Seth’s new High School

September 2, 2015

Two years ago we (residents of Bloomfield) voted for a new high school.   This was a millage.  Meaning OUR (not the state’s) property taxes pay for this.

We had two high schools (Andover and Lahser), but both were shrinking in student population, and were getting old.   The costs to staff and maintain / repair / remodel two high schools was high.

So we made One (Bloomfield Hills High School) and we moved all the 10 – 12 graders to “old” Lahser High, and put the 9th graders in a previously closed middle school.

There is where Seth was last year.

The abandoned school (Andover) was partly torn down, and partly used in this “new” Bloomfield Hills high school

This year, the new school is open!  First day of school is Tuesday.   It is an amazing building!    Can’t wait for “parents night” to get a chance to see it up close.

$80 million.   2 years construction.  317,000 square feet.    1700 students.     Best public school in the state (not only highest state test scores), but now the nicest school building I’ve ever seen.

Takes “learning environment” to a whole new level.    I’ve been told there’s going to be a Starbucks in the school….     I hope so.   How sweet would that be?!

The Bloomfield school system was the reason we moved here in 2010.  Now…   It’s paying off more than I expected.

    Good stuff, Jimmy (and Seth)! In Canada, the facilities are usually said to be only about 5% of the cost of “education”, with the bulk of the money being put into salaries for teachers, administrators etc. So, it is a no brainer to make a good school. And having a Starbucks right there on campus may help keep the kids awake through history class. lol Nice!
