    We have been very happy with the entire Kindergarten team! These teachers are amazing and give their 100 percent everyday. Our daughter is learning so much and seems to really enjoy her time there. Also appreciate the smaller class sizes that allow more one on one time.

    I have a 1st grader at Baileywick and next year a younger sibling will attend as well. I have to say my experience has been a little mixed. The teachers are great and they are the primary people who guide your child. I can't say much about the specials teachers though specifically music & art don't get talked about at home & my son loves both subjects. The Asst. Principle is fantastic! Love the family movie nights and other school wide events. Unfortunately they do not have many resources for AIG only 1/2 time person. I wish they had a few elective options or clubs kids could join. The website is terrible and does not accurately reflect the school.

    I have a second grader at Baileywick Elementary and I am very pleased with Baileywick. My daughters teacher is new to Baileywick this year and my husband and I are very happy she's our daughters teacher. My daughter loves going to school. Her teacher updates parents with what is going on in the classroom via twitter email classroom website and newsletters. The PE teacher is also wonderful. My daughter participated in First and Fitness this year and has an interest in running and being healthy since. The PTA is very active and plans outings and family nights for parents and kids frequently. Baileywick Elementary is a wonderful small community school that is very welcoming with grade A teachers.

    After relocating from a HUGE A-rated school in Florida I have high hopes for our experience at this small school. Wake County is implementing the Common Core Standards this year so there have been some significant curriculum changes but the teachers and new vice-principal have been on it and available to answer any questions. So far we are very pleased with our choice in school.

    I can say without a doubt the teachers including the music art Coach and librarians were "Baileywick" and are what we considered the real strength behind the children. We have enjoyed our daughters to date learning experience. However our interaction with the principle has been very demotivating stressful & useless based on our dealings. Point being we felt we were interacting with any concerns issues with the principal with a lack of respect trust and fairness which has been a very disappointing experience for our daughter as well. It is important to have an all around positive learning experience for your child however having a strong ethical leadership within a principal is important. The Asst. Principal was wonderful and would fill the role more efficiently than the actual principal especially not under that dictatorship. Meet and greets are very important with the admin arena besides knowing who your child will be taught by. We love the teachers they are committed.

    We transferred my daughter to this school last year and now I have two children that go to this school. I am very unhappy and will be taking my kids out of the school at the end of the year. The school is not well mixed and I believe that because of this my children feel out of place and alone. Academically they are fair but not as good as some of the other schools in the area. Totally dissapointed.

    I currently have two very high energy grandchildren who attend this school. I cannot say enough about the quality caring focus on education that the staff and teachers set forth for the children that attend this elementary school. My own children who are now grown-up and have children of their own agree that the quality of education received at this elementary school is far more than they received while attending California public school system. I as a parent/guardian try to be an attentive parent when it comes to homework classroom assistance etc. because I know how hard these teachers and administrators work on behalf of our children. Many thanks to the Kindergarten and third grade teachers. Office staff is awesome as well!
