my daughter is going to 1st grade here. the teachers are very professioanl and dedicated. you can drop off your kid before class in the morning and they also have gym class in the morning before classes start if you want your child to get extra excersize.
My son went to EM Baker for Kindergarten in Sep 2013 as a 5-year old. He enjoyed it a lot. He made friends to all classmates, he likes the teacher, he respects his teachers more than parents, and he likes the various classes as well. Specifically he has grown into a good habit of reading and writing, which we know is a key emphasis of the Baker school curriculum. We can tell his teacher loves the students a lot. She pays attention to great details of every aspect of each student's life. We feel our son is being taken care of well. One thing I wish my son has more exposure to is computer education.
My children are no longer in elementary school but if I had a child this is where I would want them. The education is exceptional and the environment is warm friendly and caring. IT is a happy place to learn and the administration and faculty are very accessible. Great Neck is lucky to have EM Baker
This school is downgrading. Many students and their families don't have interest to study hard. Teachers wear Louis Vuitton bags and doesn't pay attention to your child. Teachers talk about jewish holidays too much - they forget that this is public school - not religious- and now more asian than jewish kids are there.
