  • Claudia Baldassano (P '18, '23)

    "There is no place like Baldwin - I cannot imagine you can find better and more committed faculty than Baldwin teachers."

    Initially, I chose Baldwin for my two daughters based on its reputation for academic excellence, in which  Baldwin has far surpassed all of our expectations. However beyond that, Baldwin has given my daughters so much more. It has made them learners instead of memorizers, thinkers instead of robots, curious about their world not self-limited. Baldwin has made them ask why and how…and it has done all this in the most welcoming and warm environment.

    “Your daughters are going to grow up being confident, having a voice, knowing who she is and ready to go out into the world and make it a better place.”
     
    I'm kind of connecting two memories or two moments in time. One was coming to Baldwin when our daughter was four. We have two daughters, one in eleventh and one in ninth, and we were trying to decide where we were going to send them to school. My husband got a tour by one of the Lamplighters and she was a Baldwin high schooler who was taking them around. We were so impressed by her confidence, how she carried herself and interacted with others that we hoped that someday our daughter could be like that.

    “The number one thing for me is the all-girls aspect. I think there's a culture here that goes with the all-girls, but also the way they just specifically do it here.”
     
    The first thing was we looked at a lot of schools for my two daughters and this felt like home for them. I mean it was just like a guttural reaction and I was like, this was the place I wanted my daughters to be at. I didn't go to an all-girls school as it turns out, but my wife did. She started all-girls, spent the first half of her education in that then she went to coed. She was the only girl in AP Physics there. She felt that she could have taken all the other girls from her all-girls experience and dropped them in there and the class would have been 50/50.

    "At Baldwin, I see firsthand the value in an all-girl's school."

    Baldwin represents the school environment I wish I had growing up. I was educated in a middle-of-the-road school system and I knew it early on. It took me years to get caught up to my college peers. Instead, I want my daughter to be challenged for the right reasons, not for lack of a good elementary or high school education.

    "I can't imagine a better preparation for our girls for their lives after Baldwin. Truly, a uniquely wonderful place."

    My daughter Katie went to public school from grades 1-7. As she progressed through middle school, it became apparent that she was not challenged at all by the work. We determined midway through 7th grade that we would find an appropriate school that suited her. We did some research and quickly thought that Baldwin might be the right place.

    “…that's a tribute to the faculty, the administration, that they are doing such a great job with welcoming people here and having kids that are doing extraordinary things.”
     
    One of the things that has struck me consistently in comparison with the other schools is that I've seen a lot of forced diversity elsewhere, but it seems naturally diverse here in a number of different ways. I think that's a tribute to the faculty, the administration, that they're doing such a great job with welcoming people here and having kids that are doing extraordinary things.
