We love Bayside Elementary! We moved here from out of state and I was very impressed from the moment I walked in the door. The curriculum is challenging, the teachers are dedicated and if you go there more than once, everyone remembers you AND knows who your child is. Accomplishments are recognized and rewarded here and parental involvement is actively encouraged. Communication between school and home is excellent. I will be sad when my son has to graduate in two years!

We love this school! I am involved with my daughter's education and expect the best for my child. We have been blessed with Mrs. Bocella, Ms. Stratton, and Mrs. Malley. The gifted program that Ms. Madel teaches is fantastic. Mrs. Malley has made some tough issues easier for us to deal with. We will miss this school dearly because we are moving out of the state. Ms. Tina we will miss you too. I think the key to any childs education is parental involvement. The score on this site is misleading as my child has exceeded in all areas. We had her tested for the visual arts program this year at ODC. She tested 'gifted'. I am sorry that my daughter will miss out on this great opportunity. Thank you Bayside for three great years! Go Bulldogs!

I have been very pleased with my son's teacher Mrs. Drumm. She is a 3rd grade teacher at Bayside Elementary and won teacher of the year for 2005. She really cares about her students and goes the extra mile for them.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
