Students at the new Bloomfield Hills High School are experiencing a first-of-its-kind learning experience when they go to school each day.
Completed in 2015, this progressive high school was designed by Stantec’s Berkley, Mich., office and Fielding Nair International. It is the first school in the United States with dedicated space for learning communities, each of which integrates core classes in a collaborative, technology-rich environment. Students are able to dine throughout the facility using a distributed dining concept that strengthens relationships within individual learning communities.
Designed to support pedagogy that emphasizes personalization and collaboration, the high school looks and functions unlike any other.
