Bloomfield Hills Schools uses a teaching approach called the International Baccalaureate (IB) that is recognized worldwide. IB helps students become curious, knowledgeable, confident, and caring individuals. At BHS, IB is offered at all grade levels: Kindergarten to fifth grade (Primary Years), sixth to tenth grade (Middle Years), and grades 11 and 12 (Diploma Program). With the IB curriculum, students are encouraged to take charge of their learning and acquire skills that will help them succeed in a rapidly changing world.
Students thrive on experiential and active learning, which ignites their curiosity and engagement. At Bloomfield Hills, we embrace experiential learning through a range of approaches, such as classroom practices, interdisciplinary events, place-based experiences, both curricular and extra-curricular activities, and by leveraging community resources like Bowers Farm and the Johnson Nature Center.
Social Emotional Learning
We believe in the importance of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) as a proven method for student success. SEL is an evidence-based approach that empowers learners to develop healthy identities, manage their emotions, set and achieve goals, show empathy towards others, build supportive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
Dynamic Learning Environments
At our schools, we prioritize creating an optimal learning experience that promotes well-being and meets the diverse needs of our students. Our classrooms are thoughtfully designed with a focus on active learning, future-proof design, and alignment with research-based teaching practices.
From our exceptional D/HH program, to Wing Lake Developmental Center's warm and welcoming environment, BHS is proud of the myriad of services we offer special education students.
English Language Development (ELD)
At Bloomfield Hills Schools, we are dedicated to providing high-quality and meaningful educational instruction to every child, regardless of their national origin or native language ensuring all students have equal access to an enriching learning experience.
Learning never ends at BHS! From high school programs offering virtual and in-person experiences to our enriching Summer Academy for grades K-8, we are committed to providing continuous learning year-round.
