Overall Experience   2015-04-01
I loved my school. I would do it over and over if i could. Honestly !


Overall Experience   2015-03-01
my high school taught time a lot of things, the teacher mad me think of things i would never on my own, exposed me to new ways of thinking and over all taught me that in this world every one is different but its how we come together that matters


Overall Experience   2013-10-01
There are some teachers I would want to have.


Overall Experience   2013-11-01
Baldwin has a excellent sports team ( football basketball track). Very good music department has won numerous recognition for its talented students.


Student Culture & Diversity   2016-09-01
Everyone is very accepting of all races, ethnicities, and sexual orientations. I have never once, as a student of black and hispanic descent, felt discriminated against or afraid for any reason at this school. I have many friends that identify as bisexual, gay, and transgender, and I have never once heard them being made fun of or ostracized. Everyone is completely comfortable with their identity at school, even if they aren't comfortable with it at home. That's one of the reasons why I think many kids at Baldwin enjoy going to school. They can spend time with people of shared interests and backgrounds and they can identify themselves in whatever way they choose.


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-08-01
I can honestly say my school is one if not the most Diverse school on Long Island, Every race and ethnicity is represented amongst the staff as well as the student body. I think the open mindedness of my school community in terms of race and ethnicity help with the non judgmental feelings about sexuality and orientation.


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-07-01
Baldwin Senior high school is a very diverse school having students that speak several different languages such as English, Spanish, creole and french.


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-06-01
As stated in the previous question my school is extremely diverse, and extremely accepting. This may occur at other schools, but I think that it is amazing that the special education kids sit with us at our tables at lunch. Nobody excludes them, and many are even very popular. There are two of them that are autistic and love to perform whether it be singing or dancing, and nobody bothers them. In fact, most cheer them on. Every school ofcourse has their mean girl clique but my school is very accepting overall.


Student Culture & Diversity   2015-04-01
I go to a school where back in the 60s it's all white. Now the majority is Black and Hispanic. We a very open and diverse school and community , there was rarely a day where I was insulted or judged by the color of my skin.


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-08-01
This school is very diverse there is a place for everyone among the students and if you can't find students to hang out with - there are favorable teachers and administration


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-10-01
Many different cliques get along well.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-04-01
I'm grateful for being able to attend Baldwin Senior High school due to it's diversity. A lot of people don't get the perks of being able to interact with multiple races everyday until they reach college. In my school there are multiple groups or cliques but mostly everyone gets along. I can't recall a time when i've been peer pressured by any of my schoolmates, there's always a group thats accepting of someone else. There's no conflicts between the various races in the school and he or she's sexual orientation.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-03-01
The diversity is so strong in Baldwin, that there is no ethnic group you can't find. Everyone will accept you, and the level of academics among student varies greatly, but there's a group for everyone.


Teachers   2016-01-01
The teachers at Baldwin Senior High School are very helpful, knowledgeable, they genuinely care about the students and have effective teacher styles.


Teachers   2015-04-01
I myself had the greatest teachers.


Teachers   2014-02-01
All of the teachers ive ever had between 9th and 12th grade have been absolutly amazing! They will do anything for you as long as you treat them with respect.


Teachers   2013-06-01
Teachers are very involved, knowledgeable, passionate, and care about their students. There is a possibility for a one-on-one relationship that borderlines friendship.


Academics   2014-08-01
A lot of AP classes offered with great teachers, though some teachers have an attitude for no reason and assign a lot of work. Things like that put a lot of stress on a student and shouldn't be acceptable. Most teachers are pretty laid back and are heavily involved in their students' studies and are good at keeping the classes interesting.


Academics   2014-07-01
This school is a highly competitive school , receiving an education here will prepare you for real world experience and teach you that you must strive for the best.


Academics   2013-10-01
There is a wide variety of courses offered.


Academics   2013-10-01
academics is excellent just very hard to get A's


Academics   2014-02-01
I think our accademics in our school are very good. We seem to have the most amount of students attending IVY League schools in our area.


Academics   2013-07-01
The teachers at Baldwin High school are amazing. There was so many opportunity for one to do well in all classes.All teachers really go above and beyond and have flexible extra help hours. Our school also offer an excellent honors/ AP program. Overall there is a great array of classes one can take beside just the main courses. Being in Advance placement classes the workload is pretty intense especially if its more than one but nothing impossible.


Academics   2013-05-01
AP and honors courses have open enrollment, which leads students to be curious and pursue subjects that students in other schools feel restricted from.


Educational Outcomes   2015-04-01
Baldwin is a great school, and this school has shown me that there is no limit to what I can pursue and achieve in my life.


