Students at Bay Farm are academically challenged and given reasonable opportunities for pacing work to meet their needs. They also learn responsibility, meet deadlines, and master skills and concepts. With the support and guidance of our teachers, Middle School students complete complex projects that include research and presentation and illustrate their mastery of concepts. Tools such as checklists, work plans, and study guides promote time management, organization, and decision-making in all of their work.

A Prepared Environment
In 2020, we completed construction on our brand-new Middle School facility featuring The Shop. This new facility is a prepared Middle School environment that features flexible space for students to work collaboratively, materials, tools, and resources for hands-on work, and an abundance of natural light for a connection with the natural world. This environment is characterized by a student-centered approach that enables students to manage time, exercise choice, organize themselves and practice self-regulation within a group context.
Bay Farm believes that this development of independent self-management is crucial to success in high school and beyond.
