Mountain Brook High School, founded in 1966, is a three-year public high school, and the lone high school in the Mountain Brook School System. The school's 25-acre campus is located at 3650 Bethune Drive off Oakdale Drive near I-459.

Mountain Brook High graduated its first class in 1968. Enrollment has remained steady at just over 1,000 students since at least the mid-2000s.

School colors are green and gold. The athletic teams are called the "Spartans". A "Spartan Creed", connecting the school's ideals with those of ancient Sparta, was adopted by the school's faculty and student government in 2009. Numerous academic and service clubs and organizations are active at the high school, which formerly allowed social fraternities and sororities until the early 2000s.

Large-scale additions to the school campus were completed in 2022 and 2023, including a two-story, 42-classroom academic wing replacing two older buildings, a new guidance counseling suite, and renovations to the band room and dance studios.

Mountain Brook High School has been recognized as a "Blue Ribbon School" by the U.S. Department of Education in 1984 and again in 1993. It has been listed among the nation's best high schools by Newsweek and Redbook, and has graduated three Rhodes scholars.

Mountain Brook High School and also claims more AHSAA championships than any other school in the state, including a 1975 football championship under coach Robert Higginbotham.
