    Bailey Elementary has an outstanding administration with an even better group of kids. The after school program at Bailey stands out among any other after school program. The guidence counselor Mr. Hanford emphasizes a "student run" program where the children decide on the activities. What other program lets the students be in charge?! This makes them feel important and teaches them leadership at a young age! GREAT JOB BAILEY!

    Bailey Elementary has caring teachers and an energetic staff that welcomes parents and community members and helps each child feel safe and important. Mrs. Zilbar and Mrs. Mayo work hard to make sure that everything runs smoothly. The school provides opportunities including Mr. Hanford's afterschool program Odyssey of the Mind student council and safety patrols. My children love it and look forward to going to school every day! They both feel that they have the best teachers in the world!
