My son just started Kindergarten at Clara Byrd Baker. We couldn't ask for a better teacher. She makes an exceptional effort to keep us informed, daily, about our son's progress. Our son also comes home every day excited about what he did in school. Glad to know our shy little guy is so engaged!

We have had some excellent teachers at this school and some REALLY mediocre ones as well. The administration is the downfall of this school. The principal interacts with the students very little and shows little or no enthusiasm. I have been very disappointed in how he has 'resolved' problems that ...  Read more

unfortunately our school has the lowest rating. I blame this on the principle and vice principle who do not support the teachers. They are not fair in allowing all children participation in clubs.

For those parents that have had deal with serious problems, he would rather brush the problem under the rug than problem solve. There is no support with discipline problems and the academic ...  Read more

The Principal at Clara Byrd Baker is a very nice person, but has no handle on the many dicipline problems at the school: fights, uncontrolled behavior in the classrooms. In many cases teachers do not even send the kids to the principal's office because they know nothing will be done. While my children ...  Read more

CBB is an excellent school and I would highly recommend it to everyone.

My children have both blossomed beautifully under the expert and caring guidance of the teachers ...  Read more

Great school. Great teachers and parents. New school should lower students and help with crowding.

My son has attended this school for his 6th year now. The administration is excpetional(a very dedicated and 'hands on' approach) Though a big school, it has not affected the personal-ness of the school , nor my sons academic progress. I would recommend this school to anyone who has children. The PTA ...  Read more
