    Wow... so much good to say about Bailly! The principal truly cares about the students. The administration does not put up with poor behavior and disciplines students effectively. My child has had some of the more experienced teachers at the school and they have been amazing! The facility is well taken care of and is a pleasant place for my child to spend his day. The Title teachers are well qualified and work hard to get the students up to grade level. Two thumbs up for Bailly Elementary!

    I love Bailly Elementary. My son has some speech difficulties and they help him so much it is amazing. I love how they have so many programs to help kids. I will never pull my son out of this school corporation because I have never seen teachers work so hard to help their students.

    I Love Bailly elementry and I will never move and take my kids out of the chesterton school systems. My sister moved here just so her kids can go to this school they have so much to offer the children 'absoultly no child is left behind here and they meet each child's needs' they really do care about your kids and have special programs to help your child in any weakness. I also reccomend for smaller children the duneland YMCA PreSchool/daycare....
