    Baldwin is the only school in Quincy for 4-6 grades so it is a very large school. This is a huge asset for the school because it gives kids so many more opportunities with gifted remedial music and fine arts programs. The teachers are second to none and kids get to learn from a very young age about how to get along with others from all walks of life.

    This is not a very good school. My son was bullied terribly and only had one teacher there who seemed to care. His 6th grade teacher would complain she had no family time because of the class and what she had to grade. The only kids who get help are the loud ones and if your quiet and follow the rules you get ignored.

    This is a large school. Class sizes are making it difficult for a teacher to be effective. Teachers are dealing more with discipline than academics.

    So many opportunities for all kids! A small school feel in a big building. My kids loved it. I felt welcomed and included in my child's classroom.
