About Bay View

Welcome to Bay View School

We are a multicultural, neighborhood school that offers an enriched educational experience to all students, kindergarten through fifth grade. Our warm, welcoming, active school community offers many opportunities for families to be involved in their child’s school experience. We have many parents volunteering in the classroom, serving on one of our parent committees, family dances, a family art day, a winter book sale, and a popular Spring Carnival. At Bay View, there is a place for everyone to belong.

Our primary goal for your child is academic success. Regardless of language, learning style, or choice of program, your child will be challenged and receive the full curriculum for their grade level. We offer differentiated lessons for all ability levels and small group instruction for literacy and math. Taught by highly qualified teachers, our academic program includes:
  • a comprehensive mathematics program that goes beyond computation to focus on problem solving.
  • Differentiated reading instruction in grades 1 - 5 in our Walk to Read program
  • hands-on classroom science instruction, supplemented by a school-wide Life Lab science and nutrition program, taught in our beautiful campus garden.
  • multi-media art instruction taught by credentialed art teachers, in addition to art created in the classroom.
  • weekly vocal and instrumental music instruction for fourth and fifth graders.
  • Physical Education lessons that emphasize individual skill development as well as teamwork and cooperation.
  • a spacious library media center, staffed by a credentialed librarian, boasting a collection of over 25,000 books, a kitchen, an art center, and more than a dozen networked computers, used during the school day by students, and after school by children and their families.
  • a state of the art computer lab that allows for both intervention and enrichment for our students via networked programs, internet access, keyboarding, and digital media instruction for first through fifth grade students.
  • Development Lessons; English Learners receive daily English Language Development lessons.
  • a language arts program that integrates oral language, reading, writing, and social studies instruction.
  • a recess coach who provides active engagement and play opportunities for all students during break times.
  • two program choices for early literacy: traditional kinder classes, where all children first learn to read in English, and our Puentes program, in which our Spanish speaking children first learn to read in Spanish.
