Never Go to this school. How do they call teaching sitting on a computer all day. I recommend not to go to this school if you want a future . They also treat new students horribly. Some teachers are not welcoming and make you feel stressed out.They send you to a different classroom if you don't know an answer.They tell you that your answer is incorrect if you use your own strategy(your strategy finds the right answer) to find a solution. I used to be almost a straight A student but now I struggle just to get a B. All we do in class is worksheets and sit on the computer. Even though the tour may seem friendly, some kids are not friendly. If you are thinking about going to this school, I urge you not to go . This school puts you in a terrible and negative environment. If you have goals and a future don't waste it. Go to a real school, in a positive learning environment, and where you'll strive to learn and be challenged in a positive way. I hope you take my advice, as a student who came later in the year. I now don't like going to school and I used to be so exited going to school, that I would get sick.
I you have ADHD, and possibly learn slower, or forget a lot, this is not the place for you! I have witnessed Teachers yelling and humiliating kids because they cant solve a problem fast enough. In class we half to do a warm up in 8 minutes. If the teacher calls on you and you don't have the answer than you get sent to another teacher. It can be humiliating to these students when they half to cry or self destruct in front of 35 other students.
A 5 year old could take the role of some teachers at this school. All you half to do is tell the students to go on google classroom and complete assignments. Some teachers send you to different classrooms if you don't know the answer to a question, so know you can feel humiliated. They make you stressed out . They make new students feel unwelcoming and uncomfortable. Take the advice from someone who knows what schools are like outside of this school.
Kids and parents all together being bullied by staff? Yes, it does happen at this school. This school is all about test grades, end of story - not about getting an education. The teachers will discriminate based on their likes and dislikes. Do not get fooled by school rating, its only a facade.
If your kid has any issues in school, run.
This is not a place for any kid to have issues. The teachers will let your kid in class just stay and do nothing.
School is about what money can get from federal and local government not about teaching, preparing kids for life.
Run, an horrible school to be at!
The school is all about grades and what money they can get from local and federal government.
If your kid has any issues in schools, run. They will not help your kid at all, as they are not equipped with necessary tools nor they have the understanding or desire to deal with any issues.
They will go to the extend to let your kid do nothing in class rather than correct any issue.
So a grade 10 for this school feels and is fake.
More appropriate would be a 4, you as a school you failed your students.
Our son is in his third year at Bailey (and we've got two more who will be there soon). We are very happy with Bailey Middle School. The teachers and staff are smart and professional. There are many extracurricular opportunities. The curriculum is challenging and my son will be well prepared for high school. Principal Thomas is caring, professional and the students know he has high expectations for them. Yes, there are more kids per class than a private school. But the students are separated into teams and each team has their own teachers. The teachers know how to manage the class and they also offer help times outside of class so they get to know the kids. And the students learn to be independent, responsible and get help when they need it. These are life skills that translate to future success. On to Hough next year and we are excited! It is disheartening to read unbalanced negative critiques thrown out there for all to see which are unfair and skew the rating, IMO. More parents need to submit a review and express what a great school Bailey really is.
Bailey Middle School has been a great experience for my 7th grader. They have done an excellent job since he bagan there in 6th grade. The teachers are creative in the classroom and the principal is always visible. There are a lot of ways to get involved for both students and parents. I have always found the staff to be attentive to my needs. I would highly recommend Bailey.
Bailey middle school is probably the craziest school I've ever seen. My daughter has friends there and makes good grades despite the school. Bullies everywhere from staff to students. I've contacted the superintendent of the school with no help. My daughter is leaving the school, due to the bullying from staff and student. After tons of complaints the self righteous principal will do nothing to correct his staff and after getting the police involved the bully has been pointed out. But I will home school her until high school age.
