Baldwin Middle School is a diverse and dynamic teaching and learning environment for grades 6 through 8, which bridges the academic growth of students from the elementary level to high school. Students are grouped into academic teams to ensure this successful transition. In grade 7, students may start to accelerate through the honors program. 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.
Signature programs at Baldwin Middle School include presentations from the honors students in the annual Math Fair, Science Symposium, National History Day, and Evening of Humanities. Further, all students participate in long-established school-wide activities and events such as grade concerts, spelling bee, Someone Special Breakfasts, Honor Roll Breakfasts, Multicultural Week and Festival, and Blue and Gold Night. Everyone looks forward to the annual middle school musical in which students perform on and back stage, and every year middle school students participate in the "spoken word" presentation at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. To culminate the Baldwin Middle School experience, eighth graders participate in the "Moving Up" Ceremonies in June.
