This school is highly impacted by the low social / economic demographics of the school district. The behavior issues my child witnessed last year were unbelievable. Even higher performing students were disrupting classes and getting into trouble. Most parents don't seem to invest in academics or parenting of behavior. It was a terrible experience.
BP is an unique school. The brand new facility is set up in 3 wings, dividing the school into 3 mini schools. Each wing has 6,7, and 8th graders in blended classrooms. The students stay in their assigned wing for all 3 years and have the same teachers all three years. This allows the teachers to get to know the students and offer a program that caters to the needs of the student whether the student has difficulties or advanced skills. I highly recommend this system as a parent of children at both ends of the spectrum.
Baker Prairie Middle School is a very good school our children love it and the teachers are wonderful... They care and work hard to help with what ever our kids need. This school is just awesome! You and your children will love it.