Educational Outcomes   2015-03-01
I felt prepared for the outside world, but by my teachers; depending on your guidance counselor, the help you receive from them will either be great or severely lacking.


Educational Outcomes   2015-01-01
Many students attend college after graduation from this school


Academics   2013-06-01
School offer alot of activities, classes that teach about daily life, Bocess is another importance program to help student leraning the real skill of their work in the future. The AP/honors class were very variable.Extra help were available comprehensive.


Academics   2014-01-01
First, the question on this page regarding the difficulty to achieve high grades is impossible to answer accurately. It depends almost entirely on the courses a student takes. In AP classes, students have to work incredibly hard to achieve As, and in regents classes it is easier, but not entirely effortless, to maintain As. There are a very broad selection of electives, including AP electives like Psychology and regents electives like Sociology. The workload varies depending on teacher and nature of the class. Some classes simply require daily, hour-long assignments in order to learn the curriculum before finals, and some require very little work outside of the classroom.


Academics   2013-05-01
The academics offered would include AP/honors, and regents based classes. These classes challenge you so you can excel in college and the "real world." The workload depending on the type of advanced class one takes is heavy but the teachers are always eager to help.


Academics   2013-04-01
Guidance Counselors are always available to push you further. There are many opportunities to advance and though the academics are somewhat challenging, they work.


Academics   2013-04-01
Most teachers teach really well at Baldwin Senior High School. The workload can be challenging at times, but manageable.


Educational Outcomes   2014-07-01
Prepares you for real world experiences


Educational Outcomes   2014-06-01
Graduates from Baldwin go to Ivy League schools and also to community colleges. You get what you put in.


Educational Outcomes   2013-08-01
The school gave students a lot of opportunities to prepare them for the real world and also what they wanted to do in life. The school was able to send students to BOCES, where they were able to study any field in their interest. Also the school help prepare the students for college, by giving the students some college work and having the students do a lot of work on their own. Every teacher and faculty member helped at some point to push students to go to college, whether if it was a community college or a regular university. They all just wanted to see their students succeed and they did.


Academics   2013-09-01
The academics are intense at this school. Coming from the inner city I was overwhelmed at first, but overtime I caught on.


Academics   2013-08-01
The academics offered general classes, AP/honors classes and some college credit classes, where a student can take classes that would count to their college transcript, which very awesome. I believe theses are the classes that really push students and give them a challenge and to help them understand what's to come when they head off to college. These classes are intense, but the teachers are willing to help educate and make the work understandable for students.


Academics   2013-08-01
This High School consist a decent amount of courses


Academics   2014-04-01
The academics offered by Baldwin Senior High School are one of the best. The teachers are very attentive when it comes to listening to students and it's always easy to follow their lesson plan.


Academics   2014-03-01
Mrs. Beirne is the best guidance counselor. She helped me through everything. Everyone should take a business class like senior internship it helps when you have to get a job because these classes require you to make a college resume a work resume cover letters thank you letters and etc...


Academics   2014-02-01
We have very competent teachers; they are willing to work with students so that they (the students) do well.


Academics   2014-06-01
The teachers are very nice and are willing to help if your willing to learn


Academics   2014-08-01
It is honestly a blessing if you are in and Honors or AP class, because you are there with other students who are focused. The teachers of these class can also teach with minimal to no distractions.


Academics   2014-07-01
The academics are a strong point of the school, teachers are available to aid students when the students choose to ask for help. In addition, exams were often discussed and explained in detail upon request. Some of the teachers, like a certain AP US History teacher (Mr. B) deserve awards for their level of dedication.


Teachers   2013-03-01
All of my teachers use different methods when they teach. Some are more harder than others, but I can cope with it and I will catch on. Some teachers can be mean in class, but they're very "cool" to talk to as a mentor for example. I assume the teachers that are like that only be strict because they want their students to get good grades and I completely agree with them.


Academics   2016-09-01
There are a wide variety of courses offered at this school, and I have only taken a fraction of them. There are so many courses that I dropped my lunch period for two years just so I could take more classes. I event took one class independent study and met with a teacher outside of normal school hours to study advanced Italian (it was GREAT!). The scheduling process is not perfect, but I have always been satisfied with the outcome. No teacher or counselor has ever forced me to take a class, and I have been fortunate enough in my high school experience to have been able to take almost every single course I wanted to (minus one). The teachers are very supportive of academic choices, and are the main reason why students decide to take specific classes in the future.


