Fantastic school. Fantastic teachers. Each family has their own experiences but my child has really grown this year under the guidance of his teacher in second grade. Every day he walks through the door I know he is fully engaged and challenged. My experiences with the fifth grade has also been incredible. Great work Bailey!

The teachers at Bailey are highly qualified and creative and innovative in their teaching. They are enthusiastic about the learning for the kids and make it fun to be challenged. They are skilled on how to individualize learning for those that need it and work hard to know every student in school well. They use team teaching in some grade levels and technology is in every corner of the school. Under the Guidance Counselor's lead and with the collaboration of the principal, teachers and parents they teach social and life skills each week like how to welcome a new friend or be courteous to others. The PTO is vibrant and has a great relationship with the school making parents feel a part of the team to make the school great. The proof is in talking to any of the well rounded, happy and confident children who love their school and neighborhood community. Bailey is a gem!

While the administration was quick to embrace my child who is quite bright and entered into the gifted program, my second child who needs a bit more attention in reading and writing was steered towards ADHD evaluation (which I politely declined). My 3rd graders teacher is wonderful however his teacher last year was not an ideal role model...not outgoing or overly pleasant. My 1st grader went to private Kindergarten which he enjoyed and since his sibling did so well at Bailey we moved him to Bailey as well. Instead of his teacher looking for alternative methods to engage my son's interest, she instead keeps trying to diagnose medical conditions without any fact or behavior examples that would lead her to that conclusion. My son no longer engages at school due to her behavior toward him and she isn't taking any responsibility for him becoming disengaged. We are now frantically searching for a school that will spend time trying to teach him and give him the extra time needed instead of pointing fingers at a 6 year old for non existent behavior issues.

Bailey Elementary truly is one of the best schools around. We were here for three years and then had to move overseas ... we're back now and will only look at homes in the Bailey area. You will be hard-pressed to find another Jenny Harden.

This is by far the best school in Dublin, if not in the entire city! Your child will learn more here than in any other school. With Bailey's strong leadership from Phil Nieme and its' warm and caring staff, not to mention the countless number of parent volunteers, these are just a few of the factors that make Bailey the perfect school for my children. The PTO is unbelievable and Jenny Harden (guidence councelor) not only teaches the children life long lessons, but give each child unconditional love and respect. I have never met a more selfless person. There is not one aspect of this school that could be better than it is. It is a privilage to send my children here.

Bailey Elementary is one very special school. Parent involvement is very high. The teachers are exceptional. Mrs. Houk (first grade) is the best.

We moved from another Dublin Elementary in third grade and loved Bailey. The staff is excellent and the leadership provided by the principal, Phil Neimie is second to none. Our daughter was part of a new student club, which really helped her to adjust. The school boasts more male teachers than any other elementary in the District.

In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The OAA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

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.
