About this school

As a laboratory school, Baker Demonstration School remains an important part of the teacher-education program at National Louis University, and regularly hosts interns and student-teachers from Northwestern, DePaul, Loyola and the Erickson Institute.

As an independent school, Baker attends to the learning experience of each child while fostering students' sense of being part of something larger, and preparing them for successful paths beyond middle school.