Academics   2016-03-01
My daughter has received a quality education here


Academics   2014-08-01
Do your work and then some respectively per teacher is easy. The extra effort is the real competition because anyone can "get by". Scheduling process is a good well working process .


Teachers   2013-05-01
I love the teacher here. They care about the students. Aside from some teachers who should have never became teachers, majority of the teachers are always available to help you when you need them and guide you in the right path.


Teachers   2013-05-01
The teachers are pretty cool overall. Some of them can be a little strict but overall they are pretty good teachers.


Teachers   2014-02-01
most of the teachers Ive had have been very helpful


Teachers   2014-01-01
Generally speaking, AP teachers are all-around better teachers than regents teachers, but that goes for every school and has more to do with the student population than the teachers themselves. However, because most teachers teach both AP and regents, most teachers are very knowledgeable and care a lot about the students. Some teachers have problems communicating; not all foreign language teachers speak fluent English, for example.


Teachers   2014-03-01
The teachers try their best to get students to understand. The best department are the art teachers. They are cool and friendly. Art classes are like periods of serenity during school.


Teachers   2014-03-01
Most of these teachers really connect with the students and form bonds and are very easy to talk to.


Teachers   2014-02-01
The teachers I have had truly care about their students.


Teachers   2014-08-01
Most of the teachers teach very great lessons and rarely venture off into topics that don't have anything to do with the current lesson being taught. There are a large amount of teachers that know how to engage the students in the activity, though some teachers need more help doing so.


Teachers   2014-08-01
The overall quality of the teachers in this school are very good. My favorite teacher was my APUSH/Sociology teacher because he made those two subjects come alive and opened my eyes to a new love of social sciences.


Teachers   2014-07-01
The teachers in Baldwin enjoy their job


Teachers   2015-02-01
The teachers at my High School work extremely hard to teach us and make sure that we remember the teachings.


Teachers   2014-04-01
Teachers really put the effort in to try to make you a better student


Teachers   2015-04-01
The teachers are informative and try to help students the best they can.


Teachers   2015-03-01
Many of the teachers genuinely care about the kids learning and getting the most out of the class. They will teach more than they have to and spend extra time to get us to learn what is needed.


Teachers   2015-03-01
Most of my teachers in high school seemed knowledgeable about the material and willing to assist students who were struggling during or after class. However, I found a lot of the lessons uninteresting, so it was often difficult to pay attention in class.


Teachers   2015-03-01
Great teachers, except for a few. However, New York's Common Core curriculum and means of evaluating teachers is inane and puts strain on teaching students well, and has to change.


Teachers   2015-03-01
I have meet many teachers in my time at the high school who i have really bonded with and help me through a lot .


Teachers   2015-02-01
Every teacher at Baldwin High School has a different style of teaching. Some are more hands on while others make you figure it out on your own first. If you need help or feel you are struggling with anything every teacher is open and willing to help out.


Teachers   2016-01-01
The teachers are very nice and funny. They definitely have extra help so they can help students outside the classroom. They have 2 extra helps each week. Some teachers stay after school everyday anyway sometimes so they can talk to students if students have time.


Teachers   2015-12-01
Most teachers here are average; they'll teach you the material, give you a couple worksheets, and then you'll take a test. Then there are those few teachers who go above and beyond in teaching you; not only the material but about life.


Teachers   2016-09-01
Many, if not all of the teachers that I have come across are incredibly knowledgable and engaging. They communicate clearly and convey the lessons in an effective manner. While teaching styles vary, I have yet to come across a teacher that I could not learn anything from. All of my teachers have shown interest in my success as a student, my overall being, and my extracurricular interests. I have even had lunch with some of my teachers. They are very consistent with their grading and I can't remember a time when I got a thoroughly shocking grade. Whenever I am having trouble with the material they will speak to me after class and go over it or before or after school.


Teachers   2016-03-01
Teachers are great. The teachers are knowledgeable and interested in the students. Grading pretty consistent


Teachers   2016-03-01
The teachers in Baldwin Senior High School are an amazing group of adults that know how to handle mostly any situation that gets thrown at them. Most of them always have a back up plan to what they're going to do with the class if there's any technological issues or any other problems. Most of the teachers will be there for you if you need someone to talk to about anything rather them brushing you off and/or sending you to guidance counselor, social worker, or dean.


Overall Experience   2013-11-01
Although our school budget did not pass, the community came together to raise money for lost programs including music, arts, sports, and extracurricular activities. It has brought the school closer together and the seniors have definitely bonded.


Teachers   2016-06-01
Most teachers are highly attentive and are helping students to their best.


