Ida S. Baker High School was my first high school choice because it offered the medical program. When I was in the medical class in middle school, I just knew I had an interest in the field. I was determined to work hard to get into Ida Baker. That determination ended up being the best decision I ever made. The beginning of high school I only focused on school work. It wasn’t a mistake, but I missed out on a lot of school events. Sophomore year when I started to get more involved, I found myself entangled with the school. I was meeting tons of new people, building great connections with teachers and just having a good time. I never thought about participating because I didn’t see a point. After the years I put into baker, I’ve come out with a sense of belonging and purpose. Ida baker helped me excel my social skills, my connections, and ability to put myself out there. I’ve grown some sort of confidence to make me think I can do what I want if I just went for it.

Ida Baker High School is a great place to be! The teacher truly care about the students and success. They don't only focus on the education but how the students will be after high schools as well. They want everyone to be well off. If something concerns us students the faculty will ensure that everything is situated and listen to our needs.
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.
