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
Pre-AP is for ALL students, not just honors students
