    Birmingham Public Schools is committed to providing the highest quality educational experience for all students, with a strong focus on character education, where students are challenged and inspired to make a positive impact on their world. As a result, every decision is based on what is best for our students.  

    We accomplish this: 

    • By engaging students, teachers, and the community in district-wide initiatives such as curriculum review cycles, curriculum guide development, assessment selection and the development and facilitation of professional learning.  
    • Through academic freedom for our teachers, supported by high quality instructional materials that cultivates an educational community where all students can reach their fullest potential.  
    • With a wide variety of enrichment opportunities that meet students where they are, accelerates their learning and extends their skills and talents beyond the classroom.  

    We understand our students are unique people with distinct experiences, talents, and social-emotional needs. By keeping the wholeness of our students in mind, hearing their voices, and building partnerships with their families and communities, we cultivate a passion for learning.
