Baldwin Early Learning Pilot Academy
We provide instruction in personal and social development, language and literacy, mathematical thinking, scientific thinking, social studies, the arts, music, technology, physical education, and swimming. We emphasize and use authentic “hands on,” critical thinking, and thematic approaches. Our goal is for all of our students to meet or exceed the performance goals for their grade level.
The Baldwin ELPA also provides safety net services and enrichment programs to enhance student learning. In addition to our teaching staff, we have a full-time nurse and social worker.
Each Wednesday is a professional half day that provides two hours of professional development for our staff.
