4 Things About Bailey’s Elementary


Bailey’s Elementary School for the Arts and Sciences is one of two magnet schools in Fairfax County.They have both classroom teachers and specialized educators that focus on the sciences, the arts, and technology. All students that attend Bailey’s are a part of the magnet program.

Bailey’s is one of the few elementary schools in the area that offers the foreign language immersion program. There’s a two way immersion program in Spanish available only through lottery selection for grades kindergarten through second grade. Students are eligible to either the lottery only in kindergarten and first grade.

For students that are not able to participate in the immersion program there is still the opportunity to learn Spanish. Bailey’s also offers the FLES or Foreign Language in Elementary Schools program. The program helps students learn a world language, in this case Spanish, through Science and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) integrated content.


There are about 800 students enrolled at Bailey’s Elementary each school year.

Students living in the Falls Church subdivisions of Aura Heights, Barcroft Hills, Courtland Park, Lake Barcroft, Ravenwood Park, and Vinewood may attend Bailey’s. Bailey’s is in the Justice Pyramid that means if your child goes to Bailey’s they’ll then go to Bailey’s Upper for grades 3rd-5th, Glasgow Middle School then Justice High School.

School Hours

One important thing to consider is the school’s hours of operation. Bailey’s’ hours are Monday through Friday are 8:55 to 3:40 for grades K – 2nd.

If you need to be at work by 8:30 that could present some challenges for you, especially if you’re commuting to the District or the Pentagon.

Bailey’s offers SACC which is a before and after-school program has with the Office for Children of Fairfax County. However, I have to warn you that SACC often times has a waiting list that’s months long. Check out the SACC website to see if there are spots currently available.

If you are unable to get your child signed up for SACC there are a number of private before and after care programs in the area that will drop off and pick up your child.

Parent Involvement

Parent involvement has been linked to student achievement. When looking for a school for your kids you’re also looking for a school that’s a good fit for you as well.

The Bailey’s PTA supports a number of activities in the community including social events and fundraisers. Each school year the PTA offers a number of fee-based after-school enrichment programs. They vary year to year and range from science focused to athletics and the arts.

The school welcomes parents to set up a time with your child’s teacher to volunteer in the classroom, read a book to the class, or come in to have lunch with your child. Your level of involvement can be as much or as little as you like.
