Baker Ratings & Reviews

November 23, 2015 Submitted by a parent
I have always been weary of this school for various reasons since I was a teenager. so when I found out my child would be attending this year I was hesitate to just accept it. But, because they wanted to stay with friends I let my personal issues go. I wish I would have stuck to my instincts because from the moment I stepped foot on this campus I have had nothing but extremely bad experiences. The first time I was in the office I was completely ignored while they attended to the needs of parents coming in after I did that were clearly more well known. Once I was acknowledged I was treated with short curt answers & rudely directed where to go like I should have just known all along. In addition to this I learned that I do not like the idea of any school telling me where or when I need to purchase things. They force parents to purchase their over priced shirts & sweatshirts as well as force students to conform to their idea of what it is to be organized. The students are required to purchase & maintain to the schools liking a huge binder. I have seen some of the smaller children struggling just to hold on to this thing! They will be punished if it is not in order or brought to school each day. Although purchasing the Avid binder & supplies saved us money. It took away the enjoyment my children & I had when it was time to do our back to school shopping. Besides what money we saved on the school supplies we lost in the price of the uniform requirements. I don't mind the uniforms at all. But, I do mind not being able to purchase enough clothes for my child for the entire year on my own budget & clearly with my first experience in the office I am extremely hesitate to walk back in the office to purchase more shirts. I much prefer buying clothes at a store!They do have a low price closet but with the already being treated poorly plus the stories I have heard about bulling. I don't care to place my child in the position to be known as the kid who got his clothes in the closet.The other thing that has made me totally done with this school is they use words more commonly known to be used in military schools. Demerits & "Civi" (civilian) days. Students can wear everyday clothing if they have achieved such a reward. It feels like the good kids are being punished for the bad ones. I wish more parents felt like this so we could change the negatives together.

This school has a bullying problem. I went to Baker years ago and got picked on so severely that by the time I got to high school I had developed emotional problems and had become suicidal. Now the child of a family friend has just started there, and already he's telling us about how the other kids are harassing him. . . Sounds like things haven't changed one bit. If you care about your children's safety and emotional well-being, do NOT send them to Baker.

I love Baker because there is an amazing sense of family loyalty and understanding among (and between) the students and staff! There is no better place to grow, laugh and learn!
