Our five year old daughter has grown leaps and bounds since starting kindergarten. The teachers there are truly amazing, but we are a bit disappointed with the principle. She is very dismissive and never seems to really engage the students. The vice principle on the other hand is GREAT. BUT again the teachers are WONDERFUL and that is what matters.
I have a second grader at Baileywick Elementary and I am very pleased with Baileywick. My daughters teacher is new to Baileywick this year and my husband and I are very happy she's our daughters teacher. My daughter loves going to school. Her teacher updates parents with what is going on in the classroom via twitter, email, classroom website, and newsletters. The PE teacher is also wonderful. My daughter participated in First and Fitness this year and has an interest in running and being healthy since. The PTA is very active and plans outings and family nights for parents and kids frequently. Baileywick Elementary is a wonderful small community school that is very welcoming with grade A teachers.
After relocating from a HUGE A-rated school in Florida, I have high hopes for our experience at this small school. Wake County is implementing the Common Core Standards this year, so there have been some significant curriculum changes, but the teachers and new vice-principal have been on it and available to answer any questions. So far we are very pleased with our choice in school.
I can say without a doubt, the teachers, including the music, art, Coach, and librarians were "Baileywick" and are what we considered the real strength behind the children. We have enjoyed our daughters to date learning experience. However, our interaction with the principle has been very demotivating, stressful, & useless based on our dealings. Point being, we felt we were interacting with any concerns, issues with the principal with a lack of respect, trust and fairness which has been a very disappointing experience for our daughter as well. It is important to have an all around positive learning experience for your child, however, having a strong ethical leadership within a principal is important. The Asst. Principal was wonderful, and would fill the role more efficiently than the actual principal, especially not under that dictatorship. Meet and greets are very important with the admin arena besides knowing who your child will be taught by. We love the teachers, they are committed.
Baileywick is wonderful energetic school with caring progressive teachers,staff, & leaders. Our grandson has thrived there.
The teachers. They care about every child. And, try to find the things that are going to help each specific child succeed
We have a 2nd-grader and a Kindergarten-er. They both Love it! Teachers (Ms. Peotrowski <sp?> and Hardy, so far) are attentive and extremely good...
We transferred my daughter to this school last year and now I have two children that go to this school. I am very unhappy and will be taking my kids out of the school at the end of the year. The school is not well mixed and I believe that because of this my children feel out of place and alone. Academically, they are fair, but not as good as some of the other schools in the area. Totally dissapointed.
I currently have two very high energy grandchildren who attend this school. I cannot say enough about the quality, caring, focus on education that the staff and teachers set forth for the children that attend this elementary school. My own children who are now grown-up and have children of their own agree that the quality of education received at this elementary school is far more than they received while attending California public school system. I as a parent/guardian try to be an attentive parent when it comes to homework, classroom assistance, etc. because I know how hard these teachers and administrators work on behalf of our children. Many thanks to the Kindergarten and third grade teachers. Office staff is awesome as well!
