Bailey’s Upper serves grades 3-5, while the lower grades remain in the original Bailey’s school building. The school board for years had trouble finding land for a new school to relieve severe overcrowding at Bailey’s, so when the office building became available, the board agreed to move fast to purchase and renovate it. The BoS approved the project in June 2014.

The gym project cost $2.9 million, which also includes a 10,000-square-foot outdoor play area and playground and a new bus loop.
