Park Ridge Academic Magnet School
A new, exciting and innovative program to "ignite a passion for lifelong learning” arrived August 2011 to better serve our eligible students in grades 1 through 5. Subsequently, kindergarten was added. Then, on February 18, 2014 the City of Baker Board of Education approved adding middle school grades - sixth, seventh and eighth, to Park Ridge Academic Magnet School beginning with the 2014-2015 school year.
The magnet program offers an enhanced, challenging and technology-integrated curriculum complemented by visual and performing arts, a foreign language, educational excursions, mentoring, virtual experiences, competitions and other experiences that will "land” students far beyond the traditional classroom.
This innovative concept can best be described as a "lots of” program -- lots of teaching, lots of learning, lots of fun and lots of excitement.
Parents and eligible students must be a part of this "lots of” concept – a progressive movement in the City of Baker School System.
