    "Both my kids currently go to BPE and we have been very, very happy there. Overall, the teachers are great (there are a few mediocre ones, but I think that's true everywhere), and the principal is pro-active and works with parents to make it a better school. She has also hired some great teachers over the past couple of years, so I think the direction is very good. The thing that stood out for me starting there is how involved many of the parents are. Lots of in-class volunteering, and the PTA fundraises and organizes a lot of 'extras' that you don't get with a less involved populace. Overall, really happy and we love the community there!"

    "We LOVE this school! There is a real sense of community here and it has a very active parent community. The teachers we've had and have met are wonderful and caring and willing to go the extra mile. I read another review that said our school lost 8 teachers last year. That is simply untrue. As parents, we were sad to lose 3 teachers this past year to retirement, one to a career change and another great one to a speciality interest school. We've also had good communication with the principal. It would be great if there were more art and music available than just what the parent groups can provide that would be my biggest change more programs in the arts."

    "With a child who's only in his second year of school, I cannot say that one school is better than another. Some of the teachers at Bay Park seem to really care, while most seem to be either new or ready to retire... some coming off as just plain rude. Out of the twenty something teachers, about 8 or so did not return from last year. The reasoning for this was not made public, but it could be because they were so unhappy with our new Principal, much like so many parents seem to be. There are some issues with bullies and as recently seen on the news, even a child 'escaping' and found several blocks away."

    "I have a third grader at Bay Park and a sixth grader who graduated from Bay Park last year, and I've been extremely happy with the school. The teachers and staff have created a strong sense of community that is evident among the students and their families. There are a lot of very strong teachers and many activities available through PTA and the Foundation. Both my children have been in the GATE program and have been challenged academically."

    "After having 2 children attend K-5 at BPE, I can say that it used to be a fantastic school. However, under the "direction" of the current principal it has changed drastically, and NOT for the better. In fact, had it not been for the teaching staff, I would have moved my child to another school for 4th and 5th grades. The current principal has done NOTHING to encourage community involvement. In fact, the school's enrollment is way down, and it has lost most or all of the partnerships established by the previous principal. Additionally, she has taken a school that had gone to 75%-85% paper-free communication back to relying nearly 100% on paper delivered by young children. BPE's motto used to be "Every day is Earth Day at Bay Park," definitely NOT the case any longer. If your child is not good about bringing documents home, there is virtually ZERO communication. The principal refuses to utilize the ConnectEd System or email blasts. In fact, has been very dismissive whenever it's been brought up with her. Interesting, since she claimed to be computer savvy when she came to BPE. I am so glad that my children are done. Very sad to see what's become of what was once a wonderful school."
