Bay View High School is undergoing a transformation that will begin taking effect in the 2013-14 school year! The school will focus on creativity and innovation, building upon strong science/technology/engineering/arts/math (STEAM) programming. That focus will include project-based learning that relies upon and builds student knowledge  across multiple subject areas. The plan also includes more rigorous expectations for graduation. Some changes will take place in the 2013-14 school year, with  full implementation beginning in 2014-15. The school will also phase out its existing middle-school grades and accept a smaller 9th-grade class for the upcoming year. Students and staff interested in continuing at the school will be asked to recommit to the new program. Students new to the school will be asked to commit to the new Bay View expectations.

Applicants are encouraged to contact the school to learn more about these expectations. Our program will build upon some of Bay View’s strengths: the Building/Architecture/Technology (BAT) Academy, Project Lead the Way, strong arts programming and Advanced Placement coursework. AP courses may be taken, which can result in both high school and college credit. Bay View has active partnerships with building and trade unions as well as Discovery World.
