Baden-Powell School, a California Gold Ribbon School, first opened its doors in the city of Anaheim in 1966. We currently serve over 750 students in general and special education classrooms, preschool to sixth grade. We foster a true culture of student leaders and learners where ALL students belong, lead and thrive. We have a significant populations of students with disabilities who are fully or partially included in general education classrooms. Our rich culture of inclusion has led to tremendous growth and learning opportunities for both special and general education students. Through Peer Assistance Leadership (PAL), students develop and demonstrate leadership skills. The Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program provides students with strategies to be successful scholars and to prepare for college and career. At Baden-Powell School, no matter what language students speak at home, where they live, or whether they have a disability or medical condition, they LEARN, LEAD and THRIVE.
