My kids came to the Dorr elementary which in my opinion is the best elementary school in the district caring teachers gone above and beyond to help students. Steeby teachers seem to be aloof always getting notified of student struggles way too late it seems to give out A lot of homework with very little instruction. I believe this is to lessen the class work.
Both of my boys have gone to school here. I love the staff and teachers. They all seem to love to teach and help our children. The school has a very upbeat atmosphere and is always doing stuff to make learning enjoyable.
As a mother of four and a former student I have found Baker to be a warm, creative, nurturing school. I think the secretaries and teachers are great. The school keeps me well informed as do the teachers. Parent volunteering is always appreciated. They always seem to know who you are and exactly whose parent you are. I have nothing but respect and gratitude towards the Staff at baker for the wonderful start they gave my children and myself. My only problem was that in kindergarten and young fives they go all day every day or every other day, and I had thought it would be a better transisition if they went half day every other day in young fives and every day half day kindergarten and then made the change to all day in 1st grade.
