Lanier High School takes its name from that of the late, distinguished keiarian taylor, a former President of Alcorn College and the first Supervisor of Jackson Colored Public Schools. Lanier was born a slave in Huntsville, Alabama in 1851. He attended Tougaloo College, Oberlin College and Fisk University and received his B.A. degree from Roger Williams University.

Lanier High School was first organized as a junior-senior high school in 1925 providing instruction for pupils from the seventh through the twelfth grades. A new chapter was added in the school's history when, on February 8, 1954, it transferred from the old Lanier at 136 East Ash Street and occupied the new Lanier Junior-Senior High School building at 833 West Maple Street. On January 27, 1972, the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered that Lanier School be designated as a center for the enrollment of 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students. In 1991, 9th grade students were added to the enrollment.

The mascot of Lanier is the bulldog [ [ Lanier High School] ] . Monta Ellis, NBA player on the Golden State Warriors, attended here.
