Bay View Middle and High School 2

The math program sucks. They teach the kids to use calculators and when they get to college they can't do math by hand, which is what is required! Most of the testing is open book. It is way different from when I went to school and had to use my brain!

I attended BVHS in the late '90's. Back then, I loved attending Bay View. I was in the Navy JROTC program, Band, Track, Tennis, and the Business co-op program. I am disappointed to see the NJROTC program is no longer offered and to hear all of the negative comments about what Bay View has become. My graduating class had a lot of school pride/spirit and worked hard to achieve success. I enjoyed my time at BVHS and am proud to be an alumni, despite the reputation that the school has earned over the years.

Hello I'm a parent of a new student(2010) at Bay View I must say as of now, I'm really liking Bay View seeing that I have a first cousin too graduate and was involved in the law program and now is a Milwaukee detective and his high school sweet heart also of Bay View high school is a nurse practicer a step away from a doctor so I know and see how Good Bay View have/had taught them. It's what you put into your education to find what you get out of it at the end ,and as far as the teachers' I'm my daughter first teacher so I the parent taught her how to be a 'great student' for life not Bay View they're just adding on to what I've started. Thanks Bay View from a parent that cares about all not just mines.

My child was a freshman at BV last year and when I first dropped him off, I was thinking 'Oh my gawd, what have I done'! Most kids were dressed inappropriately for school. Kids are still outside school even after school starts just 'hangin out'. The academics were FAIR, but my son didn't learn much. He liked most of his teachers. Coaches are supportive and don't tolerate bad grades or behavior. My son is in a new school (out of state) for his 2nd year and he knows NOTHING compared to the other kids.

Im not a parent, but a current student at BVHS. I did learn alot, but because I payed attention and done my work in class unlike the rest. Its not the teachers, its the students who make it horrible. The teachers do their job, but choose not to deal with the ignorance the class displays. Overall, the staff is great, especially the guidance counselors.

I spent four years at bay view high school. 80% of the day in classrooms doing nothing. The school was a joke. Also I was in the P.A.T. program. Program for the academically talented. I probably had 3 teachers that actually taught the students. Please dont send your kids there!
