Academic Programs

John Baldwin is equipped with 21st century learning technology, including

  • 1-1 devices in 4th and 5th grades
  • Computers on Wheels (COWS)
  • iPad Carts
  • Document cameras
  • Macbook Computer Lab.

Our students receive instruction in reading and writing using a workshop model from teachers that have been extensively trained from Colombia University's Reading and Writing Project. This method of instruction allows for differentiated curriculum, student choice, and increased student engagement.

In collaboration with our district coaches and professional development from the Silicon Valley Math Initiative, teachers guide students with math curriculum through the current textbook adoption, Eureka Math. Students participate in number talks, direct instruction, centers, independent practice, and adaptive technology, such as Dream Box, on a daily basis.

Further, through the help of parent volunteers that raise funds for our school,students receive specialized instruction in science lab, art, music, and physical education.

Our students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of staff and parent volunteer led activities, including:

  • John Baldwin Student Council