Teachers   2016-06-01
The teachers at Baldwin Senior High School are one of the best teachers I've ever had growing up. Thanks to them I was able to pass all of my regents exams on my first try and I wouldn't be the skilled person I am today if it weren't for them.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-07-01
Baldwin High School is a very diverse school. The teachers care for the students as do the rest of the staff and their main goals consist of the well being and success of the students. Peer pressure is not a very big issue in this school. Students are easily involved in activities such as sports night, sports in general, and clubs. Racial, cultural, and sexual orientation issues are not a factor. Acceptance is widely practiced in this school, I love Baldwin Senior High School and I am very sad that this is my last year here.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-05-01
Some teachers make racist/sexist assumptions, but the students for the most part are very open-minded. The biggest issue among students is academic elitism.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-10-01
The diversity you get here is like no other school I've been to. I move a lot but at baldwin I feel like the kids are more excepting of others. I believe through out the years the grades get closer with each other and most of the students get along with each other


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-08-01
Many sports and clubs to participate in!


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-06-01
Baldwin is very diverse and I am happy to say that we have very little race issues in school.


Student Culture & Diversity   2014-05-01
Our schools diversity teaches you what people are like in the world and how to deal with people from everywhere.


Overall Experience   2013-04-01
Its been great however challenging at times. Great experiences, caring teachers and good friends!


Overall Experience   2013-06-01
I believe that my school is amazing. The great teachers with different personalities, who are always there for you because they want to, not because they are getting paid to. The easy access to computer labs in order to further expand on knowledge gained in class during free periods. Even the library that is FULL with tons of books, textbooks, and even review books to use after school when it is open. But most importantly, the great people I have met in this school are the reason for who I am today. Thank You Baldwin.


Overall Experience   2013-05-01
The school is overall a good school. The teachers are friendly and truly want you to succeed. They do everything to make sure that we are in a safe learning environment and that we are prepared for the future. They give us just enough freedom so that when we ge tot college it wont be that overwhelming.


Overall Experience   2013-08-01
This school have lots of diversity of student, sports, clubs and all other classes and programs. There are many choices for student to choose to learn what they want to learn and to experienced with. The school also have boces programs which provided student to learn a real experiences of jobs they want to be in the future. The school also have mentor program to helps students get into a better learning and their other problems that they want to struggle. Yes I would choose to go here again.


Overall Experience   2013-08-01
Even though I could not wait until I graduated high school, I love my school. I had such an amazing experience and made good memories and friends. I still go back to say hi and talk to my guidance counselor and my teachers, just to thank them for pushing me in the right direction and not letting me fall behind. Also I thank the school in general for all the programs that they offered to us to better ourselves and prepare us for the real world and for our college careers. Of course, I would love to go back and do all over again and I wouldn't change a thing!


Overall Experience   2013-08-01
I have been in the Baldwin School disctrict most of my life. I have grown up with most of the students in the high school and I am good friends with almost all of them. I am very involved with activites to make the school better. Both of my parents are Alumni of the school and I enjoy being able to share similar experiences with them. I moved away in the middle of Junior year and could not wait to get back to Baldwin High. Teachers, faculty and students were all glad to see me back.


Overall Experience   2015-07-01
Personally I think it's a good school. Of course no school is perfect & although the students can be very troublesome at times and we often have police enforcement come around it is common in many other schools. What matters most to me is the education I receive, the teachers, the curriculum & the opportunities I'm given to grow not only as a student but as an individual. The defects may be the worst things about the school but when you change your perspective they could even be what is the best because it challenges you in a way you never may have been challenged before. The roaches of course are not included in this challenge, no one likes those.


Overall Experience   2014-03-01
I was originally supposed to go to school in queens but I feel as though my parents made the right choice as to sending me to baldwin.


Overall Experience   2014-02-01
My school's diverse student population is unparalleled by others.


Overall Experience   2014-01-01
I'm a violinist, and I am lucky to have been able to grow my talent at Baldwin. It's been rated among the top high schools in New York for music, and it certainly has lived up to that. The musicals especially are something I feel everyone should be a part of at some point. The Pit Orchestra forms a team, the actors form a team, and the stage crew form a team. By the time the musical is performed, those teams have come together as a family. The bond between musicians is strong as a result, and that common interest makes it easy to make friends and share experiences. It improves the overall experience so that any other minor shortcoming in the school can be safely overlooked.


Overall Experience   2016-05-01
This school is very diverse and I believe that is very important in todays world. I don't remember a day that my children or others at this school were not welcoming to all student regardless of their race or religion.


