Baker Implements New Pre-AP Program for All Students
Baker is the first school in Mobile County to implement the Pre-AP program. Phase One of the implementation includes Pre-AP English 1. All 9th grade students will be in one of the three Pre-English Classes (Pre-AP English 9, Pre-AP Honors English 9, or Pre-AP Capstone English 9). We have also added three Pre-AP Electives to our ninth grade curriculum. They include Pre-AP Dance, Pre-AP Visual Arts, and Pre-AP Theater. These courses will challenge students to build relevant critical thinking skills through the following shared principles:
- Close Observation and Analysis
- Evidence-Based Writing
- Higher-Order Questioning
- Academic Conversation
Be sure to check the Senior Class page on the Baker High School Website for important information and updates.
