Bailey Elementary has an outstanding administration with an even better group of kids. The after school program at Bailey stands out among any other after school program. The guidence counselor, Mr. Hanford, emphasizes a "student run" program where the children decide on the activities. What other program lets the students be in charge?! This makes them feel important and teaches them leadership at a young age! GREAT JOB BAILEY!

Bailey Elementary has caring teachers and an energetic staff that welcomes parents and community members and helps each child feel safe and important. Mrs. Zilbar and Mrs. Mayo work hard to make sure that everything runs smoothly. The school provides opportunities including Mr. Hanford's afterschool program, Odyssey of the Mind, student council, and safety patrols. My children love it and look forward to going to school every day! They both feel that they have the best teachers in the world!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science and writing in grades 4, 8 and 10. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
