Baker Demonstration School
Baker Demonstration School Photo - Think more deeply. Baker classrooms are alive with inquiry, investigation and ideas, and these ideas, often imagined into being by students like your sons and daughters, enrich and sometimes even spontaneously direct the focus of a class in unexpected ways, ultimately empowering students to think more deeply about their world.
