Nice kids, nice teachers, but no leadership. The principal is not qualified for the position, runs things in a lazy beaurocratic manner, and when asked basic pedagogical questions she draws a blank and feels entitled to give wrong answers. Communication is abysmal and principal does not appreciate the need to create and inspire community participation to achieve success; she keeps everybody shut out and in the dark. If all you are looking for from your elementary school is daycare, then this is the place. If you expect competent leadership or inspiration stay far away.

horrible school. unprofessional leader, school doesnt have any resources for kids who truly need extra help. moved out of town bc of the unacceptable things that went on there. i know of many parents who feel this way. my child was bullied, and picked on and it was never handled. calls to the principle never helped either. after numerous talks with the superintendent, he asked if i would like the option of sending my child to another school in the district. he apologized for the lack of effort that was put in by staff members there and let me know he would help in anyway he could. we finally moved mid year and my kids couldnt be happier, as the same goes for my husband and i. its a great feeling to know your kids are being cared for and bayview was 100% not the school for that. very disappointing, but glad my daughter made some forever friends. at least she took that from there.

I love Bayview Elementary School. I went there as a child and now both of my sons will be going there. They have a great curricula, great principal, great teachers and support staff. It is a great community to be in. My son loves going there and we couldn't be happier. We especially love the Principal, Dr. Andl. I have never seen a principal quite as dedicated and supportive to the students, teachers, and staff as he is. He sets the bar for other principals and I don't believe that Bayview would be as great as it is without him.

I am a Bayview School alum and now my son is attending. In fact, he is in the very same Kindergarten classroom I had as a child. It is a thrill for me that my son can benefit from the same wonderful education I received at Bayview. I was quite surprised at the level of academic expectation in Kindergarten. My son loves school, loves his teacher (Mrs. Massell), and is having a successful year. I agree with the other reviewers that the principal, Dr. Andl, and the PTA are both outstanding. The entire staff of educators at Bayview is committed to providing the very best education for its students.

Bayview is such a great school. I currently have 3 children attending. The principal, Dr. Andl, is great with the kids. He is always involved with everything the kids do. I have nothing but praise for all of the teachers my children have had. The kids recite the Bayview pledge every morning and they enforce respect & have a no bullying policy. The PTA is great & plans alot of fun activites for the kids throughout the year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
