My son is in Kindergarten this year at Baggaley. The Teachers, Principal and staff have helped make this transition a smooth one. I am so greatful that the people in this school care so much about the students and parents. I am extremally proud to have my son be a part of such a great school. My sons teacher Mrs. Wiesneski is so awesome. She loves her students as if they were her own kids. She gives them support when they are having a bad day away from home and she teaches them not only how to be good students, but also how to be good people. She and all the teachers at Baggaley are Rock Stars in my book!

I love Baggaley Elementary because my kids love going to school there! They know that their principal, teachers, and the entire school staff cares about them & their success in learning. I think that everyone feels welcome when they walk through those doors. Parents are always encouraged to be involved.

Baggaley elementary is simply the best. From the kids, teachers parents,principle,all the other staff members ,and one great community our school just can't be beat. I love that my kids go Baggaley. In fact we bought a house in the district just to keep our kids here even though my husband now has to drive an hour one way to get to work. After having the Baggaley experience no one would want to go any where else. What they do at this school other schools should strive for.

Baggaley Elementary School is a wonderful place to learn. The school provides a very welcoming and nuturing environment. The teachers develop strong, caring relationships with the students. The teachers get to know the families of their students in an effort to work as a team to help meet all the needs of the students.

My son is high performing but has some mild social behavioral issues. The entire team at Baggaley have stepped up. This school has excelled beyond my hopes in providing for him. If you talk to the kids, they tend to not look forward to 6th grade since they know they will have t leave Baggaley the following year. A great school!
