Incredible teachers, beautiful facility, and very friendly staff. Nestled in the beautiful lakeshore town of South Haven, MI, this community is a hidden gem of the Midwest. We moved here from Chicago five years ago and this school rivals some of the best public schools in the City. One of Baseline''s attributes is its diversity and culture in a rural area. The school is continually making changes and adding new afterschool clubs and enrichment programs. I feel grateful to be part of such a wonderful community.
