Bayview is a wonderful place for students, staff, and families! This year our theme is TEAM Bayview! We pride ourselves on creating a warm, welcoming school environment for everyone! Our Bayview Staff does an amazing job at building relationships with their students and families. A warm school climate is our trademark.

Our students are given many opportunities for 21st century learning with our technology initiatives, Balanced Literacy Approach, hands-on science activities, and new Innovation Lab. These hands-on learning opportunities personalize learning and increase engagement for our students. All of our students go to music, physical education, art, and Spanish on a rotating schedule. Our fifth-grade students have the wonderful opportunity to join band. We believe that giving our students the opportunity to showcase their learning is vital. We love to celebrate success in a variety of ways!
