    Preparing All Students for Their Future  

    Baldwin High School provides a comprehensive curriculum to prepare students for post-secondary education and a model school-to-career program, which includes our innovative Academic Academies. Through this program, students gain real work experience through coursework, internships, “Shadow Days” and competitions through various community and corporate partnerships. There is an open-enrollment policy for Advanced Placement courses in nearly 30 subjects and a multitude of college-level courses that enable students to earn college credit. We also launched a unique partnership with Nassau Community College (NCC), where students take classes directly on the campus, as part of our mission to ensure that all of our seniors graduate future-ready. More information on dual-credit courses can be found in the high school's online coursebook

    Extraordinary Learning Environment 

    The high school's facilities include a state-of-the-art “Learning Collaboratory” (the former library), featuring various collaborative spaces and technology, a multi-purpose gymnasium, athletic fields and track, a television studio, carpentry room, two cafeterias, auditorium, and science labs. Our redesigned learning spaces encompass spaces for students to gain real-hands on experiences right within the halls of our school, including a court room, the Virtual Enterprise room—which mirrors an actual conference space—a medical lab, and more!
