In-District Open Enrollment - Transfer Request

What Is In District Open Enrollment?

Bloomfield Hills Schools commonly allows resident students to attend school at the building of their choice, if certain requirements are met.

What Are The Minimum Requirements?

  • Space is available at the receiving building.
  • Transportation is provided by the student/family.
  • Approval from the "school of residence" principal is obtained.
  • Approval from the "school of choice" principal is obtained.
  • Approval from the Assistant Superintendent for Instruction is obtained.

How Do I Exercise My In District Open Enrollment Option?

What Happens Next?

  • If necessary, contact the school of choice to confirm the first day of attendance.

Important Notes:

  • A transfer request is building specific. A new request must be submitted if your child changes buildings for any reason.

English Language Learners at Bloomfield Hills, Elementary, Middle, and High Schools in Michigan

Bloomfield Hills Schools welcomes children from all over the world. Our goal is to expedite English language learning and enhance each child's acculturation into American schooling. We have several options available for English language learners.

Our Newcomer Programs are designed as a one-year intensive English language experience. The District classrooms, located at Lone Pine Elementary and West Hills Middle School host non-English speakers in first through eighth grades. Children are welcomed into a friendly group atmosphere where basic interpersonal communication skills and academic language are taught in an anxiety-free learning environment. As the students' English proficiency increases so does the opportunity to join their English speaking peers for additional academic instruction.

Non-English speaking high school students are enrolled in English and social studies classes specified for English language learners.

Students who have limited English proficiency (LEP) receive academic support from certified English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers in addition to their classroom instruction. ESL support continues until students reach a level of English proficiency as determined by annual assessments.

Families are notified when students are eligible for ESL services and are encouraged to be involved in the educational process.
