This school is absolutely horrendous. I took my daughter here and she was bullied by a PARENT. I mentioned this to the principle and she did not do anything about it. I would definately NOT recommend this school to anyone. Plus, the teachers are complete idiots. The years my daughter stayed here were the worst years of her life. Do NOT go to this terrible school.

I was currently in class Mrs.murga. She prepared us very well but I would be up till 12:00a.m. Trying to finish the homework given with my moms help and it was ridiculous. That wasn't even the Worst part every time there was a open house or back to school night my mom did not see her no she spoke to the substitute.It was my worst year at Baldwin.Although every year except that one was wonderful!!!

I have two kids in Martha Baldwin Studying in 5th and 2nd grade since 2 years. They are doing good and very much happy with teacher and Principal. I am getting excellent behavior from administration when needed. I found School has more focus on Math and Social Science rather than Pure Science. I would like to express my best Wishes for future days.

The Alhambra Unified School District writes down that students with a GPA over 3.6 is considered an honor student. This year, my GPA is 4.0, so I received a Principal's Honor Roll. However, the school gives out the certificates, which states that I 'met the requirement of 3.5 in all academic subject.' This is not true and not fair; Certificates usually state ONLY the NAME and TITLE, NOT THE GPA SCORE. When I show this to other students from other schools, they all think that I have a 3.5 GPA, and not a perfect 4.0. My parents and I talked with the staff, but they ignore the problem and there is no response. It is sad for me because I've worked hard to receive this grade. My friend from another school has a lower score than me. However, the certificate makes it seem like I have a lower grade than her. Our parents do not like the staff of this school.

My child currently goes to Martha Baldwin and I have been very pleased with our experience overall. The teachers in 1st and 2nd grade classes where my son has been in are very patient and know how to motivate kids to do well. My child is taught to take responsibility for his school work since he entered 1st grd and to be independent. Every so often I get notes from teachers letting me know of areas that my child needs help and how parents can assist at home (show they really care!). My child's teachers assign accelerated learning materials and practices where they see fit for my child (assigned works are advanced for my child's grade level yet I learnt that my child handled it quite well). The teachers really care about students while upholding strict disciplines and learning standards. I was impressed to see how much works the teachers have done for my child's classes given it is a public school. My child hasn't encountered bullying experience, he said he hasn't seen it from anyone he knows in school. Principal Ms. Hanacek is very friendly and she helps me to help my child do better. One thing I found strange is this school does not encourage parent involvement.

Compared to other schools in other district, Baldwin school does not support parent involvement. Some teachers and staffs would give you a weird gesture, like what the heck are you doing in here when I tried to be more involved. When asked if we could contact the teachers directly, we would have to call the school. My kids was bullied by other kids in the restroom and on the playground. The staffs don't do anything about it. Their education is average. You could pretty much get it from other schools as well. The lady in the cafeteria is the mean. My boys get yelled at by her.

This school has a good API but it could be better. There is hardly no parent involvement if not any. The school does not seem interested in involving parents unless its for yard duty. This has been many issues of bullying which is so unfortunate for our kids. This school can really go far if they would just allow parents to participate. Arcadia school district thrives on that.

The administration does not support volunteerism unless money is involved. They have restrictions on volunteering in child's classrooms based on teachers' preferences. The principal is fair and personable but I get the impression that she is somewhat detached from what really goes on in the classrooms. Vice principal is ineffective. Teachers are desperately lacking in the social skills arena. They instill a sense that learning is more of a chore than a freedom for critical thought. Program appears to be a lot of drill worksheets throughout the day to ready students for testing. However, there are a few teachers that still incorporate good old fashioned fun learning with paints and song. The school lacks personality but maintains API score, good if you want a child that is able to regurgitate answers on a test - Average at best.

Our oldest child graduated in 2004 where 100% of the students graduated and they were recognized by Presdient Bush. Teachers/Faculty/Aides/Ofc Administration all rock. The field trips are educational and my child started in junior high for he came from private school and this was the best move we did. The academics are equal to the private school next door at Emaus. Now we have the joy of seeing our 2nd child attend Baldwin and is involved in music/sports & drama and is on the honor roll. Way to go Baldwin-keep up the excellent job. To our principle Mrs. H. You totally rock and we are proud to have you at Baldwin. Your doing an awesome job!!!

My child has been going to this school for 3 years. We think this school is a great place for her to get an education at her early age. The principal and all the teachers are great and excellent educators. The front office administration staff should be trained to be friendlier and more attentive. Everytime I go there, I feel like being ignored for the most part.

'No Child Left Behind' ' A Blue Ribbon School' is what you see on the walls at Martha Baldwin Elementary. But behind those walls is my student who was left behind and struggles everyday to keep up with her peers. Someone needs to look into Special Education because these students are failing and my child is one of them.

It's a good performance school. Kids are being encouraged to be creative. And the school environment is good, too.

This is one good school to send your kids. Because I have been a student there. The teachers take time with the students to help them out. And plus this school has high test scores. Everybody ask me from what Elementary school I came from I proudly say Martha Baldwin Elementary school.

I have 1 child who graduated from Baldwin in 2004. 100% of the 8th grade class had graduated and was recognized by a letter from President Bush. No child was left behind. Now I have the joy of seeing my youngest child attend Baldwin who has been there for the past 3 years. The teachers are great, they give 1-1 instructions when needed to each child. They go the extra mile in staying afterschool. The teachers participate in physical activities with the students as well. The curriculum is equal to a private school setting. Test scores have been at a high level for it is a blue ribbon school as well as a distinguished school for the past several years.

Our son attended and we had multiple incidents where the teacher and principal did not take responsibility for their actions and also seem to not be on the same page or for that matter even in the same book. The principal also manipulated certain situations to her benefit and seemed more concerned about her career than the children's education and well being.

In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
