Welcome to Bloomfield Hills High School! This is a very exciting time for the high school as we start a new era in our new building for the 2015-16 school year. Bloomfield Hills High School is the product of the consolidation of Andover High School (1955–2013) and Lahser High School (1967–2013). Our new campus houses Bloomfield Hills High School grades 9-12, provides a permanent facility on-site for Model Center, and offers highly collaborative and technical learning spaces for our high school students.
"It's a big confidence booster going into college and beyond knowing that what I've done in the DP Programme is unparalleled compared to many other students," expresses Nathan Graham, Class of 2014 BHHS IB Diploma Programme Graduate. Learn more about what Nathan took with him from the Diploma Programme into college in his video interview.
The BHHS Black Hawk and Crest mosaics went up this week at the new campus. The Crest is located right outside of the main office and the Black Hawk is located in front of the gym. Thank you to our artists, Gail Kaplan and Dani Katsar, as well as to the Classes of 2014 and 2015 for all of their hard work created these beautiful pieces of art.
The Biff (WBFH) went on the air October 1, 1976, 39 years ago! They celebrated by broadcasting in the main commons outside of the radio station during lunch on Thursday. Mr. Hollerith, Mr. Sugg, and Mr. Kwasny even stopped by to say happy birthday and tried their luck with the bean bag toss! Check out @thebiff881 on Twitter for more fun photos!
During this week's Advisory lessons, sophomore students made connections between the aims (goals) of the personal project and Learner Profile traits. As students complete the project, they will reflect on how various traits (such as being creative and open-minded) helped them meet the aims of the project. Students also became familiar with the six Global Contexts which frame all MYP units. Each student will eventually select one Global Context to apply to his/her project, in order to broaden its scope. Additionally, students completed a Topic Finder activity, which helped them brainstorm possible topics. Finally, students became familiar with the Personal Project Plan Sheet, on which they will record their decisions about the project over the next several weeks. Most students will complete this sheet and have it approved by their Advisory teacher some time in November. After this point, it's full speed ahead and project topic changes will not be allowed.
