    "My two kids started kindergarten this year and I am very happy with this school. Mrs Butera, Mrs. Nilson, and Mrs Jimenez are wonderful teachers. They use various strategies to teach curriculum. Kids get math homework, English reading for every night. In addition to the work done in the class enrichment opportunities are available through their online resources "Dream Box" and " Raz kids". Before my kids started Baldwin I was bit skeptical about this school because of its rating but I am very happy. Principal Mrs.Millner is also very approachable and nice."

    "Echoing the concerns about the principal and the overpopulation. I have twins, both in the same TK class. We've been having lots of issues with the TK teacher & concerns are not being addressed by the principal or the district. 1. TK has so many kids that teacher can't keep up & is forced to resort to reacting to bad behavior rather than promoting good behavior. 2. The nursing staff can't/won't deliver first aid or even help with a simple bathroom accident. 3. There are many security & safety concerns failing to be addressed by the principal as well -- bathroom policy (kids getting locked outside during class), what to do in the event of a shooter on campus, etc 4. Our kids are backsliding and the TK teacher is encouraging it. Son is told to use right hand to write, even though he's left-handed (illegal). Daughter is told she can't read well (she's at a 1st grade level, she just gets lazy in class). More issues than this, but I've hit the character limit. This school is not a great place for younger children to spend their days. It seems that the issues we've experienced aren't as pronounced for some of the older classes. I'll be glad when my kids start at Ledesma next year."

    "This school is overpopulated and the teachers are put in a very difficult position. The School principal does not have a plan and does not care about parents concerns.. The school's web page has no current information and phones always send you to voice mail. This school is the worst school in the Distric. Avoid it."

    "I moved my son from a private school to Baldwin last Fall. He's in 2nd grade. He has had the best teacher so far here at Baldwin. Very helpful, guides the students well towards high academic goals, very creative and hard-working. She has spent so much time with my son after school to make sure he turns in his work. My son isn't the easiest kid to work with. He doesn't like doing worksheets. Over time, with his teacher's help and diligence, my son turned around and improved academically. My son has focus issues so he's not the easiest kid to work with. His teacher really went above and beyond in communicating our son's progress to us. We're very lucky to have found such a caring teacher, his principal and the community overall. The school really appreciates parent's involvement. The home school club is also a very helpful set of parents working together to continue improving the school. I have never gotten this from the private schools. I hope more and more parents get involved with their kids."

    "This school doesn't have the staff or budget to teach children. Each year I donate $500 or more in supplies. I don't mind the buying of supplies but my daughter falls more and more behind each year. Classes are chaos with almost 30 students per class and no aids. The principle's solution to this is uniforms because normal clothes distract children. I hate switching my daughter's school but it has to be done. "Julia Baldwin students are bound for college." But only if they don't need any extra help with learning."
