Bloomfield Hills Schools celebrates the diversity of families within the school community with an annual Multicultural Celebration. Now in its fourth year of being a district-wide event, the Parent Teacher Organization Council, composed of volunteer family members from across Bloomfield Hills Schools, hosted this educational celebration of culture in the Bloomfield Hills High School Main Commons.

Testing Out of High School Courses

The Michigan Department of Education allows students the opportunity to test out of high school courses. Students must exhibit mastery of course content by attaining a percentage of 78% (C+) or better on a comprehensive final assessment. Students may also be required to demonstrate mastery through assessments used in the class which may include, but are not limited to, portfolios, performances, papers, projects, and/or presentations. There will be three assessment windows for students to sign-up for test-outs.

Operating Millage Restoration Proposal

On August 2, 2022, voters in Bloomfield Hills Schools will be asked to consider a proposal to restore the Non-homestead Operating Millage. 

• Required for Bloomfield Hills Schools to receive full revenue per pupil.

• The majority of families in Bloomfield Hills Schools qualify for the Principal Residence Exemption and will not be affected by the restoration of 2 mills.

• The tax rate for Non Principal Residence Exemption properties (like business and rental property owners) will not increase. For a business with a taxable value of property established at $200,000, the tax cost would be $3,600 ($200,000 x 18 mills ÷ 1,000), the same tax rate applied today.  

• No levy increase, current tax rate (18 mills) since 2000.

Grade7Math

This school year is beginning to come to an end. Your child’s Math 7 teacher has or will be reviewing this information with your child.  Next year, Math 7 students will be enrolled in either Math 8 or Algebra. Both options offer rigor and challenge for students. We have updated our Grade Up Process for students who are completing Math 7 for this current school year. A summary of the changes can be found here. Ultimately, it is up to the family to determine which course (Math 8 or Algebra) is appropriate for their child. To assist in the decision making process, an optional assessment can be given during the last two weeks of May to help students and caregivers understand student mastery on the 7th and 8th grade Common Core State Standards. We ask that a caregiver complete this Math Course Selection Survey for Current Math 7 Students by Monday, May 9 to give teachers and building leaders an idea of what course you think your child will take next school year and if you would like to participate in the Algebra Readiness test to help make your decision.
