How we see Bayview Glen
How Bayview Glen sees itself
"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 and French, 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.

Most big schools provide your extroverted child with plenty of social opportunities and the ability to interact with different peer groups with a wide range of personalities, interests, values, etc. A larger student population and more extracurriculars—including activities like team sports, arts programs, and debate—will give them a broader scope of opportunities to participate in events that scratch their interpersonal itch. “This may also give them the opportunity to hone certain skills,” say Ann and Karen Wolff of Wolff Educational Services. “For instance, they might run for student council to develop leadership and public speaking skills and learn to be a voice for other students.”
Make sure any prospective school, no matter what size, provides the right social environment to help your child feel at home, make friends, and develop confidence. This is especially important at big schools, which are sometimes more socially overwhelming and challenging for an introvert to find their bearings in. Of course, “Because larger schools usually have a more diverse student population, introverted kids are more likely to find a small group of people like them, a peer group they can relate to and find acceptance from,” says Dona Matthews, Toronto-based education consultant and co-author (with Joanne Foster) of Beyond Intelligence.
Bigger schools often have a broader scope of extracurricular activities, which is another way to help your child meet the right group of friends. “This may also give them the opportunity to develop certain skills,” say Ann and Karen Wolff of Wolff Educational Services. “For instance, they might run for student council to develop leadership and public speaking skills and learn to be a voice for other students. Remember, though, each child is different—so what works for one may not work for another.”
