Baldwin Senior High School Reviews

BHS has been my home for 4 years now. From it's diversity in students to its diversity in classes, it has let me experience so much that I could not have by myself. High school opened my eyes to the real world; I am no longer ignorant but educated. Most of us grow up with negative influences around us, whether it be a racist family member or a mannerless cousin. Your experiences in your private life are the conditioning you get for judging others. If what you're conditioned to think about the world was never proven wrong, a lot more people would be ignorant, e.g. slavery would still exist. Your first reaction to something is what you are conditioned to think, but the little voice that comes afterward is what you learn through education and school. If we weren't taught to be openminded, and respectful in school, we would grow up to be racist, homophobic, sexist; people who make others' lives miserable just because they are different. BHS especially allowed me to grow as a person.

Baldwin high school has allowed for everyone to be independent and individual. With all students getting chromebooks that we can customize with stickers to seniors getting the option to paint their parking space. The teachers are exceptional and are always there as an aid to any student in need. Giving students options to choose what we want to do have helped me greatly in the sense that I am able to do things how I want to as long as I follow rules. The freedoms baldwin has, helped me to realize limits and efficient ways to get work done. I can say that thanks to Baldwin high school, I have been able to branch out more and become the best version of myself.
They care about students and use student involvement for many decisions. Embrace cultural diversity and differences in students. Keep up with modern technology. Average emphasis on the arts. Major emphasis on sports specifically football over the arts. Have many AP, Honors, and CHS classes available to students to prepare for college.
