Mission: The Baker 5J schools enhance community vitality by providing opportunities for rewarding, individual educational experiences.
Baker School District is made up of four elementary schools, one middle school one high school, and one innovative high school. These schools serve a population of approximately 1700 students. In addition to these schools, Baker School District 5J sponsors two charter schools: Baker Web Academy, and Baker Early College. These two schools offer online education combined with teacher relationships. Baker School District recently launched Baker Technical Institute, a Career and Technical program which partners with regional employers and industry experts to provide an innovative education in hands-on fields.
Baker Middle School, Brooklyn Primary School, and South Baker Intermediate School are located in Baker City proper, while two of the district's smaller elementary schools, Keating Elementary and Haines Elementary, are located outside of Baker City.
