Hello! My name is Phil Anderson and I am honored to be the principal of Brooklyn Primary.  


Brooklyn is a fantastic K-3 school in the heart of Baker City, Oregon, full of bright students, dedicated staff, and supportive families. Here at Brooklyn, we maintain high academic standards while recognizing the unique social, emotional and learning needs of each child. Through strong partnerships with the surrounding community, we are able to provide a differentiated education that meets each child’s unique needs.


Brooklyn Primary has a staff full of creative and intelligent teachers. On our staff, you will find musicians, cooks, bikers, world travelers, and hikers. We take pride in practicing a growth mindset, often collaborating together to deepen teaching skills, reading books, and traveling the state attending classes. You will be hard-pressed to find a more talented, capable and hard-working group of educators. This truly is a community of lifelong learners.


We are very fortunate to have tremendous parent involvement at Brooklyn. Volunteers serve our school in many vital ways, from reading with children to chaperoning field trips. We work closely with our PTO to strengthen parent/teacher/student communication and education through field trips and other events. We are lucky to have such a strong parental involvement component at Brooklyn because we know this is critical to the success of our school.


Brooklyn has a rich history, and it is an honor to be a part of the Brooklyn Primary story. Please feel free to contact me at any time. I look forward to a year filled with learning and laughter.