Overall Experience   2015-08-01
Honestly this school is probably one of the most diverse high schools i have been too. You get to meet a wide range of different people from different ethnicity and make all sorts of friends. Aside from that, the teachers i had all 4 years were great. I was able to learn a lot and some of them give you advice on things that you will come to deal with later on in life.


Overall Experience   2015-08-01
Most teachers go above and beyond for students.


Overall Experience   2015-02-01
I have made plenty of mistakes attending BHS, but I am glad that I made the mistakes so that I know how to handle them in the future. I can proudly say that I like all my teachers, some students can't say that. This school gave me my best friends and grew me closer to people who I would never talk to. I would definitely do it over again.


Overall Experience   2014-08-01
All aside, it's not too shabby of an establishment. Much diversity and variety. Teachers once you get to know them are my favorite - along with the sugar cookies.


Overall Experience   2014-08-01
The social scene of the school heavily depends on cliques. Most cliques have students who would reject someone if they didn't like them. However, once you settle down with a group of your own that you're comfortable with, you start to settle in way faster. .


Overall Experience   2014-08-01
I like the diversity amongst the student body because literally everyone is represented. The longevity and the community adoration of my schools annual Sportsnite and Intramural Night is something that I really feel helped me build friendships and school spirit.


Overall Experience   2014-07-01
One of the best schools I've been to


Overall Experience   2014-06-01
My school is extremely diverse which is a very rare experience for many people my age. Most neighborhoods are majority white or black by a landslide, when to be honest, I do not know which race is the majority in my school. It's not just black and white, there are Spanish, and Asian students in the mix as well. My school also has an AMAZING sports program. Within my four years of attendance I have seen numerous teams win conference, county, long island, and even state championships. If I had to attend high school all over again I would definitely attend the same school.


Educational Outcomes   2013-06-01
The credit I received from my plethora of AP courses helped make my transition easier, I could take more advanced classes, and was able to place out of a few courses.


Educational Outcomes   2013-05-01
This high school definitely prepared me for college. Either it being time management or the rigorous courses provided for me, this school helped me adjust into the college.


Overall Experience   2016-09-01
Not the worst school and not the best school. Pretty safe and fun.


Overall Experience   2016-09-01
I think the main reason that I really enjoy school is because the teachers are so invested in me and truly care about my future. I truly value learning and I think that this school has provided me with everything I need academically to be successful in the future. The parents that are a part of the PTA or the Board of Education are definitely invested in every child in the school system. However, I do not think this is truly representative of the entire parental community. I know there are definitely parents out there that are in to things solely for the sake of their own child, an even some parents that aren't really too invested in their children. Fortunately, overall the community as a whole tends to be very supportive of the high school and I think that is one of the reasons Baldwin graduates are so successful.


Overall Experience   2016-03-01
Baldwin High School is a very diverse school environment. The academics here are very competitive, Particularly the Honors tract. The Art and Music program nationally recognized. The Sports in the school very competitive on the local and state levels. Great School.


Overall Experience   2016-03-01
My overall experience has been amazing in this school. This school is unique in so many ways but my favorite activity in this school is sportsnite. There are barely any schools that have something similar to sportsnite. Sportsnite is a competition where they split girls into two teams that represent our school colors (blue and gold) to compete in different areas such as dance, stunts, banquet and entrance. This is a three month process and it all comes together for the first week in March called Sportsweek when all the competitions start. If I could do it all again I would make that decision in a heartbeat because it has made such an impact on the memories of high school that I will always carry with me.


Overall Experience   2016-01-01
I've been attending Baldwin High School for 4 years now and I would like to say that I'll miss this school dearly, from the teachers, to the sports/activities, our annual volleyball tournament, and sporsnite.


Overall Experience   2016-01-01
This school is very diverse and most kids get along of course there are some kids and groups dont get along bbut for the most part they are kind


Overall Experience   2015-12-01
i love my high school. great teachers and people always looked out for you,


Overall Experience   2015-12-01
What makes this school unique is that there is no set clique; each person can hop between friend groups fairly easily.


Overall Experience   2015-12-01
Transferring from a private Catholic school, public school is hard especially when half of the population are African Americans. Being a junior not knowing anyone in a school filled with over a 1000 students is hard. Making friends, finding class or just fitting in is hard, Everyone has their own groups and wont accept anyone in i.


Overall Experience   2015-10-01
The school runs smoothly and it has some hiccups. And it's very diverse.


Overall Experience   2016-08-01
My overall experience at my school has been good so far. I get along well with students and teachers. The environment is safe and the courses offered are great.


Overall Experience   2016-08-01
This school is not the best but it is better than some surrounding schools.


