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.

UNIFORMS
The Grand Rapids Public Schools Transformation Plan calls for all students district-wide to wear uniforms.  Following feedback from students and parents, 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.  Below is the link to an order form for approved logo wear options from a district approved vendor.  Samples are available for sizing and order forms are to be submitted to City's main office with full payment.
 
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.
 
The following summarizes the City uniform policy starting the 2015-2016 school year:
  • Items from our logo wear options (royal blue, black or grey) or the options already outlined in the uniform policy as it stands.
  • Pants, shorts, skirts, skorts, and jumpers in khaki, black, navy blue, grey or dark brown.
  • Denim, sweatpants, track/athletic wear, jeggings, and leggings are NOT permitted to be worn as pants.
  • Tights, leggings and jeggings may be worn ONLY under skirts, skorts, shorts, or jumpers.
  • Be exempt from uniforms on special occasions as mentioned above.
  • Have non-uniform Fridays adhering to district dress code (regular clothes).
