Bay View School in Burlington, Washington has been serving kindergarten through eighth grade students in the Burlington-Edison School District for 22 years. Named after the small community of Bayview, which was later incorporated by the town of Burlington, it serves mainly in-district neighborhood students. This year 562 students are enrolled. The town of Burlington is 66 miles north of Seattle, Washington. Located at the intersection of two major highways, Burlington serves as a retail and commercial hub for the region. Industry is mainly agricultural, retail, and commercial.
Over the past three years, Bay View has committed to becoming a school of inquiry. Through inquiry and collaboration, Bay View’s purpose is to nurture compassionate, creative, knowledgeable growth-minded world citizens, who pursue dreams and positively impact the future. Bay View continually inquires to understand one essential question. What do we need to understand, commit to and implement to prepare students to be career, college, and/or world ready for the 21st century? This journey has led them to begin creating concept-based units of inquiry at each grade level. Multi-disciplinary and intra-disciplinary units support school-wide connections through inquiry. The opportunity to ask questions of astronauts on the ISS was pursued as an experience that could spark students’ interest in space, engineering, technology, mathematics, and support a school-wide inquiry.
