First of all I don't understand why the rating of this diversified school is so low. Mount baker is a great school, As all of us know that "don't judge a book by its cover" it goes with this school as well because the school is located in ok area does not mean that the school is not good. My daughter went school in North Taps middle school and then we came back to Mount Baker but she thinks that there is only one difference in both the schools and the difference is that MBMS is more diversified than NTMS and the location of NTMS is better than MTBMS. She love all the teachers so much. She thinks that teachers are amazing and most of all the principal of this school is awesome. He is very helpful in every aspect. The teachers are very well experienced. I would recommend this school to all the students who want to be successful in life and to all the parents who want to see their kids grow as a diversified and learned individuals.
Asst Principal Steve Lewis and Dean of Students, Chris Leverenz are incredibly awesome educators! I always felt comfortable talking with them regarding any issues I may have had and they were both very responsive.
As a student, I am a bit discouraged to see the attendance and office staff. When I was a new student last year, on Bulldog Day (the day when students receive their schedules and get their pictures taken), the halls were very crowded, to the point one person would have at most 1 foot radius of space between them and the next person. The office staff was very disorganized. My parents and I had to wait at least 15 minutes before we could get my schedule changed. The office ladies there are also very short-tempered. Attendance was not one of my favorable criteria. On occasions, I would be tardy twice a week. If a student is tardy more than twice per quarter, s/he would receive a lunch detention. A "freebie" is given in the beginning of every quarter. However, the school suspended this rule this year. I suspect this rule may come again some time in the future.
