The Baldwin School of Puerto Rico, located in the greater San Juan metropolitan area, is the premier independent, PPK-12, college preparatory English language day school in Puerto Rico. It is the first school on the Caribbean island to offer the Primary, Middle and Diploma levels of the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. "What is most congruent with our mission and the IB, is how both are focused on the type of environment that optimizes student learning," says Head of School, Mr. Greg MacGilpin. "We grow with the IB as it challenges us to reflect and act iteratively because of the diversity of our learners' experiences."

At Baldwin School, technology is broadly integrated in the classroom. Students use a range of platforms, applications and web-based software; to research, organize and create content. A fully modern, wireless digital mainframe allows students to leverage the world’s resources and conceive original content. Touchscreen technology supports literacy and numeracy across all grades. Interior and exterior laboratories combine hands-on and digital learning. "We were fortunate and deliberate in the transition to online platforms during our pandemic response. Our students and adults have innovated in both, grand and simple ways to share learning," says Mr. MacGilpin.

Baldwin offers a beautiful and spacious twenty-three acre campus, which is also a Certified Wildlife Habitat. Its location means that students can take part in a range of outdoor activities. Spectacular facilities include a swimming pool, tennis courts, field house, outdoor courts, soccer field, and a rainforest biological field station. Indoor facilities include science and computer labs, a performing arts center, a recording studio, multiple art studios, a dance studio, and music rooms.

Baldwin's student body very much reflects Puerto Rico’s diverse population. Students participate in dozens of co-curricular activities. Athletes compete at mini, youth, junior varsity, and varsity levels. Math, Science and Model United Nations teams also compete at the national level. Campus life includes opportunities to participate in many clubs and organizations, most of which serve the broader community through both service and donations. All of Baldwin's graduates go on to study at university, mostly abroad, including the United States' most prestigious colleges and universities.

Baldwin School is committed to the belief that every child can flourish if they are given the right combination of time, opportunity, and support.
