CCA Baldi Middle School is almost the worst school ever. The teachers give you attitude, the kids their don't have no idea how much they act disgusting towards each other and the kids aren't on the math and reading level they should be on.Don't put your kid into this school unless you want them to drop a grade average from A-B to a C -D and I won't be surprised if your child got an A to a F. The teachers don't understand how to grade properly, but grade how your child acts in that class. I would not let my child ever go there again and she's a straight A student , but ended up with Bs and Cs in classes. Right when I questioned the teachers they changed her grade right away. I'm disappointed in the the whole school policy and rules since it was highly recommended by the teachers and staff of Fox Chases Elementary. Shame!
My son came from Fox Chase and has been going to Baldi since 6 grade. Next year is his last year at the school. I have to say I love this school and my son loves it too. How many people can say their son hates when the weekends come, because he rather be in school. He want from going to Baldi for summer school, to become an honor roll student and at the top of his class.
I was told by the principal that this was like a suburban school in the city. He obviously does not know what the suburban schools are like. There is no accountability for students. They are allowed to turn in assignments late and still get full credit as long as it is in before the end of the semester. I don't know any suburban school that does that. In most cases, one day late gives you an automatic drop to 50%. The second day gives you a 0% but you still have to turn it in or you get an incomplete for the semester and will not be able to graduate the grade until the assignment is complete. The standard of education is subpar to the suburbs as well. The students are not held to using correct grammar when writing or speaking. The assignments are ridiculously easy for middle school children at the average or above average level resulting in no academic challenge. The school itself is very worn looking and there are bars on the windows making it look like a prison. The parking lot always has trash in it as do the playing fields. Many of the walls have graffiti on them as well. Inside the halls are cramped and dirty looking.
I just tranferred my daughter from parochial school this year. Had I only known. This school is amazing. Adminisration and teachers top notch. Award winning robotics club. I feel guilty that I didn't make this move sooner
Baldi is awesome!All the teachers are nice,there are 100 clubs + 16 sports,and the homework is managable.I highly recommend it!
C. C. A. has a diverse population of students from all over the world. The students love to learn and I love to teach them.... Our students are extraordinary.... Namely, they embrace each other's cultures and are passionate in learning about global issues.
I love teaching at Baldi Middle School. It has the most diverse population and the sweetest young people in the entire city of Philadelphia.
My daughter just started 6th grade at Baldi and I am soooo impressed already! For the first time since she started kindergarten she is in a school where she is challenged. And she loves it! What a breath of fresh air to listen to her rave about her teachers and classmates. We have such stimulating conversations about what is happening in school now! Baldi is the best!
this is my first 6th grade year at baldi and i love it!!!! the staff and students are wonderful and so welcoming its not like any other public school. i love it so much !!!GO BALDI BULLDOGS!!!
This is an amazing middle school. I am a graduate of the class of 2006 and I can honestly say those were the best 3 years of my life thus far. I wish I had appreciated it more when I was a student there. I didn't realize how much I enjoyed it until I reached high school. I highly recommend this school!
this is truly a very good school it has air condision in everyroom it has lots of activities and the teachers are great im a 6th grader and im loving it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
C.C.A Baldi Middle School is an amazing, amazing environment. I am graduating in a few months, and am incredibly sad to do so.The years fly by. In 8th grade, depending on your test scores from the year before, you may be put into one of the four IB classes. The teachers of 801-804 are very supportive, and know what they're doing. If you are looking for a friendly middle school that will benefit your child in many ways, choose Baldi.
I am a 7th grade student at baldi and i love it so much there is so many extra curricular activites and the teachers and amazing
I love baldi. This is the best school ever. This is my second year at baldi and i am in 7th grade, my teachers are mrs.mazzuca, mrs.sechrist,mrs. williams, and mrs.cohen. School is so much fun. I mean there are 16 sports to choose from and everything. I highly reccomend this school to anyone who is looking for a public middle school in philadelphia.
I love this school its so much fun, it gives you many opportunities such as there are over 15 sports to play, music clbs and many more. In 8th grade its really fun. I am in 8th grade now and I can't wait to see what happens the rest of the year!
For the last two years I attended Baldi Middle, and it was the best thing that has ever happened to me. I started out in 7th grade and that just happened to be one of the best years of my life. I was so looking forward to the 8th grade that in the last few days of summer I slept most of the time because I wanted the time to move faster. 8th grade was really amazing. However, I had one of the worst teachers ever in a subject thats very important. However, the rest of my teachers were very supportive of me and very comforting. As the year was coming towards an end my friends and I were thinking about failing our classes so we could be held back. Baldi; my true home
Last year in 7th grade was my first year so I didn't know what to expect but as the year went on I made a lot of friends and my seventh grade teachers where the best. At first I had a very hard time with math but I took a after school tuerting called power hour. Also my teacher came to school early to help me. Baldi has a lot of good sports and we sometimes always make it to the championships. Baldi has a lot of things you can do after school like art clubs, robotics, sport practices and a lot more. I personaly think all the teachers are great but if you get on their bad side thats when they can scream at you.Baldi is the best school ever!
I am a student at Baldi and going to 8th grade this coming year. The main reason I gave this school a 3 star rating is because: we are not going to have any more computer classes at all; the school starts earlier this year; the periods are going to be much longer, I believe about 1 hour+. I can only hope that its not much worse than I think it will be. The good things are that there are going to be new teachers and that there are already good teachers there. Another good thing is that they just finished paving the parking lot, because it was not smooth nor did it look good at all. Also at the end of last year we got air-conditioning which is a big plus. If you are a nice person and behave you will have no problems with teachers there. (Source-myself)
