For those who prefer an education that’s anything but textbook.


Our teachers...

Our teachers create an academically rigorous environment, but they do it in a way that recognizes the unique skills of each student in the classroom.


Our unique approach to teaching and learning...

We focus on providing an education that’s highly experiential, so that students can immediately apply what they’re learning in the classroom to the world around them. Learning happens at a much deeper level when students are able to apply the concepts they’ve learned. So, our teachers are constantly creating experiences that profoundly enhance the learning in the classroom.


Our extraordinary range and quality of educational offerings

At Baker, Art, Drama, Music, Technology, and Dance and Languages are an integral part of the curriculum.
