Henry Perrine Baldwin High School (BHS) is a public school located in Wailuku, Maui. Nestled at the foothills of the West Maui Mountains in Central Maui since 1938, Baldwin High School is part of the Baldwin Complex, which currently serves just fewer than 4,200 students, most of whom live in the towns of Wailuku, Iao, Waikapu, Paukukalo, Waiehu, Waihee, and Kahakuloa. Students in the complex attend one of five schools: Pu’ukukui, Waihee or Wailuku Elementary (K-5), Iao Intermediate (6-8), or Baldwin High School (9-12). Of the approximate 4,200 students, Baldwin High services approximately 1400 students. Our school mascot is the Bear.
The BHS community is economically and ethnically diverse. The social/economic range of the families of Baldwin students includes low to high-income families with the middle-income sector being the largest. The median household brings in $50,000 a year. Families below the poverty level stand at 41%. Within the school’s complex area are the seat of government, business and industrial sectors, homeless and transitional shelters, Federal housing projects, Hawaiian homelands, agricultural businesses, and low to upscale residential areas. This mix results in rich social and academic diversity. In addition to the Hawaii Content Standards, State Common Core Standards and other required courses, BHS offers Career and Technical Pathways (Human Services, Culinary, Agriculture, Building and Construction, Media/Technology), Academies (Performing Arts Learning Center, Hotel and Tourism, Information Technology), a JROTC program, a range of Advanced Placement opportunities, as well a rich array of extra and co-curricular clubs and activities that enhance student learning. These offerings combined provide students with the necessary foundations and opportunities to prepare them for college or career.
The Western Association of Schools and Colleges has accredited BHS through June 30, 2025. Baldwin High School’s excellent reputation in the community for its academic offerings also extends to its co-curricular programs/clubs and athletic offerings. Travel and service learning project opportunities related to academics and/or curricular clubs are available. Students may also chose to participate in BHS’s many sport offerings (football, basketball, baseball, soccer, bowling, track and field, cross country, swimming, water polo, diving, golf, judo, wrestling, softball, air rifle, volleyball, surfing, and cheerleading). BHS athletic teams are very competitive and have captured several Division I Maui Interscholastic League (MIL) titles and Hawaii High School Athletic Association (HHSAA) championships.