Overall Experience   2016-06-01
I enjoy the organizations they have for students but the school can do more to get their student body interested


Overall Experience   2016-06-01
In all honesty the school is nothing like it was when I was a freshman. There would always be bomb threats and a lot of fights. I remember my first homecoming game when i was a freshman; people from other towns came and a huge brawl occurred. Someone was stabbed and even shot. Thankfully things aren't how they used to be, the school has increased security and the school is probably one of the safest schools in Nassau county.


Overall Experience   2014-06-01
It all depends on what you looking to get out of this school.


Overall Experience   2014-06-01
Had a very good experience. Had alot of friends, played basketball, football and lacrosse. Being part of a team makes you a family.


Overall Experience   2014-04-01
Our school have some programs that make it unique like our musical and Sportsnite. If you find something you like and others who share the same interest you are bound to have a great experience!


Overall Experience   2015-08-01
Overall I can say that I am proud to have graduated in the class of 2014 as a Baldwin Bruin. I was fortunate enough to have pretty good teachers in all my years of attending Baldwin High School. I feel like I was prepared well for college. Whats unique about Baldwin High is that we had the privilege of leaving the school for lunch so that we didn't have to eat school lunch all the time. If I could go back in time and start over, i would go back to my freshman year in Baldwin.


Overall Experience   2016-04-01
What makes Baldwin Senior High School so unique is its diversity within the student body and staff, and it teaches you to accept others no matter what race, religion, sexuality, or gender. A program I truly enjoyed within the school was Sportsnite, which is a tradition that has strived in Baldwin for now 83 years. It has taught me more responsibility, how to take on a leadership role, and the true meaning of school spirit.


Overall Experience   2015-04-01
This school is OKAY. The students here are very cliquey and have this "idea" of what makes a person attractive (brown skin, curly hair, etc.) Students can be judgemental but there are some who are good people. I would not come here again because the students can be superficial.


Overall Experience   2015-03-01
As an AP student, I had a lot of really great people in my classes and a lot of teachers who really cared about whether we learned or not which has been really great. I've also made some really great friends. Being able to go out for lunch is a really nice privilege to have. We are also a very diverse school, so I've had a lot of opportunities to meet people from all different cultures and backgrounds. However, there are many kids in my school who get in trouble for things like fights and bomb threats, which can get frustrating.


Overall Experience   2015-03-01
I didn't play any sports or get involved in activities, so I did not know a lot of people. I also didn't feel comfortable in any cliques which was a problem because almost every student belonged to one. There were a lot of students who got into trouble, and a lot of students who were rude or prejudiced. Overall, I probably wouldn't go to this school if I had the choice, but the curriculum wasn't the worst.


Overall Experience   2013-12-01
The school i attend is okay because there's not enough supervision, kids who lack disciplinary are sent to another building all together, some teachers let kids do what they want so they do what they want but other than that, the school academically is fine.


Overall Experience   2014-03-01
My favorite experience would be my first 2 years of high school . I had made some interestingly poor decisions and as i've grown over the years, i realize my dumb mistakes and move on and i learn from it and think of ways to improve myself academically, physically, mentally, and emotionally


Overall Experience   2015-06-01
It was okay. It wasn't a bad experience, but I wouldn't say it was a great one. In general it was just okay; there were moments throughout my high school career that I will remember and that made the experience enjoyable. I don't know, it was alright. Maybe I'm just not the type of person who's into high school and everything that encompasses such a place and time in life. The cliche and the unexpected were all somewhat interesting, but nothing to interest me grandly. Whatever. It was okay.


Overall Experience   2015-06-01
The school is very diverse. Academics are great if you are in honors classes or APs


Overall Experience   2015-02-01
The past few years I've spent here were hard but led me to better things.


Overall Experience   2013-06-01
I had a great time.


Overall Experience   2013-10-01
im not the most thrill with the school however there curriculum is excellent.


Overall Experience   2013-10-01
I went to this school for my junior and senior year currently but I would say over all i did make a few life long friends. It's not hard to find friend because you'll someone like you self in that school


Overall Experience   2013-10-01
I attend a pretty decent school. I made so many new friends by joining sportsnite and intramural night. Unfortunately those programs were taken away due to budget cuts. One thing I don't like about my school is how sanitary it is. There are too many roaches roaming the hallway. I also feel as if the students don't have much of a say when it comes to student activites.


