Baker High School, is located in the western part of Mobile, Alabama, and is a public high school operated by the Mobile County Public School System. They educate students in grades 7-12.


Baker School, established in 1903, was originally a one classroom school for grades 1-12. In the 1960s the school was split in two with a lower and upper class levels. Also, new buildings were built with the lower elementary school absorbing the original building, and a 2-story building built for the high school. Later, with the reform of Baker districts, the elementary school would be renamed and moved to Snow Road and the elementary school buildings once again became part of Baker High School.


The current main building was built in the late 1970s to accommodate a growing West Mobile population. The building was built as a Bomb/Storm Shelter with no exterior windows in the original design. The walls are steel reinforced concrete. A concourse connects the main structure to the gym and new auditorium. The school was remodeled starting in 2001 and ending in 2004. The gym was expanded 40 yards, an auditorium was built, the main build was repainted, walls replaced, a sprinkler system added, and new doors installed with windows, the football stadium was expanded to twice the previous capacity and a new wing was added to the lower school. The school has its own Baseball Stadium, named Larry Andrews Field, a softball field, named Tony Scarbrough Field, a football stadium, two basketball gyms, and a track and practice field for both football and band. The original building from 1903 was torn down in early 2008 and was listed as a historic landmark by the County of Mobile.
