Baker High School Reviews
My experience with Baker High is like no other. The teachers and staff care for the students well being. They put our mental health and stability first. I went to Lee Magnet High School my freshman year, and I have never received so much love like I do at Baker. Being in a loving environment can benefit you so much emotionally. It can also help you desire to want to learn and you wanting to be at school just because your teacher is there. At Lee, I was not emotionally stable. I was always depressed, and it seemed like the teachers didn’t care about nothing but the lesson. They never checked on you emotionally. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with caring about the lesson, but having that loving and open relationship with almost all your teachers is amazing. We also have wonderful education. The teachers at Baker care, and i really appreciate them making my years of high school so pleasant.
I have sincerely enjoyed my time as a student at Baker High School. I'm involved in multiple clubs and sports, have good relationships with my teachers, and feel that I am prepared for college. The small student body (of around 400) means that I'm close with my peers. However, I know some kids who've been less successful. Baker is a secluded area. A lack of activities leads to some kids getting into trouble. The facilities are clean, the staff is friendly, and resources are available, but it's still a 4A school in the middle of nowhere. If you take advantage of the community's enthusiasm towards sports, FFA, and other extracurricular activities, Baker High School is an easy place to thrive.
Experiencing high school was the most blissful, carefree, and cherished time of my life. The memories that I made with my friends, teammates, and teachers were irreplaceable. The opportunities for academics, clubs and sports were always a large focus for the school and it's success in building young students. Teachers stayed most days and helped you with the class you struggled with until you walked away understanding and set up for success. It was obvious that the district took the time to hire the best faculty and most supportive, helpful people I've met. I will never forget the kind hearted people in that community who reached out to anyone who needed it. Public events were packed and crowded with people always eager to participate in fun activities. All year long there are funds and community service projects focused on helping the less fortunate. Overall, the city and the high school are both generous and helpful. It is a wonderful place to call my home.
