The best school in the world i my opinoin. They have great lunches and all their staff is nice to the kids that go there. I am so so happy to be going there. All the teachers are so nice and the students get treated with respect and the teachers pay attention to the students and they certaintley do not disbehave because all the rules are enforced. And one thing that i like about E.K. Baker is that whoever walks into that building is treated with respect. All the teachers are nice and the principal is wonderful.
