Our daughter LOVED her kindergarten teacher at Baldwin and we regreted having to move to another state for job relocation. The facilities were a little outdated (no gymnasium). I cannot say enough nice things about the teacher-student relationship and not just my daughter's teacher, but the whole staff was generous with their time, energy and smiles. I would definitely reccommend this school to anyone who wants their child to develop a relationship with the school. The PTA was also seeming to revive and work on involvement as well.
Baldwin is wonderful school that focuses on the academic needs of it students. Each year my daughter has been blessed with teachers that have provided a caring climate with a rigorous curriculum. The staff does an great job of communicating with parents. Her current teachers communicate through emails, progress reports, homework logs, and by posting updated grades on NC wise. This has allowed me to monitor her progress through out the year. Due to their dedication my daughter has been able to thrive in 5th grade. The principal, Mr. Yardis, has also done a fine job of keeping parents informed of the changes in the curriculum. He has reached out to the parents by giving parents the opportunity to learn about the new standards through curriculum nights, parent sessions with administrators, and school "walk-throughs". These have been valuable experiences which allowed me to ask questions and discuss any concerns I may have with the full attention of the teacher and/or administrators. Baldwin is a GREAT school because of its exceptional teachers, friendly staff, and strong leadership. We have loved our time hear and are sad about leaving.
My daughter is now in 2nd grade and has been at Baldwin since Pre-K. She loves going to school! I feel confident in dropping her off every morning and knowing that she will have a quality education. She's had fantastic teachers every year and I know that she will continue to have a great elementary school experience.
My son is a kindergarten student at Baldwin. He LOVES his teacher and believes anything his teachers says is the absolute and only truth. I love the fact that students are offered many rewards and incentives for good behavior and that families are offered events to attend together, like game night and reading night. The staff members are friendly, helpful, and hard-working. I have enjoyed my son's experience at the school!
Being at Baldwin for a few years now, change is ALWAYS hard because there are always positives and negatives present. By far, Baldwin has been the best in embracing new changes from the state dealing with The Common Core. Mr. Yardis (Principal) has gone above and beyond by informing the parents of the new standards & being interactive in helping our children succeed. The caring staff utilize remediation and enrichment time which is scheduled into my children's normal school day. I LOVE the individualized attention my son receives from Mrs. Hart. He gets a weekly progress report outlining strengths and weaknesses. I couldn't ask for a better school that embraces learning and addresses EACH individual need that each child represents. Ms. Blumenschien does an outstanding job in informing us through phone calls, letters and e-mail. My younger child LOVES working with the IPADS. The individualized attention is also expanded through use of classroom technology in lap tops. TEST SCORES MEAN NOTHING THIS YEAR as the state is in the process of changing to new standards. I am thankful for positive changes and look forward to seeing the "proof in the pudding".
I have been extremely pleased with the faculty and administration at Baldwin Elementary School. I have two of my sons enrolled in Kindergarten, and I have been very pleased with what goes on in the classroom. The teachers are effective and caring, and the administration is very involved in trying to make Baldwin the best school possible. Teachers are willing to tutor students who are falling behind, and I have never had any difficulty getting in touch with a teacher, or the principal for that matter.
My child has attended Baldwin for several years. We are a part of the military community, moving and deployments. The teachers and staff have shown true caring and understanding in helping my children deal with difficult situations. Teachers are professional, understanding and hard working; I only hope my son's middle school experience fairs as well!
When I moved to Hope Mills, Baldwin was a 7 in rating (2009). Last year school I enrolled my daughter into the school for kindergarten the rating was a 5. After 12 months they have drop to a 4! So you can see where this is going. I regret putting my daughter this school where the teachers have no control in their classrooms, the majority of the students have no interest in learning and the administration doesn't seem to care what is going on in the classrooms. I would blame the parents for not being involved or taking action but that's just not the case here. Because three miles down the road is Rockfish Elementary and they seem to know how to run a school with a rating of a 9 (they had a 8 in 2009) and I hardly hear parents or teachers complaining about the behavior of the students or the education slacking. If I could move my daughter I would.
This school is okay! It is not all that to me at ALL!!!!! I love Mr. Patterson!!! He is an awesome teacher, role model, and disciplinarian. Mrs. Helms was awesome she was at this school. The school does not have a playground or gym for the students. The leader also known as the principal is very rude!!!! He walks right pass the parents and students and never speaks. The front desk lady is also not friendly at all!!!! Please look for another school for your child to go to. This school is very poor and the teachers dress horrible.
Baldwin is an awesome place to send your children to school. The teachers are very kind, caring individuals. Tutoring is offered to students after school for all 3-5 classes and some of the K-2 classes. The office staff is always very friendly. I couldn't ask for a better school!
All I can say is... I love this school and its amazing teachers! We are a military family that has moved around a lot. When we relocated here in 2003, our girls attended Ed V. Baldwin. Transition is never easy and this school and teacher's eased the transition quickly. By making learning fun and providing attention they need to thrive in the classroom, my children were eager to attend school. They welcome parent participation and encourage community involvement. It's just an overall great learning environment for kids.
There is nothing I would say that makes Baldwin any different than any other elementary school. I loved my sons first grade teacher, wasn't impressed by second grade and hope for a better outcome with his third grade teacher. FOOD FOR THOUGHT: I have been looking for bio's on these teachers and can't find that, it would help us parents understand who is working with our children a little more.
I've had nothing but good experiences with the school and it's staff. My daughter's teacher seems really focused on her disability. It helps us out knowing that we will have help along the way because of teachers like that.
Baldwin Elementary School is a school that really cares about the 'whole child.' They make learning fun for their students, and welcome parent participation. It's just an overall great place for kids.
The teachers and staff are great! They all genuinely care about my child.
Mrs. Hill is working very hard to put Baldwin back on the map. She continues to set high standards for all students. I hope Baldwin becomes the school it once was under Mrs. Hill's leadership!
My children have attended Baldwin for 4 years. It has been the best experience. The assistant principal is awesome. She is always willing to stop what she is doing and listen to your concerns. Her love for the students shows on her face everyday. She has high expectations for all students and truly believes they can obtain those expectations. The teachers are super. Mrs. Stamp is a wondrful teacher who takes pride in her job and will stop at nothing to make sure all of her students are sucessful. Baldwin truly is a very special school.
My son has been going there for 4 years and my second son just started kindergarten. My son has been challenged with the workload given in each grade. We love the dances and activities that the PTO puts on for the kids. My kids love the school, the only area I would like to see changed is some type of support for military kids with deployed parents, with such a high number of military students I think it would be beneficial. I find the staff to be very helpful , the other day my son who rides the bus called because he had forgotten his homework. It was pouring down rain. I went to the school and the gym teacher was directing traffic, she offered to take it to my son so that my two year old and I would not have to get out of the car. THANKS!
This was my son's first year at Baldwin and his Teahcer was Mrs. Baldwin. Both her and her assistant were incredible. They show genuine care for the students and their families as well as keep you well informed even in the most minor of incidents. The amount of homework is appropriate for their age. My son can be challenging and she handled him great and was extremely patient with him. I had heard alot of negative things about public schools in the area and I'm thankful that I've had such a postive experience with Baldwin! I can only hope that our experiences maintain the same satisfaction with the years to come as my second son will be entering school soon too! We're keeping our fingers crossed for another year with Mrs. Baldwin for my second son!
I have found the staff, teachers, and the community great so far. My son is in kindergarten and he enjoys going to school each day. He comes from a year round school so therefore he adjusted very well. I was a teacher back in my old state and I can say that year round schools are exceptional when it comes down to learning new things. Love this school!
