My Daughter has been going here since 5th Grade. It has pushed her with her home work very proud she has pulled off Honor roll all of the four years. Teachers are tough but push in a very strong and loving way. My youngest did not make it in in 5th grade. We reapplied in sixth grade shes in, Yea. Its a little tougher for her but she is being pushed with home work and im loving the results. I can say with having my son at Tenya it was the correct fit for him with his friends. But I wouldnt change back to Tenya after experiencing Baird. Its not for everyone give it a chance you wont regret it. Bob

This was the worst school I've gone to! The teachers are bullies, they have 4 classes a day that are two hours long with a 30 minute fun class and a 15 minute lunch break. I wouldn't recommend any child going to school here because if your bullied they just say "noo not baird kids" and walk away because they think baird is the perfect school!

This school is one of Fresno's best kept secrets. Outstanding students and parent involvement. Standards are very high in regards to academics and behavior expectations. None of the nonsense, fights etc. that you hear about at other middle schools. Students take Gate classes and Pre-AP setting them up for Honors and AP classes in High School. Tremendous staff that is actually invested in EVERY student.

I went to Baird Middle for 4 years. The teachers are absolutely fine. They will kid around with you and such. When it comes to getting in trouble once everyone would go against you. The higher staff is extremely fake. The smart people can tell that they don't care what you do they just act everything out. Its just a job, nothing more. No one is simply smiling all the time. When you do something bad they will roll your eyes when you walk by. I am highly ashamed to have been part of this school. Teacher were great, obviously that doesn't matter. Too snobby and they think they are better. The kids there are unkind and they say they are all a family. Nobody has told me such a lie in my life.

If your a caring parent DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD HERE!!! The staff are EXTREMELY rude, patronizing and uncaring. This school should have an investigation on majority of the staff but mostly all the office staff. I have been argued with hung up on numerous occasions. Allbecause they "are right" you as a parent are wrong. Even holding medical forms and medication!!! They held my sons on more than one occasion. They also argued my sons name . Refusing to listen to me on how he has a 2 part last name . Everytime i had to pick him up they had me waiting 20 minutes or more because they would call another student every time. Then laugh as though its a joke. His teachers also go by their own set of rules one refused to fill out a medical form he needed because "she was too busy" . Do not speak to anyone unless u record it tape copy n paste just get your proof. You will need it.

I went to Baird Middle School for 4 years and I could not have went to a better school. The staff there treat you like their family. They love you like you are their kids. If you ever need advice they'll be there for you. The teachers care and no student ever has a bad day at Baird. I remember having bad days at home, I'd go to school and all my problems would dissapear. I am now in High School and everyday I wish I was still at Baird because I feel like I left a part of me behind. I'll never forget the headache I got on Promotion from crying. Baird is such a great school that even boys were crying. Anyone that says anything bad about Baird is lying. Baird = FAMILY <3 - Fabiola A. (Class of 2014)

If you are going to send your child to baird you are absolutely making the right choice. Baird is the best school to help prepare your kids for not just college and hight school but life. They learn everything from academics, top of the line technology, agriculture, foreign language, and the list goes on and on. Baird only has about 500 students in the whole school! and with 4 grades that is only about 125 kids per grade! The local middle school has about 600 kids just for one grade! At baird you get to have personal relationships with all of your teachers and get to joke around with them and have fun! They have won various awards such as being a california distinguished school since 1998, boner character award and others. Baird is simply the best in fresno

I went to Baird for all 4 years (5th-8th grade) I enjoyed going there and got a decent education. The teachers are all friendly, but some of them weren't very productive. For the most part the students are good kids and don't get into to bad of trouble as some of the other schools in Fresno. In high school I feel like I could have been better prepared for all of the Honors and AP classes I am now taking. All together Baird is a good school

I am the proud grandparent of 3 exceptional girls, two of them have completed Baird & gone on to Bullard High, the 3rd one is entering Baird in the Fall. The girls have learned so much, have self assurance, self respect, and most of all have the knowledge gained by the teachings of the wonderful staff at Baird. Thank you so much!!

I believe this school is a great school. My daughter goes here and she is smarter than ever. The teachers push their student to learn and I think my daughter is going to be very good in her future.

This school is very wonderful this isn't coming from a parent but the kid who goes there! I recomend putting your kid in this school because it helps you in many ways: like there is a wonderful german class as Frau Grunberg say wonderbar! Which is german for wonderful. We have the best ag program around thanks to Mr. S. We have a beautiful peace and tolerance plaza it reconizes the people who help out our wonderful world like mother Theresa. We have a wonderful drama program we always go to nationals. Although the school isn't very big you get to know a lot of really good people. We also have a wonderful student coucil. I hope you send your child there.
