What Makes Bayside Teachers Special?

Teachers at Bayside Academy are true models of lifelong learning. They grow each year, seek out new instructional methods, challenge themselves and their peers, and reflect alongside their students. They recognize the value of an independent school education and lead their students in pursuing challenges, contemplating on their successes and shortcomings, and developing as engaged global citizens. Our faculty members are comfortable with the changing landscape of education. With a future-focused mindset, they adapt and differentiate their instruction to move all learners forward.
