I had three children who attented and graduated from Baker School. I never had a complaint or worry that wasn't addressed and taken care of. My youngest Graduated this past year and still goes to visite his teachers. Great family type school!!

My children consistently have not been taught things that are on the fcat. Teachers push their religion. Teachers do not help the students. It has been one issue after another since we moved here, with teachers being rude to my children when they ask for help. Very backwards, not in a good way. Am considering homeschooling for lack of school caring.

This school is horrible. The teachers are rude, they don't help out the students, they treat the student as if they were in jail. Someone should look into the school...
