The City of Baker School District believes that student academic achievement is improved by providing a comprehensive program of school-sponsored athletic activities. These activities are administered by dedicated, competent and caring coaches, advisors and sponsors.
Athletics provide the following advantages:
Athletics support the academic mission of our schools, teaching students self-discipline, self-confidence and skills to handle competitive situations.
Athletics increase academic performance and reduce dropout rates.
Athletics further the values of a positive lifestyle, promote the values of good citizenship and reduce the effects of negative peer pressure.
Athletics, considered part of a well-rounded education, reinforce a student's positive image towards self and school and minimize disciplinary problems.
