How do we measure up? . . .
New data show Bay Village Schools compare near the top

New comparison statistics on how Bay Village Schools compare with county, state and national academic performance as measured by standardized tests are available for the 2015-16 school year.

Results for SAT and ACT tests show that Bay High students excel in these important college entrance exams as compared to peers across Ohio and the U.S. In addition, new Ohio Report Cards show that students in all categories are achieving at or beyond state expectations -- in spite of Ohio using three different tests in three years and increasing "cut scores" for performance.

These outstanding results came even as we spent less per pupil than two-thirds of Cuyahoga County districts.

Read about these achievements in the latest Community Report.
