Welcome to Edith C. Baker Elementary School!
The Edith C. Baker School

The Edith C. Baker School serves a K-8 population in the Chestnut Hill neighborhood of Brookline. It is the second largest elementary school in the town, with a population of 674 students. Our dedicated staff is committed to providing challenging, developmentally appropriate learning experiences that will facilitate each child’s cognitive, social, emotional and physical growth. Baker also offers system-wide programs that include the Korean English Language Learner program and an Intensive Learning Center program.

Baker School was fully renovated in 2000 and two new wings were added, creating a new library and cafeteria as well as more classroom space. In addition, a lovely sculptured garden which is also used as an instructional space during warm weather was given as a gift at about the same time as the renovation. Behind the school, a thirty five acre woodland sanctuary with trails, marshes and rock formations provides students and residents with an instantaneous retreat from suburban living.

Baker School is an “international” school, where fully one-third of the student population speaks English as a second language at home. Utilizing the resources of the K-8 structure, Baker encourages cross-grade level partnerships. This strengthens collegial relations among the faculty and creates ties between students at various grade levels.

A vibrant PTO supports all parents and organizes numerous educational and social events throughout the year to nurture and maintain a sense of school community.
