Baker Elementary School is a community of learners that will empower all students to become confident, self- directed, life- long learners.
"A Community of Learners, Where Students Come First!"
Baker Elementary School will serve as the foundation for the future of our students by giving each one every opportunity to demonstrate creativity, challenge their capabilities, appreciate individual differences, and become lifelong learners. Our faculty ensures that curriculum drives our decisions regarding explicit instruction through hands- on learning and technology. The learning environment at Baker Elementary School seeks to enable students to be constructive thinkers. We believe that consistent and constant access by the individual learner to the learning tool of their choice strengthens their evolution as a critical thinker, thereby ensuring their success in the future. The Bake Staff, Parents, and Community will work collaboratively to maintain and produce a safe and positive learning environment where all students learn. We will teach and instill in our students to be the B.E.S.T.!
(Be Prepared, Exemplify Respect, Stay Safe, Take Responsibility)
Our TEAM effort, (Together Educating All Minds) will bond us in a positive effort toward this mission.
