Welcome to Baker Demonstration School

Welcome to Baker Demonstration School, one of the top private schools in the Chicago area. Commonly referred to as “Baker”, we believe that education is life. Our unique curricular approach is built on a foundation of engagement that fosters a love of learning, curiosity, knowing and growing.

Our teachers work with children each day, helping them to make courageous choices and guiding them to own their learning. It is this that inspires children to become an intrinsic learner — to be curious and excited about what mosts interests them as individuals and together as a group. A Baker education is not a destination, it’s a journey of discovery that is cultivated during the formative years and well-beyond high-school and college.

We invite you to imagine a school where children are seen and heard, where wondering is a habit of mind, where questions lead to inquiry, where small and big ideas can evolve into reality. Are you ready to join us in shaping an education for your child? Contact us to learn more!
