Baker Demonstration School is the independent school on Chicago’s north shore that is nationally recognized for excellence in progressive education. Founded in 1918 by Clara Belle Baker, a leader and pioneer in progressive education, the curriculum today still reflects the philosophy that children learn best through meaningful experiences and connections. Our child-centered approach to learning ensures that each child, from Preschool through Middle School, is uniquely valued, supported and nurtured throughout their educational journey. The results? — Expressive, innovative, compassionate students who are eager to help lead, shape and change the world.