Overall Experience   2013-04-01
I've appreciated my 4 years attending this school. Meeting so many people and interacting with multiple races has to be one of the greatest experiences that some students are unable to experience until much later in their lifetime. Also the medical program has helped gear me toward what i'd like to do as i pursue a career in the medical field. My experience here as a 3 year varsity soccer player also has been a good experience. Although we only a summer league championship during my years it's taught me a lot. The main thing that i've learned from playing these 3 years is that no matter how many times you may fall, when you get up and continue fighting you will accomplish what you want to do, or in other words the amount you put in to something is what you'll get out.


Overall Experience   2013-11-01
My school had good parts and bad parts. Some of the teachers were not relatable and the students either. But i liked my school and the people I met over all. I feel like I did well in my school but I could have done better.


Overall Experience   2013-04-01
Although the overall security and administration in the school is very poor, my experience in Baldwin Senior High School was very interesting. The diversity in the school brought so many new ideas, and group of friends which change your mind set and your thoughts about school work, life, and what will be coming next after high school.


Overall Experience   2013-03-01
We have a lot of extracurricular activities. We have so much school spirit for every sport. Our whole school unites for huge sporting events. I love going to football and basketball games because everyone sits together and we all have fun together.


Student Culture & Diversity   2015-06-01
The school is very diverse which I greatly appreciate because of the integration of so many different races and cultures and people that have everything unique in their life compared to the next student. The difference made the school interesting and I'm glad I can say I know many people of many backgrounds.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-10-01
The Diversity at Baldwin Senior High school its a good mix . however there are more minorities over the years.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-09-01
I keep to myself most of the time so I rarely get peer pressured.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-07-01
There is certainly diversity in this school, as one look in the hallways will present to you a variety of cultures, races, and orientations.


Teachers   2016-06-01
Some of the teacers may at times go above and beyond but some just put in their required day and seem to have no other interest


Teachers   2016-05-01
Majority of the teachers at Baldwin are extremely qualified and often they do know what they are talking about. You often get what you put out. If you study and try to excel; go to extra help, study outside of class, pay attention, do your work, etc. you will, 9/10 times you will get a good grade. But to go against this, if the teacher isn't to fond of you they might take points off of your class participation average which is often a large part of your grade.


Teachers   2016-05-01
Some of the teachers are really involved in the student's success while others are not. Many teachers are only interested in the students that are over achievers and make them look good. if they would take more time with students who need their help, I feel like the students, teachers and parents would all appreciate the help and the students would thrive. This would help the overall success of all the students and the school.


Teachers   2016-04-01
The teacher's techniques in teaching vary, but they tend to not individualize students needs. If you are in honors and AP classes, you will get the most insightful and top notch teachers you can find. Unfortunately if you cannot keep up with that type of curriculum, you get stuck with teachers who usually do not care as much, are not consistent with grading polices, and do not care about your well being because you're not as smart.


Teachers   2016-04-01
The language teachers are the worst to deal with, but the social studies teachers are the best overall in terms of lessons, personality, and they care more about the students


Teachers   2016-09-01
The teachers are alright. They help and encourage you to achieve your best work.


Teachers   2016-08-01
The teachers at my school vary. My experiences with teachers at my school have been good for the most part.


Teachers   2016-08-01
Some teachers can do better while some teachers are great.


Teachers   2015-12-01
Teachers in Baldwin HS are okay at teaching. Not all teachers are the best at everything, they their best.Every school does have its best an worst, and Baldwin does have that. Students are encouraged to go to extra help but no one goes because of the way teachers help them.


Teachers   2015-06-01
I've had a more enjoyable teachers than the opposite. Many have been inspirational teachers that create lessons of intrigue and involvement and teach with a present ardence; many of the teachers I've had remind their students that they just want to see them succeed and you can tell they mean what they say in their facial expression and interaction with every student. I have about 4-5 favorite teachers who have even influenced me to become a teacher and they have created a high school experience that will coat my memory in moments I will think back to and smile at.


Teachers   2015-02-01
The teachers are very engaging although often hard to reach and seldom answer emails


Teachers   2014-03-01
For the teachers that work at Baldwin high school there are a few teachers that you will remember because they actually teach students things that you will need in the real world but for the rest of the teachers they don't care about the students they just want you to do your work or you fail.


Teachers   2015-01-01
The teaching is okay. Some teachers are wonerful yet some lack in various areas.


Teachers   2014-10-01
I can only speak on the teachers I have had and overall, it was pretty decent. They were very much involved especially my math and social studies teachers when I reach out for help. I feel like my english teachers could have done more to prepare me for college.


Teachers   2014-06-01
I have had great teachers and some really bad teachers. That is life.


Teachers   2013-04-01
There are a few that could be changed overall the ones I've had experience with are great.


