They do NOTHING to the students that are rude and mean. But they will rearrange the victim's life so they don't have to deal with complaints. If your kid has behavioral issues, they will fit in just fine and hardly every receive more than a one day in school suspension.
This school lacks any discipline. The teacher are dealing with so many problem students they never actually teach. Forget about having issues solved. It took two days to find a class my child would not be screamed at, called names, or have people stick used bandaides on her. The counselor referred to these children as "spirited". I had so many people recommend Bailey as the best middle school in the area. I would really hate to see how bad the other schools are. We removed our child. Our other children will also be home schooled during middle school until we can move out of this nightmare of a city!
I have two children who attended Bailey for 6th-8th grades. Every school has it's issues, this one has MINOR flaws. There are no lockers, but is that really a big deal when the education is good? Both of my kids went on to honors and AP classes in high school thanks to the teachers at Bailey! I never felt like my kids were not safe or were neglected. The bottom line is that at this age and older, what you get out of school directly relates to the work you're willing to put in!
It's a great school but it could be better than it is.No lockers in the hallway for Bailey school students,the only one you get is the one in p.e.!!!!!!! It also could be better if they made it easier for Bailey beginners.
This school's faculty is ridiculous and petty. They are more worried about their reputation than they are teaching and mentoring children. I thought enrolling my son here would be beneficial to him and his education, but its been nothing short of a knit picking nightmare. The faculty and teachers are rude, short, and borderline unprofessional. Never again will one of my children attend this joke of a school.
Average middle school with a fairly weak academic schedule. Most of the teachers seem to care and are willing to talk to parents, but the school administrators (especially the guidance counselors and principal) are worthless. Will never return e-mails (delivered within their own system off their website). Every parent I've spoken with recommends calling Malcolm Thomas (the school Superintendent) to get any action or to even get a simple response to a question.
I am very upset with this school system after an interaction with my niece. After suffering a broken ankle, she was not allowed to make up her assignments in one class because the teacher stated she could not bring the book home. The teacher was uncooperative when contacted, the counselor was clueless with no ability to access grades, and the principal was too busy "making deadlines" to tend to the matter after 4 days. The guidance counselor then proceeded to remove the child from class, badger her about the situation sending her into tears with accusatory statements. After transferring from supposedly one of the poorest education systems in the country in Louisiana to this "fine" school, I am of the belief this school could learn alot from the schools in Louisiana where the teachers and administrators took interest in the well being of the students.
