Wow... so much good to say about Bailly! The principal truly cares about the students. The administration does not put up with poor behavior and disciplines students effectively. My child has had some of the more experienced teachers at the school and they have been amazing! The facility is well taken care of and is a pleasant place for my child to spend his day. The Title teachers are well qualified and work hard to get the students up to grade level. Two thumbs up for Bailly Elementary!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Indiana used the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) assessment to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, grades 4 and 6 in science, and in grades 5 and 7 in social studies. The ISTEP+ is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Indiana. The goal is for all students to score at the passing level on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