Teachers   2013-03-01
Perhaps not the best, but the teachers at Baldwin are pretty good and do their jobs. I've had some really great teachers as well as a couple terrible ones but overall I was able to learn the material and progress through my high school career. If you're willing to put in the effort, the teachers will work with you, provide extra help, and make sure you get a passing grade.


Teachers   2013-03-01
Most teachers are very knowledgeable about the subjects they teach. They are very organized and offer 2 extra help sessions weekly to help students that are struggling with the coursework.


Academics   2014-06-01
NYS Regents diplomas required. Plenty of AP classes available. Robotics club. Academics are good.


Academics   2014-04-01
We are offered a variety of classes ranging from Marine Biology to Sociology but budget cuts have been forcing cuts in areas like music and the arts.


Academics   2014-03-01
Academically I believe Baldwin high school is harder classwork wise and test wise compared to other high schools. I attended Oceanside high school for two years my freshman year and sophomore year and I did better in Oceanside and I didn't as well as Baldwin because of my grades being lower. The curriculum In Baldwin is more difficult. For example in Oceanside to get into honor roll you have to have an 80 average and for Baldwin you have to have an 85 in all classes to get on Honor roll.


Educational Outcomes   2013-07-01
This school does provide their students with opportunities that will help them in the future like the BOCES program and the extensive AP courses. However the guidance counselor a do not guide the students to take courses that will individually help them they provide the students with the standard curriculum and nothing more.


Educational Outcomes   2014-06-01
The education is good but the facilities are low standard.


Academics   2013-04-01
Programs that may no longer be there anymore are exceptional.


Academics   2013-03-01
The teachers are open to giving extra time for understanding topics and finishing tests. The curriculum is challenging but with effort and focus can become interesting. The scheduling process is made to be easy by our guidance counselors. The workload isnt too bad.


Educational Outcomes   2015-06-01
Well I haven't graduated just yet, so i'm not exactly sure how well Baldwin High School has prepared me for the "real world." I think in terms of continuing my education high school has helped me understand the expectations of colleges because many of the classes were fairly challenging. However, in terms of life outside of a learning environment, I'm very nervous to enter the "real world." I don't know anything about the little things involved with being an adult like simply looking for an apartment, paying rent, applying for an actual job, paying taxes, buying groceries and such, etc. To be honest, I don't even know who I am! I've spent much of high school worrying about everything related to school, but never worrying about understanding myself or my wants or my needs because I was always focused on what others expected of me. Regardless, the education was, I think, sufficiently advanced and there were plenty of memorable moments and lots of people I came across that will forever have an impact on me and that'll remain with me for a long time.


Educational Outcomes   2015-04-01
It is extremely stressful and nerve-racking but its exciting !


Academics   2013-11-01
average academics learning not much to say


Educational Outcomes   2014-10-01
Not every minority type was a a priority, different race groups learn differently then others.


Educational Outcomes   2014-08-01
I do wish they had more realistic classes available A class i'd say that's available and personally highly requested is career planning and other preparatory classes. There should be more classes that are required and available to EVERYONE to take to aid in preparation for college.


Educational Outcomes   2015-03-01
I found the classwork in high school very easy, and I didn't feel like I needed to put a lot of effort into getting good grades. In this regard, I don't think my high school prepared me very well for the work load that I would face in college.


Academics   2013-05-01
The school always seems to have problems with scheduling classes for the next year. Every year on the first day of school there is a long line of students who have issues with their schedule and the guidance counselors try their best to solve it but its always a hassle. They do offer a lot of electives and honor course for students.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-03-01
The scene at Baldwin isn't a very diverse one. There are different social groups here and there, as well as some individual who have no problem being themselves. For the most part, though, the scene is composed of Jordan wearing guys that try their hardest to impress any of the similarly clone like girls. You probably won't get wind of their parties or hangouts unless you conform to their lifestyle. It's like the world's most boring high school drama.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-10-01
I feel as if the 2012-2013 school year was more diverse than it is now.


Overall Experience   2016-06-01
Some of the programs are ok but the coaches would make it better if they didnt play favorites, it affects the students


Overall Experience   2013-09-01
I am new to this school so I haven't made much friends. I actually I haven't made any friends.


Student Culture & Diversity   2013-04-01
Being that there is much diversity in Baldwin Senior High School, no one puts too much emphasis on what is right or wrong. Drugs and Alcohol is a huge deal but the administration tolerates it. Sexual activity is very common, and all of these topics are natural as well as common to speak about as if they're not serious. It is very hard to be accepted, because although there are many different people around this school, there is a lot of discrimination against them.
