The Upper School (7-12)

In the Upper School, we continue to cultivate the positive habits of mind and love for learning that students bring with them from their Intermediate School experience. We prioritize a holistic education grounded in the core values of our school. Upper School students expand their footprints on our campus through myriad opportunities afforded to them: athletic, artistic, and service-oriented. In and out of the classroom, students develop the integrity, character, empathy, and personal responsibility indicative of the Bayside learning community. Through this array of extracurricular experiences, students discover passions and are encouraged to pursue them. The Upper School learning experience arms our students with the moral fiber and intellectual dexterity necessary to succeed in a future-focused world. 

The Upper School faculty encourages students to innovate, collaborate, communicate, problem solve, and critically reflect as they continuously redefine personal success in the pursuit of goals. My goal as an administrator is to walk alongside our faculty and our students on our mutual journey toward lifelong learning. Rest assured that we will not sit idly by and waste the privilege we have to develop a growth mindset and forge new paths, both here at Bayside and beyond!

My best,

Josh Montgomery
Head of Upper School
