About the community: Baker City can easily be described as one of Oregon's most beautiful communities. Nestled in a lush valley with the rugged Elkhorn Mountains as a backdrop, Baker City proudly cherishes and displays its rich architectural history. It is also a place where children are a very high priority and where the schools are central to community life. Not only are parents and community members supportive of their schools, they offer a myriad of opportunities and facilities for young people outside of the education setting. Located along I-84, Baker City offers the qualities of small town life while still being easily-accessible to larger communities. As a population center for the region, many basic services are readily available. It is an area which offers abundant outdoor recreational activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, boating, and skiing. Some of Oregon's most dramatic rivers and mountains are literally on the out-skirts of town. With 1700 students and approximately 240 employees, Baker School District's staff is committed to a strong program of professional growth and a continual search for more effective instructional strategies.
