Alma Bryant High School opened its doors in 1998 after two southwest Mobile County schools (Mobile County High School in Bayou La Batre and Alba High School in Grand Bay) joined together on one campus in Irvington, Alabama. The students were given the opportunity to select blue, white, and silver as our school colors and Hurricanes as our mascot.
Finally, the steering committee submitted names to the board for the new school, and the name was selected by majority vote. Miss Alma Bryant, a former principal at Alba High School and a former teacher at Mobile County High School (Grand Bay High School), was the inspiration for the name selected. With over forty years combined as a highly respected educator in south Mobile County, Alma Bryant signifies academics at the highest level as we build students who are College and Career Ready!
