I have been a resident of BH for going on 10 years now. I have gone through the elementary and middle school systems through BHSD and am about to graduate high school. Overall, BH is a nice district with a variety of people of different creeds, ages, and identities. One issue is the weather-infrastructure blend. Roads are often filled with potholes which is only made worse during winter.

A very modern and welcoming community that accepts people of all race and religion. There is an excellent school district that caters to the specific student. The teachers really care about the kids and their education. Besides the academics, there are places of worship for many religious affiliations. This adds to the welcoming atmosphere of the city. The wide variety of restaurants is another appealing aspect of this city. The restaurants have many different options depending on what you are looking for. All of the different institutions as well as the wonderful people are what make Bloomfield Hills an amazing city.
This city could be great, but it decides to cater to its aging population who take an active "get off my lawn" approach when dealing with neighborhood children - rather than the young families with children who are moving in.

If I had known this now, I'd have moved to Birmingham which is one block over and actually family friendly.

Most of the houses for sale are either wildly overpriced, or haven't been updated since the early 80's.
