The Education System:
Baldwin City is traditionally dedicated to youth and education. Programs for all ages, preschool to adult are available. Located in southern Douglas County, the 139 square mile district combines the elements of rural living, state highways and easy access to metropolitan areas to provide numerous opportunities for quality lifestyles.
Unified School District 348 offers programs for children of all ages. Special Education, tutorial programs and college-release classes are a few of the opportunities available to students.
All schools have received accreditation from the Kansas State Department of Education.
Four schools are located in the Baldwin City community: the Primary Center, the Intermediate Center, the Junior High, and the High School.
Existing since the 1860′s, Baldwin offers a great blend of gracious older homes and comfortable new construction. Home of Baker University, the town also provides a variety of recreational activities which range from traditional sports, lakes for fishing, library programs, a quilters’ guild, and a 9-hole sand-green golf course to several significant historical points of interest.
Approximately 50 civic organizations and seven churches provide other avenues for anyone to become actively involved in the community.
Maple Leaf Festival, held the third full weekend in October, celebrates the fall season with a parade, entertainment, and 250 craft booths. The area’s various deciduous trees are almost always in full color for this festive weekend which annually attracts thousands of visitors.
