John M. Bailey School Vision

    In their pursuit of wisdom, the students of John M Bailey School will discover something of value in themselves and return it to society. Our school will provide a safe, functional environment conducive to learning and development of self-esteem. Faculty and staff will strive to achieve their maximum potential, model lifelong learning and positive values, and display understanding, empathy, and respect for all members of the school community.
      We believe that education is the foundation of life successes. Therefore, our mission is to encourage, guide and support all students to reach their highest potential and become lifelong learners contributing to society. In order to accomplish  this mission our school will work cooperatively with students, parents, and the community.
