Bayville Elementary School is located on the north shore of Long Island, and is a child-centered, high performing school which offers children in grades K-5 stimulating and rigorous learning opportunities within a safe, nurturing and supportive setting. Students are heterogeneously grouped and are held to high, developmentally-appropriate expectations. Staff members provide differentiated instruction and support according to individual student needs including, remediation, reinforcement and enrichment. Teachers, staff, parents and residents partner together to create an environment which fosters the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of every child. By providing instruction which informs, inspires and challenges, we strive to instill a love of learning which will continue throughout our children’s lives. Our goal is to help each child develop an enthusiasm for learning, dedication to high levels of student achievement, a respect for self and others and the skills to become a creative, independent and civic-minded individual. In our school, we celebrate the achievements of the present, embrace the challenges of the future, while we continue to cherish the traditions of the past. It is our remarkable staff, involved parents and eager children who come together to make the Bayville schools such wonderful places to learn and grow.
