Message from the Principal

Dear Parents & Students,



Last week, the Department of Education released its 2012-13 Progress Reports for High Schools.

With a score of 75.6 out of 100, Bayside High School exceeded the cut-off grade of 70 needed to receive an "A" rating.

This is the third "A" received since the Progress Reports began and it reflects the contributions and efforts of everyone at 32-24 Corporal Kennedy Street:


“…Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” 
  -John F. Kennedy, 1961

Dear Parents & Students,

When your child began at Bayside, you became a part of a community that includes 3,500 families; 300 staff members; and 44,000 alumni stretching back seventy-seven years. You also became part of a tradition which we hope will project forward by providing quality education to yet more thousands of students and families for the next seventy-seven years.

Being part of a community brings with it rights, privileges, and responsibilities. One of the most urgent responsibilities is to ensure that the community can survive and thrive to include others in the coming years.


A message from the Principal:

Dear Parents & Caregivers,

Each new school year brings opportunities & challenges. The opportunities include all of the great learning experiences which our dedicated faculty and administrators have planned for your children. These also include our chance to extend the welcoming, caring & personalized environment that our faculty, staff, & administrators have striven to create for your children.


On February 24, 2009, President Obama included the following in his remarks to Congress:
"... every American will need to get more than a high school diploma. And dropping out of high school is no longer an option. It's not just quitting on yourself, it's quitting on your country -- and this country needs and values the talents of every American...we will provide the support necessary for all young Americans to complete college..."
