Birmingham Public Schools (BPS), formally the Birmingham City School District, is the public school district for Birmingham, Michigan. Beyond Birmingham, the district provides public school services for all areas of the following municipalities: Beverly Hills, Bingham Farms, Franklin, Southfield Township, Michigan; and parts of these municipalities: Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, Southfield, Troy, and West Bloomfield Township, Michigan. The current superintendent is Dr. Daniel Nerad.
Birmingham Public Schools runs eight elementary schools, one 3–8th grade school, two middle schools, two high schools, and one alternative high school. Each elementary school hosts a half-day preschool program, and the district also runs a preschool program out of Midvale BPS Early Childcare Center. The Birmingham Public Schools Strategic Plan calls for a curriculum that is updated and challenging for all students. Curriculum planning and staff development, incorporating developmentally appropriate practices, occur progressively beginning at the kindergarten level. Students in the district have access to a comprehensive arts program, music education, physical education, health life management classes, and world languages.
In 2009 the district introduced a unique program called !gnite. This program was developed after the success of the Engage program at Birmingham Covington School. The !gnite initiative strives to create flexible learning environments where technology is a seamless part of the process, ubiquitous in connecting learners to content, each other, and the global community. Students work extensively with digital tools to create podcasts, videocasts, still images, and mind maps; and use Web-based environments such as Moodle, blogs, and wikis to construct, communicate and collaborate across time, space, and geographical boundaries.
