Updated 2015 - High School lost 80% of its student population when neighboring town that tuitioned in their students pulled out. There are now only 75 kids TOTAL in grades 9-12. No choices, school like a ghost town. Academics poor, social atmosphere even worse.

Both of my children attended and graduated from George F Baker High School. They received a wonderful all around educational experience. The teachers, administration and support staff know the students, communicate with the parents and guide the students through their high school years. I often felt they were receiving a private school education. The classes are small and educationally nurturing and the opportunities to participate in varied activities plentiful.

I'm a freshman and was nervous coming to high school. I was pleasantly surprised how friendly and close everyone was. The teachers are excellent, and genuinely care about helping students. Something different about this school is that students don't talk badly about teachers behind their back. Some classes are difficult, but the teachers and other students are always there for help. My grades have improved since I came here, classes I've been failing before, I have a full understanding of now, and I have great grades in all of my classes. The principal and assistant principal are reasonable guys, who understand the students yet keep order and enforce the rules. I would definitely recommend this school.

Excellent, the best school in the United States, I am sure of it! EVERYONE there is like family, I miss the school dearly and highly reccomend it to ANYONE, everyone shares an upbeat and fun spirit while still preserving that old fasioned sense of closeness, community and friendship! A beautiful school filled with inspirational teachers, counselors, librarians, even great cafeteria staff! Everyone is friendly, close, and there for you. Mr. Petrilak is a superb prinicipal who gets very attached to the students, he sees them as children of his own in a way, and truly cares and is concerned about there happiness. He wants to see his school smile. Dr. Tripkan is another great woman full of charge but also a charming comical sense that balances the schools sense of getting things done while having fun : ) I am a 2007 grad. of GFB, a place to grow

Too small, but everyone knows everyone and teachers will help you one on one. Not enough sports, not that many choices. But the choices we do have, we excel at them greatly.

As parents of a freshman from Greenwood Lake NY we have to say that after visiting the school, and agreeing to send our only begotten son...we were pleased. But recently we attended 'meet the teacher night,' and we were very impressed. The teachers are enthusiastic, and organized, and all around informative. It had a college setting and feel, and we were pleased to hear wonderful things from each teacher about our son. We pray Greenwood Lake NEVER gets their own H.S because they will never be able to offer such a Professional, fair, and all around fantastic experience to our children.G.F. Baker H.S was CLEARLY a place of 'intelligence' that Greenwood Lake could NEVER in a MILLION years at this rate TOUCH! Eeinna Akers
