School Vision:  We strive to provide a quality education for all of our children.

 

School Mission: To develop educated students who are responsible, productive, and caring citizens by providing an opportunity for their intellectual, physical, and cultural growth in a positive, challenging, and safe environment

 

Belief Statements: We believe that a key to academic success is the partnership between students, teachers, parents, and the community.

 

We believe students should be given the tools to think critically, to reason, and to solve problems.

 

We believe instructional decisions should be based on on-going assessment of student progress and research-based practices.

 

We believe the mission of Baker School will be achieved by ensuring that all students will:

  • Read with understanding
  • Communicate ideas clearly and effectively through writing
  • Solve short and extended response problems (reading, science and math)
  • Use mathematical concepts to solve real-world problems
  • Make positive contributions to our school and community
  • Be responsible for actions and choosing appropriate behaviors
  • Recognize the value and worth of others
  • Work cooperatively and collaboratively with others
  • Set personal and career goals

 

We believe these desired outcomes for students will be achieved in an educational environment where adults will:

  • Use best practices and resources to enhance student performance
  • Participate in professional development
  • Be positive role models
  • Recognize and accept the diversity of students
  • Work cooperatively with others
