Baker Demonstration School

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Since its foundation in 1918 by Elizabeth Harrison, Baker Demonstration School has provided early childhood education to students in pre-kindergarten through 8th grade. Baker strives to impart upon its students traits of success, which the school describes as critical thinking, inquiry, the ability to draw conclusions, apply knowledge and make informed decisions. The school's diverse curriculum emphasizes experimental and real-life learning methods. Students can expect to spend time out of the classroom applying what they're learning to the world outside. The classroom design also reflects this philosophy and is free of traditional desks, instead using tables in a comfortable atmosphere. A number of extracurricular activities are offered for every age group and include music, chess, tae kwon do, swimming and more. The facility features a pool, gym, playgrounds, theater and drama, music and art studios.</p>
<p>The school also offers extended-day programs for students requiring extra care before and after classroom hours, as well as several summer camp programs once class is out of session.</p> <p>For students wishing to apply to Baker, applications are due January 31st for first-round consideration and between March 20th and May 1st for second-round consideration.</p>
