Another special thank you to our 8th grade ELA teacher, Mrs. Heather Scheutzow for bringing awareness of the Holocaust to our students.

E.K. Baker Elementary is a level 5 based on academic growth for the 2020-2021 school year. A level 5 is the highest academic growth score that a school can receive. We are extremely proud of our faculty, staff, and students! This is a great accomplishment for any school, but it is AWESOME for E.K. Baker. The last time we received academic growth data we were a level 1. Our school has worked very hard to reach a level 5 status. Congratulations!
