Baker Demonstration School Ratings & Reviews

I know Baker Demonstration School in Evanston is working for my children when I see how happy they are to go to school in the morning and how they approach their studies with focus, interest and excitement. It’s the kind of education experience I wish I had at their ages (8 and 12), and I highly recommend Baker for families who want their children to be taught not WHAT to think but HOW to think critically and creatively about the world, issues and people around them.Baker is unique not just for its academic excellence as an independent school but for its project-based learning philosophy, which builds on what we know about how children learn the best.As a parent, I am grateful that the school additionally provides an array of exceptional programs, including art, music, drama, dance, and P.E. (including swimming) as well as aftercare when needed. I am grateful, too, for the diverse community of friends — across the school, and across grades — that our family has gained here. And I appreciate that Baker opens its doors to parents and community members so that I never feel as if I am being shut of my children’s educational process.Baker Demonstration School is an extraordinary place where everyone does their best so that our children can develop growth mindsets and become their true selves, in their own unique ways.

Our children have had a fantastic experience at Baker. We originally wanted a public school experience for our children, but during the our child's year in kindergarten at our local school, she lost her zest for learning and was focused on the very public and very rewards-based behavior system. At Baker, our children celebrate learning and their role as members of a community. Our eighth grader leaves Baker with a fantastic academic foundation, leadership skills, a thirst for social justice, and a sense of herself as a learner, advocate, and ally that will carry her through high school and beyond.

Baker is a gem of a school. We transferred our child to Baker from public school when the public school was failing to keep our child safe so they could focus on learning. The minute we walked through the doors we knew Baker was different... everyone was so welcoming and inclusive... they made our child feel a sense of belonging And safety from the day she walked through the doors for her school tour. The academics are thoughtful and focus on hands on learning...the school activities available are also thoughtful to make sure kids get a well rounded experience. Baker teaches children not to be test takers, but to be life long curious learners. Moving our child to Baker was the best choice we made for our family.

We love Baker and more importantly our children love going to school everyday. They feel safe at school and Baker has truly helped develop their confidence. We couldnt be happier there.

Baker has been a great experience for my son. We choose Baker because of the focus on experiential learning and its philosophy that puts the child at the center – where each student can take ownership and help direct his/her learning. This was crucial for my son, who entered Baker in 4th grade, because I knew he learned best when he was “doing” and also needed to build confidence in speaking and learning the skills of self-advocacy. We have been gratified with our Baker experience – within weeks of entering school, he was thrust into “Baker Business School”, where the 4th and 5th graders pitched product ideas, formed companies, applied for jobs, negotiated loans, developed marketing plans and websites and had “manufacturing week” where they built their products. The 8-week unit culminated in a product fair where parents, students and teachers could purchase the wonderfully creative items. Our son came home each night animated about his job as CFO and talking about things that I might have thought were out of his grasp – but really weren’t. Thank you Baker!
