They are really trying hard with the kids. They are making an effort to get the parents envolved in their childrens education as well, they have many programs here to help their students.

My son attended Bailey for two years, and my daughter for one. Then, we were 'moved' to Northside, which we were told is 'better.' But we loved Bailey and still do. The faculty and staff have always been warm and supportive. It's like walking into a home away from home. This is not, sadly, the environment my children are in now at Northside. Oh, and Mrs. King is wonderful. My son had her at Bailey and excelled. She's the best. But she is one of many terrific teachers there.

I think the quality of education is great. Teachers and staff go beyond their duties to help the children not only academic wise but all ways that they see improvement in everything they do. I have never seen a school so dedicated to the needs of children in any school system before. They are there for the children and parents at any time.

G.O. Bailey Primary school has a warm and welcoming environment. The entire staff from the principal to the teachers are dedicated to providing the students with the best education possible. Two of my children have attended this school and they have both been shown respect and care.

G.O.Bailey is a wonderful school. I really enjoy working with my daughter's teacher Mrs. King. I have seen some very positive things coming from her classroom. She is an ideal techer.
