I feel that the school most likely follows policy regarding programs that are set up to help the children with learning disabilities. However, I am very concerned with the schools inability to truly grasp the the children's issues and needs. I have been told that the national average for children with attention deficit is 5 %. I really question that number ?? I am not sure if the problem is lack of resoures based on funding, or if they simply do not grasp the problem. I currently have one child with a reading problem utilizing the add'l resources that we have tested to be able to take part in, and I do not believe that the help is in sync with the daily curriculum. The state does not recognize dyslexia, so that cripples our options. Our other child clearly has ADHD, and it just seems like they those children are pushed through from grade to grade, " No Child left Behind " blaming listening and behavior. Our 3rd child is hyper, so we have behavioral issues. None of our three children are on any meds. As a parent I feel that there is a huge deficit of direction or help other than recommending medication. There must be a better solution. Thank you for a forum.
With five years of experience with teachers and staff I can attest to the out standing quality of the education provided. One of our children is in special ed. The care taken to make sure he is getting the proper help in his classes coupled with a caring main stream teacher is what has kept him progressing. The principal has shown leadership in all areas and especially in keeping quality teachers in the classrooms. Test scores are one measure, however, the quality and care the staff gives shows much more. He is very friendly with the students and calls them by name. He is also a no nonsense disciplinarian who takes the child's personality into account. Several of the teachers do tutoring after school, though not a school program. They coordinate with the regular class teacher. In this way the extra help is better tailored to the particular student's needs. Parent involvement is encorraged. The PTA is very active and always looking for volunteers for the many activities throughout the school year. These activities go from passive (do at home) to active. This is a well rounded school with dedicated staff.
this is our first year at bailey lake but my daughter is loving it!!
I have a Kindergarten student and a member of the PTA. Excellent teachers and involvement from both the teachers as well as the parents. Programs are challenging as well as rewarding. Support and encouragement abound at the school - from the teachers to the janitorial staff. Truly a wonderful school.
Bailey Lake is a wonderful school where the parents are involved, the teachers go above and beyond, and all parties involved want children to be the very best they can personally be!
Bailey Lake is filled with caring staff, students, and parents who work together to provide a learning and supportive environment for all. I am proud to teach here!
Bailey Lake Elementary offers a terrific early elementary program (this is all I am familiar with thus far). I have been very impressed with the encouragement and compassion the Kindergarten through second grade teachers have shown my boys!
Bailey Lake is a great place to work. We have a wonderful staff and a fantastic group of supportive parents... which in turn makes our students ready and willing to learn.
Bailey Lake Elementary is a wonderful learning environment where kids come first!
Bailey Lake is welcoming and caring! The principal make personal connections with parents, teachers, and students. Both of my children love going to school each and every day!
Bailey Lake has been a fantastic experience for my kindergartener! We took advantage of the full day option and what growth she has made this year! Bailey Lake is a welcoming place with great staff and high standards for students. We couldn't be more thrilled!
Baily Lake is a great school overall has a great staff and a wonderful principal. However it lacks ambition for testing with children in K-2 who show learning problems.
