    "I am so grateful for Baldwin and everything they have done to help me become a strong, confident woman over the thirteen years I spent on the gorgeous campus. Baldwin prepared me for college and beyond, as well as helped mold me into the person I am today. Baldwin is academically rigorous, and still has the best SAT scores out of the inter-ac schools. The teachers and coaches , my mentors and role models, are enthusiastic about learning and never fail to be creative. In addition to the stellar academics, Baldwin offers competitive athletic programs, including one of the world's best squash teams and an amazing tennis team. The arts are emphasized, and Upper Schoolers are offered courses ranging from playwriting to art history to jewelry making. Lastly, Baldwin's select a-capella group, the B Flats, manages to always sound like angels when they sing. Without the confidence and superb experience Baldwin gave me, I know that I wouldn't be the person I am. I am so thankful to this school and all of the teachers that dedicate their lives to the students. I hope that if you are reading this you will consider Baldwin, a place that had helped me exceedingly."

    "Excellent Academics. Strong focus on Athletics. The school's tagline "Thinking Girls" should read instead "Bullying Girls". Bullying is a HUGE problem at this school. Despite the so-called no tolerance for bullying, the school seems to largely ignore the problem and pays lip service to addressing the issue. A very big disappointment for us. Per the website "A delight in ideas, a sense of curiosity and humor, and a commitment to honoring the dignity of others are among Baldwin's highest values." Baldwin does a great job in fostering thinking outside the box, curiosity and humor, and new ideas. It falls way short of honoring the dignity of others by allowing a widespread "mean girls" culture to co-exist."

    "Amazing place. I went for 7 years and graduated from Baldwin. No other organisation has had such a profound impact on my life. As a senior executive in technology, I can confidently say that the experience has given me the confidence to go after my goals."

    "As a parent of 2 very different girls who are both thriving, I feel so fortunate to have found Baldwin. Our oldest daughter had started at another private school. At that school, by 3rd grade we realized the quality of education wasn't really that much better than public. Our daughter didn't feel challenged academically and we decided to look around. Our daughter visited Baldwin and immediately felt at home! The girls were so warm and welcoming. Now, 6 years later with my daughter in high school, I can not imagine a better school! The teachers are engaged and truly excellent. The community is diverse, inclusive and has a real warmth. My daughter loves school, has a lot of friends and feels challenged but not at all stressed. She is very involved in the arts and loves the variety..from jewlery making, to scultpure to painting, to photography..truly amazing! Our youngest daughter is in middle school and she too is thriving although she is a completely different child She is very involved in sports and community service. Baldwin is a place where every girl feels included and challenged and supported! I see how confident and happy my girls are and am so happy they are at Baldwin."

    "My daughter went there for many, many years. No sure how we survived that long. They keep poor educators and ineffective administrators far too long; just reassigning them somewhere else in the school. Most teachers are excellent. Music and sports programs are second to none. Diversity is excellent here mainly due to their scholarship program. Math program is very weak. No substantial individual assistance for students whom excel or fall behind in a subject. Facility, with exception of the new gym, is in desperate need of an overhaul. No security on any of the doors except the kindergarten area, which is run by another company. Tuition may increase since they built a $6M+ facility for sports and enrollment is down. Bullying is a huge problem that many parents/students complain about. Don't expect this to ever be resolved. We did not experience bullying, but surely not fun. While other local private schools start foreign languages in lower school, Baldwin starts in middle. If you really want your daughter to go - she better be highly competitive both in sports and education and very tough skinned to survive this environment; and you don't mind giving up your voice as a parent."
