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.



  • Our goal at City is to help students develop the tools, skills, and habits of mind to thrive as adults, build flourishing communities, and create a more sustainable future for all the world’s inhabitants.
  • The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. 


  • We believe that all students can and will learn, will develop their critical thinking skills, will develop the ability to collaborate in a diverse environment, and become caring and open-minded global citizens.
  • All students will graduate from high school, matriculate into post-secondary institutions, and graduate from a post-secondary institution.



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

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.
