    Great school for with all kids with variety of programs each one targeting to your unique group of students.

    Fantastic school. Fantastic teachers. Each family has their own experiences but my child has really grown this year under the guidance of his teacher in second grade. Every day he walks through the door I know he is fully engaged and challenged. My experiences with the fifth grade has also been incredible. Great work Bailey!

    The teachers at Bailey are highly qualified and creative and innovative in their teaching. They are enthusiastic about the learning for the kids and make it fun to be challenged. They are skilled on how to individualize learning for those that need it and work hard to know every student in school well. They use team teaching in some grade levels and technology is in every corner of the school. Under the Guidance Counselor's lead and with the collaboration of the principal teachers and parents they teach social and life skills each week like how to welcome a new friend or be courteous to others. The PTO is vibrant and has a great relationship with the school making parents feel a part of the team to make the school great. The proof is in talking to any of the well rounded happy and confident children who love their school and neighborhood community. Bailey is a gem!

    While the administration was quick to embrace my child who is quite bright and entered into the gifted program my second child who needs a bit more attention in reading and writing was steered towards ADHD evaluation (which I politely declined). My 3rd graders teacher is wonderful however his teacher last year was not an ideal role model...not outgoing or overly pleasant. My 1st grader went to private Kindergarten which he enjoyed and since his sibling did so well at Bailey we moved him to Bailey as well. Instead of his teacher looking for alternative methods to engage my son's interest she instead keeps trying to diagnose medical conditions without any fact or behavior examples that would lead her to that conclusion. My son no longer engages at school due to her behavior toward him and she isn't taking any responsibility for him becoming disengaged. We are now frantically searching for a school that will spend time trying to teach him and give him the extra time needed instead of pointing fingers at a 6 year old for non existent behavior issues.

    Bailey Elementary truly is one of the best schools around. We were here for three years and then had to move overseas ... we're back now and will only look at homes in the Bailey area. You will be hard-pressed to find another Jenny Harden.

    This is by far the best school in Dublin if not in the entire city! Your child will learn more here than in any other school. With Bailey's strong leadership from Phil Nieme and its' warm and caring staff not to mention the countless number of parent volunteers these are just a few of the factors that make Bailey the perfect school for my children. The PTO is unbelievable and Jenny Harden (guidence councelor) not only teaches the children life long lessons but give each child unconditional love and respect. I have never met a more selfless person. There is not one aspect of this school that could be better than it is. It is a privilage to send my children here.

    Bailey Elementary is one very special school. Parent involvement is very high. The teachers are exceptional. Mrs. Houk (first grade) is the best.

    We moved from another Dublin Elementary in third grade and loved Bailey. The staff is excellent and the leadership provided by the principal Phil Neimie is second to none. Our daughter was part of a new student club which really helped her to adjust. The school boasts more male teachers than any other elementary in the District.
