Helping all students succeed
The diversity of Baker’s student body and the breadth of educational programs and instructional needs the school must support make this middle school unique among many of its peer schools. Situated in the heart of a marginalized urban neighborhood, children from military families comprise approximately 25% of the student body, contributing to higher than average turnover each year. More than 15% of Baker’s students require special education support and 10% of students receive instruction in transitional bilingual programs to strengthen English language skills. Additionally, Baker provides the satellite Deaf and Hard of Hearing program for Pierce County.
