About this school:


Bayview Glen offers a co-educational, multicultural and multi-denominational education that reflects the real world and enables students to develop a broad and informed outlook. Bayview Glen’s philosophy of ‘Whole Child. Whole Life. Whole World.’ is at the centre of a Bayview Glen education. It focusses on the educational continuum from Preschool (age 2) to Grade 12 fostering values, abilities and friendships that last a lifetime. Educating the ‘whole child’ requires that as educators we provide a wide range of opportunities for students to explore - from Arts to Athletics, Spanish to Mandarin, Robotics to Model United Nations, Round Square and Advanced Placement. Since 1962, our goal has been to foster self-esteem, independence, leadership skills and academic excellence within a secure and supportive learning environment. We also focus on preparing our students for the new economy. We nurture collaboration, problem solving and academic risk taking to help foster skills needed for the 21st century, developing an entrepreneurial mind set and establishing excellent communication skills are also top priorities. Come visit us and we'll introduce you to the Bayview Glen community. — Visit school website

Our Take: Bayview Glen

our takeIt's a big world out there, with lots of big ideas in it, and Bayview Glen prides itself on offering students an introduction to all its breadth and complexity. The school is part of the Round Square network of schools, which reflects that ambition; the program includes cross-curricular links to concepts of community, self-reliance, and entrepreneurialism. For some students, it can be a lot, perhaps especially for those within the younger grades—the school admits students from preschool through to grade 12. A broad range of curricular and extracurricular activities back up the school's promise to deliver the world: Mandarin classes, a model United Nations program, as well as a range of arts and athletics. While learner support is provided, the ideal student is one who is able to thrive in an intellectually diverse, academically challenging environment.

Principal's Message


Eileen Daunt, Head of School

Welcome to Bayview Glen, a unique, co-educational and multicultural university preparatory day school. The heart of a Bayview Glen education is the pairing of high academic standards with truly thoughtful programmes and activities for students and their families.

Bayview Glen is committed to fostering a sense of community between students, parents, teachers and staff. We pride ourselves on communication with our parents and on establishing a true partnership between home and school. We depend on our parents for honest and consistent feedback – in this relationship we feel fortunate indeed – and we work hard to maintain it.

The programme goal is to develop the whole child by nurturing self-esteem, leadership, academic excellence and independence. Each day, in Bayview Glen’s secure and supportive learning environment, our students discover new experiences for both challenge and success.

Our advanced academic programme is balanced with a strong music and arts programme, languages, physical education, Outdoor Adventure, Duke of Edinburgh Programme; and co-curricular activities, including an art festival, drama productions, choirs, bands, and extensive team sports.

As a member school of Round Square, we have a strong focus on international understanding. Our students participate regularly in community service and character-building life experiences, locally and abroad. A Bayview Glen education is rich with diverse learning experiences and opportunities for personal achievements. Our faculty and resources make it possible for all students to meet these high expectations.

    Sex and Health Education
    Topics covered in sex and health education: This information is not currently available.

    What Bayview Glen says: This information is not currently available.

    Mostly value-neutral

    By and large, we teach sex education free of any particular moral or ethical standpoint. We try not to impose any particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) on our students when teaching sex and related issues.

    Fairly value-based

    Sex education is sometimes taught from a particular moral or ethical standpoint. Sometimes particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) are invoked when teaching sex and related issues.


    This includes a range of positions. A traditional approach might, for example, go as far as emphasizing the nuclear family and complete abstinence from sex before marriage. Alternatively, this approach might simply involve placing less emphasis on sex outside of the context of marriage and more emphasis on abstinence. Or finally, it might just involve focusing less on sex outside of the context of marriage.


    This might mean more emphasis is placed on the importance of such things as social equality, diversity, and choice in sex education.

    Preschool/K Curriculum Play-based

    • Play-based
    • Montessori
    • Waldorf
    • Reggio Emilia
    • Academic

    Play-based programs are the most common type of preschool and Kindergarten, and are founded on the belief young children learn best through play. Largely open-ended and minimally structured, play-based programs aim to develop social skills and a love of attending school. “Pre-academic” skills are taught, but in a more indirect way than at, say, an Academic program: through children playing in different “stations” set up around the classroom, which children choose on their own volition. Stations often contain an indirect lesson or developmental goal. Play-based classrooms are highly social and active.

    If you want to learn more about preschool education, check out our comprehensive guide. You can also read our in-depth answers to important preschool questions: What is preschool? What are the main preschool programs? What are the main pros and cons of preschool? What do children learn in preschool? How much does preschool cost?  What makes for a great preschool?

    What Bayview Glen says: Bayview Glen offers a balanced programme starting at age two years.

    Curriculum Pace Accelerated

    • Standard-enriched
    • Accelerated
    • Student-paced

    The main curriculum accelerates beyond the pace of the provincial one; ALL students do the work of OLDER public-school peers in tangible and measurable ways. This accelerated pace is maintained by the teachers and school, (through textbook selection, topic selection, grading, assignment standards and expectations, etc).

    Flexible pacing:

    Flexible pacing style = offered
    Subject-streaming (tracking)
    Multi-age classrooms as standard
    Ability-grouping (in-class) as common
    Frequent use of cyber-learning (at-their-own-pace)
    Regular guided independent study opportunities
    Differentiated assessment

    What Bayview Glen says about flexible pacing: This information is not currently available.

