Our children go to this school and it is an incredible place! Baker makes learning come alive to the children. They have been exposed to so many amazing hands-on experiences including: middle school camping trips, middle school microlending project, kindergarten butterfly migration work, theater productions, an all-school 5k, artistic explorations (clay, 3d printing, photography, paintings, mosaics, and more), big buddy/little buddy relationships between older students and younger ones, social justice work, middle school dual language (Spanish/Latin) work, differentiated challenging math curriculum, and so much more. Baker students go on to succeed at many of the top high schools in the area both public and private because they have developed a love of learning that goes beyond grades. Baker also dedicates a major portion of its budget to financial aid package to help foster a diverse community from a wide range of socio-economic, racial, religious, and ethnic backgrounds.

Baker has been an outstanding education and social experience for our entire family.

My children are known well by their teachers, and I see how they are allowed to BE THEMSELVES as valued members of the community. Hands-on, experiential learning is tied to a strong curriculum, and learning is differentiated in small classrooms with teachers who continually adjust plans to meet student interests and enhance learning.

Teachers and administrators are communicative and accessible, instilling respect, integrity, tolerance, and compassion. It is a joy to be part of a place where children are put front and center in a safe, caring, and truly exciting learning environment.
We absolutely love Baker. We intended to leave after preschool and put our children in the public schools (Evanston) but now have been here almost 8 years. Our girls are excited every morning for school, and we love who they are becoming. Baker is educating them as curious learners and thoughtful community members. The teachers care deeply for the students, and help them develop both academically and socio-emotionally, which are deeply connected. The girls are becoming advocates for themselves, and developing flexibility and openness for a changing world. We are professors and see college students missing important traits and skills (many lack independence and are full of anxiety, fear of risk taking, and rigidity/performing to the test, etc.), and think Baker is an important antidote to such problems. We couldn't be happier. We love Baker and want to share it with others.
