More diversity training for the educators, including the principal/office staff. Because it starts and ends at the top just as in the home environment. My light skinned mixed son didn't know what racism or bullying were until moving into the school district, and the school's are why we moved.
Unfortunately, he was in a middle school with only 15-20% minority luckily there was only (1) senior high school and an about 35% minority mix, along with more attention paid to diversity in all respects.
Bloomfield Twp is primarily residential, no fast food or party store type businesses, mostly doctors, lawyers offices. Residents take pride in ownership and don't move often driving up prices and the school's are Rated A+ , private unless you live in district.
Lastly, BT is very safe with a police/EMS response time of 2-3min. I personally walk my poodle at 3a in my house coat& feel comfortable and safe.
Thanks

Great schools and safe community. Homes has large lots with values welcoming to families. Older population can make this area boring, but there are enough activities locally that make the community lively and entertaining. Affordability can be challenged with large houses, but there are housing zones that are welcoming to lower income and singles who do not need homes; not the most expensive community in the area due to township status.
I am mostly dissatisfied with this location because it is drive-only, being in the metro Detroit area, and because the people are generally business-oriented and materialistic. It is difficult to find folks who are intellectuals or engaged in social movements. Arts and culture lack and malls are major destinations. Basically I'd rather live in a city...
