The school has made many adjustments over the years. The staff is very hardworking and welcoming. Baltz now includes before and after care and a wonderful preschool program. The teachers and administration truly care about their school.
Here at Baltz we are about creating, fostering and sustaining relationships. We strive for student engagement every moment of everyday through best teaching practices. Our mission is: to provide rigorous education of all students, value all unique educational needs, use data driven teaching techniques, help develop higher order thinking/problem solving skills, foster a nuturing environment to guide and help all students reach their full potential. Our vision is to establish; a safe positive school climate, with diverse learning opportunities, setting data driven goals for students and teachers, leading responsible, confident and involved citizens. We put the needs of all students aforefront of all decisions!
Baltz is a good place to work. Students are eager to come to school and see their friends and teachers. Each morning kids are greeted at the school doors by a friendly staff member and encouraged to eat breakfast. Teachers then greet students at the classroom door. Teachers know how important it is to develop relationships with students and start the day on a positive note so that the academic, social and emotional needs of students can be met.
Our mission is to inspire and support families to champion their children's education - at
school, at home and in their community. We are a national non-profit with offices and programs
in Oakland, Milwaukee, Washington D.C. and Indianapolis.
