Future plans for some of the 2023 Bay Port graduates include entering fields such as international relations, music, medicine, education, theater, the trades, psychology, law, biomedical science, environmental sciences, political science, physics, engineering, fire-fighting, cosmetology, and the armed forces, to name only a few. These graduates started kindergarten in the fall of 2010 and have seen numerous changes in their neighborhoods, their schools, the community, and in the world. Adapting, learning and growing through these changes will serve them well in the future as one can only imagine the changes they will see and the history they will make in their lifetimes.

The achievements of this class combined with their plans for the future have opened up endless possibilities. As these young adults leave Bay Port High School to begin the next stage of their lives, they take with them the hopes of past generations of graduates. Drawing on their Graduate Profile skills (Self-Starter, Critical Thinker, Collaborator, Communicator, Adaptable, Responsible, and Solutionist), their experiences inside and outside of the classroom have prepared them to navigate whatever path they choose. May our Bay Port graduates view the successes and challenges they have realized thus far as foundational to the successes of their future. The Board of Education congratulates the Class of 2023 and wishes each and every one of them the best in their future endeavors.
