I really do like Ida Baker. I have enjoyed my past 3 years there and I am now in progress of finishing my 4th year in the CNA program. The medical program has overall been an amazing experience and is a huge help for my future! The teachers have been great with getting all the information that the seniors need to know out there and known, they make sure to get the word out so no one will miss out on all the opportunities.

Throughout high school, most of the staff are incredibly reasonable, in the fact that they know how to do their jobs. When walking down the halls, more than half of the teachers will greet you with a smile. One of the major things that hindered me rating Ida S. Baker an excellent score is the student population. We seem to be segregated from each other, and it takes an effect on our abilities to learn with people of different cultures. In the future, maybe enacting a program that forces kids to interact with others, will help avoid the problem.
Overall I cannot say that it is a great school due to the several mistakes that they are making. At this school security is so poor that anyone could easily get into the parking lot and probably later to the school itself because when there is a security guard, he is not watching for security; they are more concerned of keeping students in than of keeping bad ones out. Also, there are multiple rules that are uncomfortable for good students, that do not fix the problem of those who could care less.
