to young lives. 5 stars!
Great academics and disclipine with inclusion of christian values. My daughter was 4 when she began, I am so very pleased.
Good quality of enducation with emphasis on christian values. High parent involvement and average availability of extracurricular activities.
My daughter has attended Bayshore for 3 years. Academically, they are have a great curriculum and she is way ahead in nearly every category. The staff is very friendly and they have a long heritage in Tampa. Some issues are lack of activities due to school size, favoritism shown to students of families with influence.
