    My review is more than a bit out of date but I attended and graduated from E.C. Baker school in the 60's and it was a great school back then. I'm glad to see that the school continues its commitment to excellence despite significant changes in society. I remember having many lovely friends and classmates and would say the best feature was the school's quality atmosphere for learning not high pressure but rather engaging.

    I went to this school for 10 years (k-9) and I will never forget it it was the best learning experience I ever had. The teachers are so determined and driven to make make sure every student understands every subject. The wide array of extracurricular activities help children to find interests beyond the academic walls. This school is truly exceptional and in my opinion is the perfect example of a superb school.
