My friends said this school is baad, i went there and it was really uncool there


Posted August 6, 2010

My child attended both 7th & 8th at this school. A negative is the selection for sports team is super small which doesn't give some kids opportunities to participate. The male band teacher really prepares the kids for high school band, he's compassionate about teaching music with respect. The assistant principal seemed caring but I never saw the new incoming principal after Mr. Walker. She was rarely seen but if you were lucky you might catch a glimpse of her. She only appeared in the newsletter or automated phone system. The AVID teacher was communitive which is great for parents who want to stay involved. The academics were good, although it was ALOT of homework from some teachers. Overall the school is great. Its all about what your child puts into it.

Bailey Junior High has some of the finest teachers and staff. I attended Bailey and now my son attends there and I am proud to have been a Bailey student and now a Bailey parent.

I don't know how anyone could fault the Principal leadership at Bailey Junior High! I have found Mr. Walker to be an extremely effective and involved principal who genuinely cares about the students' well-being, safety, and academic achievement. The teachers are wonderful, the staff is helpful and friendly, and the expectations are high. Bailey may not have the prettiest campus or building of all the junior highs in Arlington, but I'll take their faculty and staff over any other. My daughter is thriving there.

I would like to see a stronger Principal leadership in this school. Many extracurricular for students but only about 20% of students are 'chosen' for the sports, cheerleading.... and such.

A wonderful learning environment. The staff is creative, imaginative, encourages student learning. The teachers work well as a team. The administration provides a good working environment for both staff and students.

I myself used to go to Bailey, until I moved to Florida. I very much enjoyed my time there, and I miss my teachers, all of whom were wonderful educators. I highly encourage any new student to join Speech club or Speech class, it certainly helped me! All of my regards to my former teachers, Miranda

My daughter was encouraged to push herself and to try new skills. Bailey helped make her ready for High School.

My is son is in the 8th grade right now and when we were going to start jr. high we were nervous. So far this has been his favorite years yet. The teachers are all easy to talk to. Their expectations are high and I like that. It seems like they are doing their best to get the students ready for the next step and the real world.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
