Overall a good experience, a great place to be! The teachers( for the most part) are great and truly care about their students. The sports are awesome along with the clubs. The diversity is lacking, but that is just due to the surrounding area. The school could do more to make the environment safer and to also hear kids opinions. Sometimes it feels like administration only cares what adults think about the system which can be frustrating at times.

I have been a student at Baker High School for the past three years, and have been in the district for all of my schooling years. At Baker, the teachers are really open to making themselves available to help each individual student throughout the day and after school. We also have great resources, such as the career resource center. The CRC has information about college, military, trade schools and more. I have frequently been going to the CRC throughout my three years at Baker. The staff there has helped me through the college process and more. I also really enjoy our athletics. I have played four different school sports and I have enjoyed each one of them. All of the coaches want to make the players feel the need to improve and help them get there. I consider Baldwinsville the have one of the best athletics programs in CNY. Every student supports each other at different sporting events and there is always a positive attitude, no matter the outcome.
Overall, I have had a positive experience at Baker High School. I have liked the teachers. Also, there are a variety of course options for students and I was able to earn several college credits while still in high school. This will be beneficial when I start my college career. I also feel that the courses I have taken are getting me ready for college. In addition to academics, Baker High School has strong sports programs. Their teams often go far in the post season. We have an excellent music program that has participated in both the Macy's Parade and Rose Bowl Parade. There are some things that could improve. I would like more variety in the after school clubs that are offered.
