Across the spectrum, the principal, teachers, and support staff provide a setting of nuturing and learning for all kids from pre-school to age 22. The goals of educating extend beyond the classroom to include special olympics, horse therapy, community outings, music and move ent therapy for a wonderful group of kids with disabilities from mild to severe. Kids are excited to get to school and the growth can be appreciated in their social, emotional, physical and academic development preparing them to thrive in their lives well beyond school.

This school does wonders for special needs children. It also helps parents by putting their minds at ease, knowing that their children are being well taken care of.

Jessie Baker School is a special school that takes the time and energy to help all kids with special needs. Not just sitting for the parents while at work but building the kids confident and independence which all of us want. If these special need kids don't have this school where would they be and what will we as parents and society do for them. We as a community will not drop everything and come in and help because that is not our nature. This is why we need to keep Jessie Baker School open because these are people that cares and takes their own time and efford to teach and help the kids to be independent and to give the parents a chance to work and provide for their kids. We need more school that care for our children. Thank you Jessie Baker School for all that you do and more!!!

The welcoming and loving atmosphere, as well as the caring and dedicated staff make this school the best for children with developmental/learning disabilities. everything is located on-campus, from PT, OT, speech therapy, music, computer lab, and Project R.I.D.E.--therapeutic horseback riding. It truly is an awesome place : )

This is a school for special needs students from the age of about three to 22 yrs of age. The principal, teachers, aids are all there because they love the students. It is not easy to deal with a lot of these students but these people are there and they care. They are loving, patient, kind and they go above and beyond for each of the students.
