Special Features of Our Schools
Baldwin is a residential community comprising mostly of single-family homes. The community takes pride in and is strongly supportive of high standards of the school system. The reputation of its schools is, in fact, the most commonly cited reason new residents offer for moving to Baldwin.

Its 5,500 students are served by a professional staff of 469 teachers, supervisors, and administrators.
