At Baker High School I was very successful. I learned many things beyond general education. I learned how to love one another, create forever friendships, grow up and how to survive in the real world outside of high school. I was blessed to receive many titles there especially within the music department. I was drum major for the marching band for two years and remained a principal player my whole time at Baker High School while actively participating in many different organizations within the school such as key club, Fccla, and more. After graduating Baker High School with a 4.0 gpa along with all of the many awards I've worked hard for, I was presented with many opportunities leaving there and I am forever grateful to my alma mater!

I absolutely love my school! They have so many opportunities for each student. We have the best teachers that care about their students and love their job. The only thing I would change would be the arts program. The dance team, marching band, choir, and drama does not get enough recognition. As an athlete on dance team, we go all school year and during the summer. We give up countless breaks for practices. We also perform with the band during football season. We do the play each year with the drama team. While we do this we are preparing for our own competitions . We go to regionals and nationals each year and place very high. We perform at pep rallies and other school events that we have. Our principal goes to every sporting event but has not come to one of the arts events. We have band concerts all the time and dance team put on shows every semester. The arts need some love from the rest of the school. We are just as important as any sports team.
My experience at Baker High School was memorable and free of strife. Baker High school provided lots of different opportunities for their students. They have several different academies for students to be in while getting the credits they need to graduate. The current principal of Baker High School made school fun without taking away the educational portion of learning. All of my teachers were committed to helping through my high school experience. The staff overall was devoted to making sure their students got the help that they needed to succeed. Baker High school allow all of the athletic and academic students be recognized for all of their hard work and detection. They did this is by announcing it on the BHS news which featured some of baker's most outgoing students and, giving us amazing pep rallies to support our athletic and academic peers. I definitely want to thank Baker High School's staff and my high school peers for giving me a unforgettable high school experience.
