Facilities in the district include eight elementary schools, two middle schools, two high schools, one alternative school, and one Science/Technology campus. Birmingham Public Schools uses a curriculum whose standards are based on those of the national Common Core initiative.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Birmingham District Curriculum
The elementary Mathematics curriculum begins with a strong focus on number theory and simple counting. Students will enter the school system learning how to count objects and doing simple addition and subtraction. As students progress through elementary school, they will learn about more strands of Mathematics. Some of these include geometry, measurement, fractions, and money. Teachers use hands-on activities to give fun examples of how students use these math skills, for example, students may bake a cake to practice measuring or practice fractions by cutting food into different proportions.
Once students enter high school, they have the opportunity to tailor their education according to their own interests. Students must continue to take courses from the four core subject areas of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. However, they can choose from a wide variety of electives based on career or academic interests. Some of the electives offered include web design, fashion marketing, and personal finance.

Chalk Talk: The Benefits of School Athletics
While athletic accomplishments are not part of a student’s GPA, they are an important part of a well-rounded education. Sports offer many benefits to students both academically and socially. Playing on team sports teaches students how to work collaboratively toward a group goal. This skill will help students as they enter the workforce. Sports also help to motivate students to earn good grades as most programs have academic requirements in order to be on the team. Students who score below the required level are often given a break from the sport until they can bring their grades back up. Another benefit of school sports is that they offer a social connection for students. Having friends and common interests are an important part of the school experience for all students. Whether it’s basketball or field hockey, school sports programs offer students a variety of benefits both on and off the field.
