Just last year, the school’s Bloomfield Hills campus was ranked 30th in the top 100 schools nationwide by U.S. News & World Report.

But this year, the school is getting attention for a different reason: an online petition is calling for the removal of its principal, and the school’s governing body faces allegations it has repeatedly violated the state’s open meeting law.

A petition, started by a former student on Jan. 27 at, calls for the removal of Lynne Gibson, principal of all three International Academy campuses in Oakland County, in response to concerns raised by teachers, former students and parents over Gibson’s involvement in the establishment of a private school in China known as the Qingdao Okma International Academy.
