I am currently going into the 11th grade and I love it here. I have seen reviews saying things about how its all about who you know. Well I can tell you that is wrong. My parents nor me really hot to know anyone in the school until later on. Possibly somewhere in middle school. But the key is behaving. If your children behaved maybe they wouldn't be suspended? Anyway I have never really have had a problem with anything here except for other students. But for the person complaining about teachers not doing anything or doing to much teachers are usually not around or not paying attention to that particular group of students at that time. And if no one else sees it/no proof or if no one reports it nothing will happen. People's time in school is only as good or bad as they make it. And this school is no different. All the teachers care a lot about each of their student's success. One more thing id like to add... How 'bout that "Sound of the swamp"? BHS Band )

I have really enjoyed my children being in this school. The teachers run the school and not the children. I have a high schooler and an elementary school child. I thought that not being from the area would be a disadvantage but they really care. If you show involvement with your child and your kids are respectful they will be fine.
This school is all about who you know.They single out kids and find every little thing they can to suspend them and then they send them off to schools that are not any better.They kids kids end up dropping out.I wonder what the real total is for drop outs are for this school?I will never tell any of my friends to send their kids to this school.
My children are in 6th and 8th grade and have been going to Baker School since Kindergarten. I have never had any problems with the school. The teachers have all been caring and willing to go the extra mile to help with any issues. It is a small town school with a lot of community support. All of the staff is friendly and my kids enjoy attending this school.
This is the most backwards school I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I've got two children attending this school (2nd and 5th) and Baker is without a doubt the worst school! One morning I went into pick up my boys for a dentist appointment and it took them 35 minutes to "find" my 7 year old! Ridiculous that they have no idea as to what the heck is going on and where their students are. The teachers are either way over involved in what the kids are or aren't during like sending home notes because my 10 year didn't eat his entire sandwich at lunch or not involved enough like turning the other cheek to a bunch of older kids stealing his lunch 3 days later! If you looking to move to this area look into putting your kids in a different school seriously!
My son is a student here and is actively participating in the oncampus dual enrollment classes through NWFSC that are taught during the swchool day. The teachers of all his classes are the best I have ever seen and the family atmosphere of a kindergarten through 12th grade school if phenominal.
I'm an alumni. I graduated from baker in 2004.. I attended baker K-12 and I loved it.. I knew all the teachers and they knew me. They made it a point to see that I succeeded. I also was in a ton of extracurricular activities. I am now graduating from college with a BA in psychology and sociology.
I think that this is one of the best school that I have ever attended it is such a close-knit community. I am currently in tenth grade and attended baker for 1 year. Mr. Shipp and Mrs. Hayden are wonderful. The teachers are some of the best you will find anywhere. I love this school.
My son goes to Baker and he likes the teachers but I have had plenty problems with the Administration.
My son is a Freshman and this his first year at Baker. We are very pleased with the ROTC program and the accountability the coaches require for students to partcipate in the sports program. I am very impressed with the principal and vice-principal and the committment to educate the children.
