Excellence and Equity for All
Baldwin Union Free School District maintains a rigorous academic program for K-12 students in a vibrant teaching and learning community.
The district communicates with community pre-K programs to help the transition of students into kindergarten and the district elementary schools. At the elementary level, there is a strong foundational curriculum in place that supports students with the Common Core Curriculum Standards and New York State Assessments through balanced literacy and the Eureka Math program, which was built around the core principals that students need to know more than just what works when solving a problem—they need to understand why it works.
Middle School Level
Students in Baldwin Middle School benefit from a team approach to teaching and learning. The middle school bridges the elementary curriculum with the continuation of the Eureka Math program in grades 6.
Students in grades 7 and 8 are prepared for high school readiness and are given pre-Advanced Placement options in a schedule that is more reflective of the high school level. Students in grade 8 take the Algebra 1 Regents, which is their first high school course, and some also take the Earth Science Regents, a second high school course. They also may participate in the Pre-Academy Program, which provides enrichment and the opportunity to sample High School Career Academy opportunities.
High School Level
The high school prepares students for college and career readiness through an rich and robust course offerings, an open Advanced Placement policy, Academic Academy offerings, college-level electives, higher education partnerships, and experiential learning through shadow days and internships in the award-winning school-to-career program.
The district also provides social and emotional support for K-12 students and offers a mentoring program that creates meaningful relationships between students and trusted adults. In addition, the district schedules a variety of parent workshops and meetings throughout the school year.
