From the friendly office staff, approachable and warm administrators, to the two teachers my son has had who are extremely skilled, professional and caring we are so thankful to be part of Bailey Gatzert. I have a pre-school aged child who comes in with me at pick up and drop off, and he is always warmly welcomed too! There are many wonderful adults for my son to look up to; he really cares for the PE teacher and the lunch lady too! In 1.5 years we have not had any issues, but I am confident that if something comes up we will be able to work together as a family/school team to sort it out.
Bailey Gatzert is a beautiful school in central Seattle. The staff are kind, approachable, informative and supportive to kids and families. My sons have loved every day at school. They are eager to learn, build strong friendships and have teachers that challenge them both academically and socially. The school has strong partnerships with Seattle U and other various organizations to support student learning and family engagement. Students at Gatzert are encouraged to be their best, embrace one another's differences and succeed in school.
New kindergarten mom at Bailey Gatzert. The school overall is a smoothly running operation. My child is eager to go to school every day and has connected with the other children and teachers easily. He's also benefitting from exposure to families with different cultures, languages (25), socioeconomic status, and general life experiences. It is a small, managable school with music, PE (rock climbing wall!), big playarea, a great library, an amazing computer lab, and amazing community partnerships with Seattle University.
This school has worked with my daughter for years and they helped her become a more confident reader and brighter person she nows more confident about her work and she's dosen't worrie about getting it wrong.
