To enable learners to become architects of their futures, building on a foundation of scholarship, citizenship, service, and integrity.
Data Reflective of 2018-19 School Year
Bloomfield Hills Schools has created this dashboard to give a transparent snapshot of measurable components within the school system. This page shares a glimpse of our data for the former school year. You may access additional information by clicking on the links. Keep in mind that assessment is an ongoing process integral to instructional planning and the monitoring of academic progress. In addition to the data from the assessments included on this page, the educators in Bloomfield Hills Schools use a wide-range of tools and strategies to assess students, measure their progress, determine the effectiveness of our instruction, and to plan and implement future learning experiences for our students. We believe in enabling learners to become architects of their futures, building on a foundation of scholarship, citizenship, service and integrity.
BHS will provide an educational experience where all learners are empowered to reach their unique potential reflecting the BHS “Portrait of Learner”.
