Over the summer of 2020, students from Bloomfield Hills High School and International Academy joined together to form a new student group, called the Student Equity Council (SEC). This group of dedicated students has weekly virtual meetings, and has worked tirelessly to create a restorative, equitable school culture across all Bloomfield Hills Schools. Their Mission Statement reads, “We work to foster and preserve an equitable, justice-based learning environment across the Bloomfield Hills School District by holding the district and community accountable in instances of discrimination and injustice, and creating policy and programs to cultivate equity.”
Seniors Families! Please be sure to check the senior portrait information that has been posted at the bottom of this page!
