Baker is nationally recognized for educational excellence and serves students in preschool through 8th grade. Our philosophy is rooted in a simple, but powerful idea: an education should do more than help a child excel academically; it should prepare them to thrive throughout life, no matter how different the future may look. While academic excellence is at our core, our hands-on, experiential curriculum is designed to inspire curiosity, creation, and collaboration.
