Bagley is a breath of fresh air. We moved to Bagley from Fultondale and I was completely amazed at the differences! Yes, it is a smaller community and they are more caring and personable. The teachers and staff still follow the Jeff Co rules meticulously (I love that) yet they don't have that "cold" feeling that you get from other larger schools. Also, I was amazed that Bagley was a little farther ahead in classwork when we moved here but the teacher was very eager and helpful to get us situated and caught up! They are very open to conferences if you ever have any questions and constantly allowing parents to get involved in all school functions, etc. My husband went here as a child and I attended Corner -both great! I know my children have a great future and will have many great opportunities coming from these schools.

Major downgrade!! We have moved out to the Bagley/Corner area from the gardendale school system.. poor teachers, slacking academically, this is definately not what my daughter is used to. On her first day I asked her where she would like to go back to school at and she said, 'Gardendale is hard, but Bagley is pretty easy'. Everyday Im grinding my teeth until we move back... I would not encourage anyone to attend this school.

I myself attended Bagley grades K-9, now so does my two children. Most of the teachers either live in the community or have famliy that does. I feel like this helps everyone feel closer together. I never worry about my childrens safety because the teachers are so caring. Sure every school has a few teachers that should have picked a different career or should have retired way before their 25 years was up. But I would not suggest sending your children to any other school than Bagley.

I went to Bagley School myself and now my child goes there. I feel like he is getting a great education in most subjects and the dicipline is good. Of course there are a few teachers that I would rather he not be in their class, but for the most part they are good.

First, let me say I am a parent. Bagley is not the school many think it is. There are some good teachers, but there are several that I consider poor. Often times children are not treated fairly - you see it year after year. Some children get the best teachers while others are thrown whereever. If you compare their test scores with Corner, you will see quite a difference. If I had it to do over, I would not have my child(ren) in this school. The PTO is basically a small group of parents that run the show - other than a few large functions, parents are not encouraged to help. There are good things about it, but overall a 'fair.'

My name is Faith, and I attend Bagley Jr. High. About six years ago, I was in a car accident, leaving me paralyzed from the neck down. I was attending Bagley before my accident, and I was simply amazed at the support and concern I received from my fellow students and teachers. When I was ready to return back to my beloved school after being dismissed from the hospital and rejuvenating, I was supplied with an aide who would write for me and help me with my school work. Therefore, my mom did not have to be my aide. Bagley has done so much for me over these six years through PTO and fundraisers, and they continue to help me with anything. They even supplied me with a laptop and Track-I-R, so I could do my school work more independently. I love my school, and I never want to leave!

I attented this school many years ago. My daughter also attented this school. There was a major drop in the quality of this school from when i left to when my daughter attented. With this being a small school you have your 'clicks' and the teachers say they are handling it but no progress was made. I also taught at bagley for a short time. Yes it is a beautiful school. The new part is wondrful. I just don't see the comparsion of reality to a building. I loved bagley in yonder years and would have loved my daughter to see the bagley i seen when i was her age. Praying for bagley.

I attended Bagley grades 1-9. Now, I have purposely moved back to the area so that my son could attend there also. Bagley students do well on standardized tests. They also have a lot of school spirit. The community is small and the kids know each other well. I can allow my son to spend the night with friends from school without worrying to much because they are often children or grandchildren of people that I went to school with. The teachers have been very interested in encouraging reading. I find this helpful because I think that if you like to read, and can understand what you read, then you can do well in almost any subject. My child has ADD and every one of his teachers have been very interested and helpful in getting him to concentrate. They are eager to have parent/teacher meetings to get to know him better. I feel like they are friends and we are all in this endeavor together.
