Ida S. Baker High School Reviews
since my freshmen year, i noticed a big difference in the teachers and skills compared to middle school. I thought it would be hard but what makes it difficult is their teaching habits. Their lack of knowledge is effortless and they assume for us to learn the material ourselves. It is their job to teach us as students and to give us a suitable amount of homework. Nowadays, school is about finishing the work not learning the material which is horrendous.
The school is very good. The teachers really cared about the students and the lessons were very thorough and to this day I remember some of them. the counselors did their very best to help students succeed. It was also a very good environment and very safe as well.
I would like to see more prep for seniors---preparation for admission testing, more assistance finding scholarships
Ida S. Baker is a great school because of the academic academy's they offer for students going into different fields such as Medical, firefighting, teaching, automotive and more. Teachers are always willing to work with students on their own time so that they can achieve excellence. My school is constantly working to be a model school in the community by volunteering & local benefits. Ida S. baker is an amazing school!!!
Ida S. Baker is a good school. The teachers all are very interactive an get to know each kid individually. I made great memories at this school and met the bests of friends.
I loved all the opportunities I had to explore my possible future career choices! Overall the teachers were great and I only had one teacher that seemed un-enthused.
My high school experience at Ida S. Baker High School was an overall good experience. I am involved in the medical academy here and I enjoy it very much. I have a fair amount of opportunities to better myself and my education. I would like to see the administration be more involved, however. I feel like we need a better connection and more support from the administation
Ida S. Baker is just a normal High School. We have our sometimes fun events, like pep rallies, homecoming, prom etc. Our school lunch is well, school lunch. If you are looking for a diverse school, this is not the school for you, we only have white and hispanics. I wish our school was more diverse and had more school spirit in general.
I loved the programs they had available to the students such as the Medical Academy or the Automotive Academy. The teachers were excellent and well back grounded we just lacked resources to learn more.
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.
I liked the first two years, when we had phenomenal teachers and administration was more relaxed. My experience has deteriorated over the years, though, as more teachers have left and been replaced by less lively teachers.
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.
I love the amount of rigorous classes the school offers as well as the school's JROTC program. However, there is barely any parent involvement, no spirit or motivation in the school itself. I like the fact we are able to have some opportunities such as the AP capstone program and the other academic advances we can take, however, I dislike the fact that if we have to search for that information rather than have it given to us to seek that opportunity.
Ida Baker is an excellent school academically, but the students are not able to express themselves in school spirit or in activities involving the entire school. Administration is very strict and we have an amazing security team here, but it truly restricts the students sometimes.
Ida S. Baker is truly one of the best schools in the county. I was heavily involved in their JROTC program, and I can honestly say that the cadets do perform remarkably well in competitions despite having a restrictive budget. I just wish the administration team would listen more to what the students have to say.
Ida S. Baker is an excellent school. I've been had so many academic and elective opportunities this school has provided. While school may be overwhelming due to how many students there are, it's always reassuring to know our safety is well looked after by the wonderful administration. I'm excited to continue my academic journey with this school in order to prepare me for college and a career later in life.
My experience at Ida S Baker high school has been amazing... I wouldn’t trade my experiences for anything. It is a great place to go to school and there are numerous opportunities. I played varsity Baseball for three years and it has been the most fun playing baseball ever. All the teachers support you and can do all to their ability to help you in anything you need. The AP courses at Ida Baker are excellent.. they are great classes to get you ready for college and have the best teachers
I would definitely like to see a change in the experience of the guidance counselors. I received no help with college applications whatsoever and felt like I was drowning.
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.
What I like most about attending Ida BAker High Schools is the students attending here. The overall school spirit is outstanding, all students love to get involved and help improve the school in better ways. But our administration needs to let loose on the restrictions of school spirit participation.
