International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme at Bloomfield Hills High School
Bloomfield Hills High School offers a fully-authorized Middle Years Programme (MYP) of the International Baccalaureate Organization. The MYP encompasses all Bloomfield Hills High School students in grades 9-10 and provides a comprehensive interdisciplinary curriculum framework. The curriculum is designed around eight subject areas. The units of study begin with a statement of inquiry, through which students can connect their learning to the world outside the classroom. The Programme requires students to participate actively and responsibly in preparation for their life in an ever-changing world. The capstone experience of the MYP is the Personal Project which is completed through the 10th grade year. This project allows students to integrate the philosophies of IB into a project that is personally defined and student-driven.
