My son is a sophomore at Baker this year and we love it! Even though there are a lot of students the teachers and staff build great relationships with students. The campus is kept clean and is safe. Any normal high school issues that arise are dealt with promptly. I do wish counselors offered more college/career planning.
My daughter is a freshman at Baker this year, 2013-2014. So far, she is enjoying high school a lot. She said that she is learning a lot and it is harder than middle school, as far as homework load, etc. She is in Advanced placement classes and likes all of her teachers a lot. Hope that this continues!!! We haven't been there long enough to suggest any improvements.
Amazing school for your kids, if you're living in Mobile send them to Baker High School.
This school is terrible. It is not a safe place for kids to learn. There's a fight or incident nearly every day. The police are always at this school for some violent incident. How they manage to keep it out of the media is beyond me. The principal is a bully. If I could afford to send my son to private school, believe me, I would.
Baker is a good school when you compare it to other Mobile public schools, but it is the least secure school I have ever been to or worked at. Anyone can walk in or out when they please, carrying anything they please. The school population (2700+) is too large for the administration to keep track of anyone, so the number of incidents is rapidly growing (just watch the news and see). The counselors and principal will do anything to let anyone graduate - even students who come to school a few days a semester. They will do anything to make their graduation rate look good, and the students know it and take advantage. Do yourself a favor and send your kids to private school or move to another district. Baker cannot guarantee their safety or that they will actually earn their diploma.
This is a poorly run school. Also the amount of incidents this school has that go unreported is appalling. The police are at this school almost everyday for various reasons. The staff seem to have no control over the students and do not seem to care. There is an obvious lack of leadership and direction. My student will not be returning after this school year. Also just so no one gets the wrong idea, my child has not been involved in any incidents this is merely an observation from myself spending a fair amount of time at this school.
Great school prepared me for many thing to continue my career the next level was a cake walk because of baker high
A public school, with private school standards that prepares its students to be sucessful at the next level and in life.
Baker High is a wonderful school with excellent teachers. It prepared me very well for college and the real world.
I'm a current Baker Student and now a senior (class 09').My high school years have been the best time of my life and i'm happy that the students have a low tolerance for bulling aka lack of a life. My time spent here has made me what i am today and has pushed me to live my dream as a health care provider(as well as giving me that chance).No,this school is not racist and anyone who thinks so is sadly mistaken.If you are a parent looking at this school to send your child to I as a student would recomend Baker. We have high test scores and recive millions of dollers for college.
Baker High School has a great honors program and many electives to choose from. However, the staff are lax in the enforcement of school polices and rules. There are so many students, the teachers only remember a student for a semester before having to learn the names and faces of new students. the school is very large and easy to get lost in.
I have been very disappointed in Baker High School. I feel they have let my children down. They do not have any concerns for the safety of their students. I have withdrawn both my daughters from Baker.
Baker is a very good high school it is very strict about discipline ****
I graduated from Baker High School in 2003. My brother now attends and he is a junior this year. Our uncle became the principal in 2004. I loved the education that I received at Baker. When I got to college, I was always one step ahead of my classmates. Thanks Mrs. Perry, Mr. Shelton, Mr. Butler, Mr. Willmann, Mrs. Fredella, Mrs. Mullin, Ms. Alexander, and all the rest. You are truly amazing and have inspired me to become a teacher. I graduate in December and will teach elementary students. Thanks for everything!
My two children received a great education at Baker. As always, the student has to want to learn as much as the teacher wants to teach. I highly recommend Baker High School.
Baker was the best of the 5 Mobile High Schools I substituted at. The facilities, teachers & students are the greatest!
As a former student at Baker who is now a parent, I would highly recommend this school to anyone. You won't find better academics in the county, and the teachers really care about their syudents, and want to see them succeed.
Hello, i just recently graduated from Baker high school in 2005. I loved it! Im a African American so the school is not racist some people are just dumb. I moved to California to go to college and I really agree that Baker is way more advanced than a lot of other high schools in other places.I miss the teachers a lot especailly my senior teachers u know who u are!

Baker High school is one of the best high schools in Alabama. I recently graduated from BHS, and would like to applaud the school for the education I received. BHS consistently attains high grades on standardized tests and grad exams. Overall, this year's senior class earned one-third of the scholarships given out to Mobile county student. The clubs available are also a great aspect of the school, especially the band program. It always received superior ratings at competitions, and this past year received a great honor. Baker band was selected to march first in the macy's thanksgiving Day Parade! Over all, I would reccomend Baker high school for a quality education, and a great experience.
