Overall, we have had a wonderful experience at Bay Park and are always trying to recruit other families to join the Stingray community. The teachers are very responsive to each child’s needs. The parents to work to make the school a better place as many are active in fundraising as well as providing hands on help to the school. The children appear happy and connected, all while demonstrating substantial academic and social-emotional growth.
Our daughter arrived at the school halfway the year. She was welcomed by staff, teachers and students in a very positive way. In the beginning she struggled with the language, but with the extra help and the patience of both teachers and students she overcame this fast.I have never seen her so happy going to school, making new friends. She volunteered in the library and other places, and they made her feel really appreciated.The teacher is exigent in a good way. Some homework, but never too much or without any sense. Lot of nice and relevant projects. Also many field trips, which she loved! The PTA is very active and has reached a lot of good things for the school. Extra art classes, music lessons, and all activities related to the graduation. Also the physical installations are well in order. There is a very positive, open atmosphere in the school. Parents very involved.
Our son has started Kinder at Bay Park in 2015/16 school year and we have so far been very impressed with this school. What I love the most about Bay Park is that it's full of kind, respectful, and happy kids. There's a community feel to the school mainly fueled by PTA but also a solid principal that has been there for a long time. A lot of families attend this school through the choice program (including us) but that does not take away from the neighborhood feel of the school. Our son started reading just few months into Kindergarten and I have to say most of it due to what he learned at school. The other thing I like is that it's a very active/healthy school. There's a jogging club, lots of sports enrichment and the after school teachers play with the kids outside for hours. There are other practical considerations that makes the school a good fit for us as two working parents:- Onsite before and after care program with coverage in all the half days. - Plenty of after school enrichment activities kids can participate in.- Good start time- Easy access from I-5 and plenty of parking around the school. The only things I wish the school would improve concerns safety. There is a buzzer installed to get through during school hours but no identification required to be admitted. In addition, there are a TON of fundraising throughout the year. i understand this makes the school better for our children but it's so hard to keep up with all of them. I wish there was a suggested yearly donation instead that would compensate for skipping the others. (Of course all fundraising is optional)
The principal is a good politician, but our family needed a good principal. With poor leadership, no school can achieve greatness.
