This school isn't the greatest. Some of the teachers can be terrible, class following can be difficult, and they don't do too much with bullying and other issues of such. My experience is terrible. I'd like to think of myself as above average, but most, if not all teachers have some serious flaws. I don't recommend this school because lots of social issues are prevalent and they don't do much with it. 5th to 6th grade transition was great, but 7th and 8th, more of 7th, are hard. I'm in the higher grade level math classes, and it is really difficult with one of my teachers, as he was ignorant. Speaking with someone ignorant or not able to take criticism is hard. I rate this school so low because of the huge flaws in teaching, dealing with issues, and the lack of student-administration connection level. This school is lacking lots. I would not recommend this school.

I went to John T. Baker a few years ago and I had a very poor experience. The administration is unhelpful and incompetent when dealing with certain situations. There’s a profound lack of diversity at the school. This is a problem as it creates closed-minded behavior which myself and some of my peers experienced firsthand.
I think it's a great family oriented town with good values.
