Baker School has proudly been serving the surrounding community since 1915 and celebrated its Centennial during the 2015-2016 school year. In 2013, Baker School was recognized by the Florida Legislature with the distinction of being named as a Heritage Site for becoming the first accredited school in Okaloosa County in 1923. Baker School operates as three schools in one serving Kindergarten through twelfth grades with a student population of almost 1,400 students. Our geographically districted zone comprises roughly one fourth of Okaloosa County with the majority of our students being transported by our stand alone fleet of buses. We serve a diverse population of families ranging from agriculture to business to military. Approximately 54% of our student population is eligible for the free and reduced food program. Our elementary grades are designated as a Title 1 school-wide program serving 625 students in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade.
Baker School enjoys a unique opportunity to influence the academic and social progress of students throughout their educational career. Many students attend Baker from kindergarten through graduation with many of them being second, third and even fourth generation Baker Alumni. Quoting a previous SACS Review Report summary, “Baker School is the center of the community it serves in Okaloosa County. Students, parents, faculty, staff and members of the community are proud of the school, it heritage and the role it plays in their everyday lives. Many parents and members of the faculty are graduates of Baker School. This K-12 school offers a “family” atmosphere rarely seen today.”
Baker School offers its students an array of academic opportunities to pursue a college or career-ready post-secondary path. High school students may choose to take Advanced Placement and honors courses and our middle school students can take many classes for high school credit. Our elementary schedule allows us to challenge our advance learners while remediating our struggling learners.
Here at Baker School we pride ourselves for being a K-12 Community School and believe that it offers a unique educational experience like no other.
