My kids attended this school a few years back and loved it! We are a military family and unfortunately have to relocate every few years and with all of the schools my children have been in all over the U.S., Bayview Elementary ranks as their favorite! The staff is phenomenal, very caring and highly qualified. Our fondest memories were of Bayview Elementary!

I have had three children grace the halls of BayView, and in the past 11 years since we first began our journey we have had an overall outstanding experience. The teachers and principal really seem to know the kids well, not just as faces in a crowd but as individuals. We've utilized the special ed program and the ASD program and have found both very helpful. When I've had concerns arise, they were addressed promptly and appropriately. I feel like my role as a parent is respected, and my opinion matters. My only criticism is that the class sizes tend to be larger than what I think is optimal. But overall, BayView has been a wonderful school!

I love the Bay View School forest and the staff at this school. My daughter is thrilled with her teachers, the computers, and the woods!

In 2012-2013 Minnesota used the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment-II (MCA-II) to test students in math in grade 11.