    Academic Culture Rigorous

    • Rigorous
    • Supportive

    A school with a “rigorous” academic culture places a high value on academic performance, and expects their students to do the same. This does not mean the school is uncaring, unsupportive, or non-responsive -- far from it. A school can have a rigorous academic culture and still provide excellent individual support. It does mean, however, the school places a particular emphasis on performance -- seeking the best students and challenging them to the fullest extent -- relative to a normal baseline. High expectations and standards – and a challenging yet rewarding curriculum – are the common themes here. Keep in mind this classification is more relevant for the older grades: few Kindergarten classrooms, for example, would be called “rigorous”.

    What Bayview Glen says: This information is not currently available.

    Developmental Priorities Balanced

    Equal attention is paid to a balance of priorities: intellectual, emotional, social, and physical.

    Stories & Testimonials


    Why Bayview Glen Preschool

    Most families who choose Bayview Glen Preschool have already provided a rich learning environment for their children since birth. These are families who want to ensure that their children continue to have an educational environment rich with experiences and opportunity. Their children have been read to, sung to, played with, talked to and given every opportunity to develop at their optimum level already. A good Preschool continues to develop and build on previous experiences and take the child to the next level. Children at this young age thrive in an environment that is calm, safe, nurturing and where routines are predictable.

    The Bayview Glen Preschool provides programmes that are well balanced, based on the rate of development of the child and provide for challenge and success. Children develop a good sense of self in an environment rich in language, play experiences, music and gross motor development. They learn independence by developing their self-help skills, they use their words to solve problems, and through their social interactions with others develop emotionally.

    While the Bayview Glen Preschool is rich with history it is also constantly adapting to meet the needs of these young students, and today’s busy families. After school programmes such as ballet, jazz, Mandarin, are just some of the ways. Please come and visit and experience first hand the Bayview Glen Preschool. We know you will agree, it is a special place.


    Why Co-education

    From the moment we are born, we learn attitudes, values and behaviours. We learn what is expected of us, the roles we play and how to live in a community. The most important influences in the area of gender socialization are family, school, media and peer groups. It is vital that parents and educators become aware that the hidden messages that are sometimes sent to boys and girls may in fact limit their ambitions, choices and interfere with learning.

    Recent information on gender learning styles reinforces the value of co-education. It provides an opportunity for young people to see and evaluate gender differences and similarities and to look beyond gender issues to embrace each person as an equal – to learn the value of respecting others opinions and ideas on an individual basis.

    It’s now known that there is considerable overlap between males and females. For instance some girls may be more competitive than boys while some boys are more nurturing than girls. With awareness of gender differences, we can focus on what is gender shared and remember everything is a variable, based on the individual person.

    Anne Chapman, an authority on education and gender socialization says in her book A Great Balancing Act: “The curriculum of the real world is one our children will all have to follow. Education can help young people to prepare to meet and overcome the attitudes that reinforce stereotypes and preconceptions and can provide experiences that counter them.”

    Co-education remains the most valuable and realistic educational option to help boys and girls interact as equals, and relate to each other as valuable collaborators, worthy opponents and interesting individuals.


    Why Bayview Glen

    The Bayview Glen philosophy “Whole Child, Whole Life, Whole World” is at the centre of a Bayview Glen education. It focusses on the educational continuum from Preschool (age 2) through Grade 12, fostering values, abilities and friendships that last a lifetime. This philosophy embraces the real world beyond our walls in that we are co-educational, multicultural and multi-denominational; and it focuses on the whole child, nurturing each child’s full potential and confidence to succeed.

    Educating the whole child involves identifying and nurturing talents. This requires that, as educators, we provide a wide range of interesting opportunities for students to explore – from arts to athletics, from Spanish to Mandarin, from robotics to Model United Nations, and from the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative to DECA and Advanced Placement.

    Our co-educational and multicultural environment is the real differentiating factor of a Bayview Glen education, maximizing the learning potential of both boys and girls. The focus in today’s education should not be on how boys and girls learn differently, but on personalizing the learning environment and differentiating instruction and assessment for all. The difference within the genders is often greater than those between the genders, and we must remain focused on what is gender shared and keep in mind that everything is a variable based on the individual person. Also, the research on leadership suggests that girls and boys need experience in both leading and following individuals of the opposite gender. This is accomplished easily in a co-educational environment. A Bayview Glen education gives students a head start in school and in life, building a strong foundation for the future. The values instilled in them ensures they develop an appreciation for what they have and who they are.  It also develops in them a heightened sense of responsibility to themselves and others and the value of making a difference.

    A cornerstone of a Bayview Glen education is its membership in Round Square, a worldwide association of schools on five continents that links our students’ local community to the world at large. The Round Square IDEALS of Internationalism, Democracy, Environment, Adventure, Leadership and Service are woven into the fabric of our school. This adds the international dimension so necessary in today’s education of global citizens and future leaders. When our students move on to university or enter the world of work, the global perspective becomes an important legacy from their time at Bayview Glen.  Students’ time at Bayview Glen prepares them well; to think critically and creatively; to work hard and manage their time.  Most of all, it helps them to know who they are.  When they continue to post-graduate work, Bayview Glen alumni are welcomed at the best universities in the world.
