    My daughters just transferred there from another school district this year. All that I can say is wow! They have already become more confident better-performing students after just eight weeks. The teachers are caring and attentive and the staff and principal are doing wonders given all of the challenges they face. It's an urban school with a small school feel.

    My 2 girls love their school thats how they refer to Bayles when they talk about it. I am a very happy parent I rather keep my girls in this school because I love how much and well my girls have learned.

    My son attended Bayles this past year and he loved it! His teacher and aide were wonderful. If I had any questions or problems they were addressed promptly. I especially loved that they had a few family fieldtrips on Saturdays!!
