Welcome to Bayfield High School

“Great teams are collectively positive. They have a collective belief and contagious optimism-and it starts with you. When you believe, you can inspire others to believe. When you have faith, you can inspire others with it. You will face a lot of adversity, resistance, and negativity, but always remember that your certainty, optimism, belief and faith must be greater that all of the negativity, fear, and doubt. Share your optimism, belief and faith with your team. When you subtract negativity and add positivity to your talent, the sky is the limit. Let’s get positive. Let’s get going.”- The Power of Positive Leadership, Jon Gordon. I am excited to focus our positive energy on amazing opportunities for our students and continuing the great things that we have planned for Bayfield High School students.
