Dear Reader, First Off, I Would Like To Say That Most Of the Teachers At J. Watson Bailey Dont Care For Their Students. They Think That Being Mean Is The Way To Go. Incorrecct. The Student Body At This school Is The Most Judgemental One In All Of New York Probably. Its Like, You Do One Thing And Its Held Against You For The Rest Of Your Life. You Feel Forced To Keep Everything You Have Bottled Up. And I Dont Like How They Change Things Like Field Trips. for Example, the 8th Grade Sleep Over. It Has Been Done Many Times, Canceled This Year. What Do You Think About That? ~From An 8th Grade Student~
Well this school is a good school to go to if you want a expirence....there is a large amount of extremly lazy teachers and there are some really greaat teachers...overall if your not 'popular' you are going to be judge and bullied...thats what 90% of the fights are over in this school and there is a lot of drama!!!!! i would suggest going to miller if you want to get good grades but bailey is the place to be if you want to hang and relax most of the day.
Well I go to this school I was blessed with grate teachers. I warn you it is a vary crowded school and vary judgmental.Their is academic help but some lazy teachers.
I just want to say that I am so happy my son is finally out of this school. He was a high honor student when he began here, and every year his grades fell of more and more to the point of near failing some classes. I spent a lot of time at home helping him understand his work so he would pass his final year. Now in the high school, he is back on the high honor roll with no trouble at all. While I believe some teachers at Bailey were fine instructors who did care, the majority of them should be collecting unemployment because they obviously have no idea how to teach. A failing school do to failng teachers!
This school was once great in all areas. But, with the new principals the school and its students have suffered. The changes brought about were unecessary. The students realize they need change and change will continue to occur as part of life. The new school arangements are for the most part rediculous.
Good school, could be better academically. I have found the english classes to be really lacking. My child has not been given work high enough for her level for the last three years. Overall the teachers are mixed bag, of good and bad. The administration has sometimes not had the right teacher in the right position (like someone teaching advanced Math should not be someone who refuses to stay after school to give extra help!). There is a new female principal. Maybe she will bring improvement. Right now she's just been aggravating the kids and parents with changing things that were actually good, like incentives (dances, trips). I think the opportunities that are offered to the kids is the school's best asset. Lots of clubs and things to be involved in. Most teachers stay after school for help and for clubs.
The principal, Mr. Goren, is a very caring person. He is always willing to listen to parents' and kids' concerns. The music program at Bailey is especially good.
J.W.B is an over crowed school. The principal cares less about the students. He does not show us that he cares about us or are education. I go to jwb currently. Its awful.
J. Watson bailey is overfulled. They are way to many kids in this building.This is what i think of bailey middle school as a student that goes there.
This school is the most judgemental school I've been to. the teachers are no good, they teach very poorly, there is barely any activites, and the parents arent invoved at all at the school. this sochool is not strict at all. the kids can do what ever they want to each other and the teachers dont even CARE!
