Baldwin Middle School is amazing! Most of the teachers are sooo nice, and teach us as much as they can to make us better people! The lunch is good, and they have a salad line, to keep us nice and healthy. If you're a new student, stay away from the stuff that looks bad, like THE BACON BITS. I love how they have personal dressing to choose from, and it really helps you personalize your sandwich, wrap, or salad. The principal has his ways but he tries to make us the best he can. The only problem about BMS, is how some of the kids influence others, and to be honest any school would change you like ours, but you have to know to be yourself, and not curse like a sailor, get into fights, and act like a "gangster". if you can get through that, get through honors, and face the fact that some people will turn on you, and you will loose friends in the 3 years you're there, you'll have an amazing time :)

My daughter learned a lot from this school... She was in ALL honors & struggled in Science but with extra help & tutoring she did wonderfully on her regents.... I was definitely worried about sending her to this school but the teacher were wonderful... Yes the kids can be rowdy but we have parents must take some responsibility on who are kids are around. My daughter made some great friends... Great school overall

This school is fun and many activities to do. But now since there is a budget cut some sports and clubs have been cut from the school. In school there are a lot of fights in the 7th and 8th grade over basically nothing. Most of the teachers are nice. No one follows the dress code. The principle is strict. The halls are a little crowed between classes. But over all the school is good and teaches kids good life lessons.

My son completed 6th grade in June 2010. He and I were extremely dissapointed with the academic year. There was a total disconnect with the team of teachers. Every time I called the school it t took a week to get a call back and no meeting was ever scheduled. His math teacher was abscent about 90% of the academic year that I had to call and complain. My son spent more time with substitutes which frustrated him. The rest of the teachers were just okay. With that said, the test scores are not surprising to me and it confirms my concern that I expressed to the school. Socially things went very well and the PTA is great. Unfortunately, he will have to do another year here, unless I can get him into a private school.

This is my daughter's first year at the middle school. She loves it! She is doing well and likes her teachers. There are many activities for her to choose from and she has tried a few that she enjoyed. We just saw the school play, which was excellent!

I have been at BMS for two years. It is really fun. The food at the cafeteria is really really good!!! The only bad thing is to much fights and cursing and bullying.

This is my child's first year at BMS and so far he is doing really well. His teachers have been supportive and have had communicated well with me when needed. He has made many new friends and is very happy there.

This is my child's first year at BMS and I am not impressed. Teachers do not seem like they care if a student passes or fails. I have had issues with communication with teachers. I have been up to the school multiple times already and have had to challenge teachers to accept accountability for their shortcomings. I am moving out of Baldwin because I want to get my children out of this school .

This is my child's second year in Baldwin Middle School and so far it has been a very good experience. Mr. Brown should be proud of the upward direction the school is experiencing, academically. There are also many programs and clubs for the children to become involved in. There's something for almost everyone. One drawback is the large enrollment of students. The school is over-crowded. The PTA should be more active and visable.

As a new parent to the Baldwin schools but not to the community, I am extremely happy with what this school offers my children academically, athletically and socially. The vigorous honors program is challenging to say the least, along with all the sports and clubs offered to the children, keeps all the preteens and teens busy and happy. The constant encouragement from the coaches, teachers, deans, and administrators goes above and beyond just doing your job.I'm very happy with the middle school and so are my children.

We are very happy with Baldwin Middle School. There is a challenging honors program and plenty of extra-curricular programs to keep the kids involved in positive activities. At a time when many schools have to cut back on the extras, I am grateful that our community supports band, orchestra, team sports, plays, and even 'youth center' to give our kids social and creative outlets for all their middle-school energy. Worth every dime of my property taxes.

We have two children which graduated from BMS. The programs available are great...from the 'Broadway' quality plays, to their music program. My youngest is now in the football team and had made a dramatic improvement in all his academic classes.
