Ezra H. Baker Innovation School
In 2012, Ezra Baker became a Innovation School. In these five years, we've worked to adjust our practices to meet two large goals: to make the most of each student's instructional day, and to support and extend student wellness. We are beginning the re-authorization process to continue as an Innovation School.Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions. Your responses will help us plan our next 5 years of Innovation!
