The mission of Baldwin Hills Elementary Pilot & Gifted Magnet School, a culturally and linguistically diverse community, is to work in partnership with the children, families and community we serve in order to provide a strong academic, ethical, and culturally responsive education with measurable results.

"Anchored and grounded in strengths from our pasts, poised and ready to soar."   -School Motto

Baldwin's unique approach to a culturally responsive and sustaining pedagogy
is supported by the non-traditional three-in-one school model.
