This school would not exist if it were not for BayCES. If someone tells me they want to start or redesign a school, I tell them they have to work with BayCES.  BayCES helped us build a community that was the foundation of our academic success – they create the conditions for success.  A big value-add is that BayCES coaches’ expertise and experience are at a really high level.  I always knew when I wasn’t sure about something, that they were the people I trusted who I could turn to for help.” – David Silver, 2008
