Advertising Information for besthousingvalue

High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11 and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
The International Academy, or IA, is a high school located in Bloomfield Hills, Oakland County, Michigan. The school was established in the year 1996. It was founded at the initiative of Lambert Okma, now principal, who was previously a respected economics teacher at Bloomfield Hills Lahser High School. It is a public, tuition free school of choice for students of 13 Oakland County school districts collaborating in consortium with university and business partners. The school was officially hosted by the Bloomfield Hills school district.
All graduates of the International Academy are expected to complete the full International Baccalaureate, IB diploma programme. All students are enrolled in at least six IB subjects in their junior and senior years. Some students take IB in their freshman and sophomore years, usually due to an extensive knowledge of math or a foreign language that causes them to place out of all non IB courses in those subjects. The International Academy offers two, Group 6 subjects music and visual arts. The visual arts course is highly selective at the International academy.
The International Academy is housed in the former site of Elizabeth Taylor Traub Elementary School. Though additions extending into the former playground have significantly increased its size, with over 550 students the building can seem overpopulated. Many teachers occupy several different rooms throughout the day to schedule sufficient classes. Still it helps the students to understand their true potential. The school helps them to acquire knowledge in a unique way resulting in the development of values which are essential for future success.
