The Online Back to School Registration process will begin on Monday, July 1, 2019, for the 2019-2020 school year. If your child plans to attend school (Kindergarten - 12th grade) in Bloomfield Hills Schools for the 2019-2020 school year, you are required to register annually.
From Hindu priests to Muslim imams to Zen Buddhist teachers to Jewish rabbis to Catholic priests, all have hosted students from the Bloomfield Hills High School IB World Religions class at their religious sites and visited the class to speak on their religions. "One of the things we try to do is take advantage of the incredible religious diversity in this community. Literally, we have all the major world religions within 20 minutes. Instead of me teaching everything or the kids presenting to me, I have local religious leaders come in," explained teacher Matt MacLeod. "This is something that most public schools don't have, and you just don't get other places. It promotes understanding and diversity."
