OPPORTUNITIES

EXCEL AT CITY HIGH MIDDLE

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE: City High Middle School is ranked in the top 5% of all Michigan schools on combined measures of student achievement and growth over time. It has been ranked among the top high schools in America by U.S. News & World Report for four consecutive years. City is also ranked as the top high school in the county by the Mackinac Center.

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE: Students in 7th-10th grades follow the Middle Years Programme, while students in 11th and 12th grade use the Diploma Programme. The goal of both programs is to develop life-long learners who are naturally curious, seek knowledge and think about complex issues, and can communicate confidently and creatively. Through the IB Program, students are well prepared for post-secondary education.

UNIFORM POLICY

The Grand Rapids Public Schools Transformation Plan calls for all students district-wide to wear uniforms.  City students will have the option of logo wear items as well as the existing school uniform choices outlined by the district at www.grps.org/uniforms

It is the district's expectation that all students will follow the uniform policy Monday through Thursday with non-uniform Fridays.  We do plan to offer non-uniform weeks on special occasions such as spirit, homecoming and Earth week.
