Baldwin is best for kids who are involved in athletics. It's okay for kids interested in the arts, and bad for the kids who use high school as a place to experiment with their interests. Teachers were often mediocre at best. The school doesn't really prepare kids for college or life after high school. I graduated with no idea how to apply to schools or scholarships, jobs, or how to file taxes.

I went moved to Baldwin when I was 5, and transferred to their schools in 4th grade. Baldwin is a very small school, so everyone knows everyone. Many family bonds have been passed down to their children. I have made ever lasting relationships, and memories in this town. The school work at Baldwin High is manageable, and I sometimes wish that we had harder criteria. I have got a lot of support for many staff members in my choice to graduate a year early. I wish that Baldwin High made it easier to get in contact with grades above you. I would have taken a lot away from knowing some inside from upperclassmen. Our Baldwin schools are unique. We have great teacher, which many grew up around here. I love the sense of family and community that I gather from my school. The one thing that I would change, is the ability to get in contact with positive upperclassman to help us with problems or situations. I will never forget the relationships I have gained from Baldwin.
When I started at Baldwin High School as a freshman, I was very nervous and did not feel comfortable in my surroundings at all. As I got further into high school I received encouragement and guidance from many teachers who have helped shape me into the outgoing student I am today. I never imagined myself being as involved as I am now and was afraid of trying new things for the longest time, but the staff at Baldwin High saw the best in me when I struggled to.
