OPINION: BHS High School Bond to Maintain Excellence and Property Values
"How are the schools?" Was our first question upon moving to the district.
When we were deciding to move to the Bloomfield Hills district 20 years ago, our first question was "How are the schools?" The answer then was "Excellent!" Our two children both got a high quality education here, with broad academic choices including AP classes, small class sizes, and a wonderful music program. Our last child is graduating this year, and all the children in the district deserve this same superb education.
The high school renovation planned with the BH school bond will enable the excellence of the academic programs to continue, even in the face of shrinking school funding and enrollment. A single renovated building will reduce the cost of maintaining two old, degrading buildings and allow efficiencies that will save money for programs every year. And with the existing bond that is being retired, our taxes will not go up.
We're voting "YES" as an investment in our kids, our community, and our future property values.
