    The staff and teachers here are all excellent. There are issues with students bullying other students. The punishment for this is very little if at all. The STEM program is wonderful and more student would attend through this program if the discipline issues were addressed.

    Bailey is the best school I ever went to I have went to over 30 school I Loved my visit

    I agree. Suspension is Bailey's only tool. Most of the parents don't care. The good kids suffer for the laziness of the other parents. I'm taking my kid out now!!

    It is not the school or the teachers. It is the parents who refuse to give disaplain to their own kids. How can a teacher teach when you have a student who knows that only thing can happen to them is suspension. The parent is not going to do anything. I have seen young people get up and curse the teacher curse each other do things just to cause attention to them selves and will tell the teacher i do not care if you suspend me.my mother is not going to do nothing to me anyway and it is a shame because it is true.
