Bayville Charter High
|Bayville Charter High|
|First Seen:||February 2015|
Bayville Charter High, Salem Center, is a charter high school of a particularly high reputation of academic excellence. Due to the reduced numbers of students and the need for young mutants to learn to cope in the 'normal' world, Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters now acts as a boarding residence for students, who now attend Bayville Charter.
Bayville Charter attempts to be inclusive, but with increasing fear of mutants following the M-Day event and the accompanying insurance issues, it does not openly accept mutants. Xavier's students, in order to maintain the mansion as a sanctuary, are encouraged to hide their powers where possible, and use image inducers outside of the mansion's grounds. It is not a satisfactory arrangement, but one that is necessary for the time being, at least.
The school caters from 9th Grade to 12th Grade (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior) and usually has been 300-350 students attending. College preparation classes (CRP) are available, as well as a Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) and double credit classes (college level credits at the same time as high school).
The school day consists of 4 classes in the morning, then lunch, then 4 classes in the afternoon.
Taken from the Rochester Academy Program of Studies, 2015-2016, and the New York State Diploma Requirements.
