A Baldwin County education.
Education is important in Baldwin County. With over 27,000 students attending 45 public schools, Baldwin County consistently performs higher than national averages in standardized testing—thanks in part, no doubt, to the fact that more than half of our county’s teachers have earned at least their Master’s Degrees.
In addition to our excellent public schools, we also have several private and parochial schools, as well as two tech/career centers.
