On May 6, 2014, the Novi Community School District is asking voters to consider a $70.9 million bond proposal. The bond proposal results in no increase in the current millage rate. The bond focuses on sustaining our district capital assets to provide the highest quality educational experience for our students. This bond proposal comes after a comprehensive facilities assessment, a review by a citizens committee, and a thorough examination by the Board of Education. Details of the proposed bond are available here.
Learning Community With High Expectations
Orchard Hills Elementary has a long history as a learning community with high expectations. For more than fifty years our quality staff has been serving students in a well equipped facility for learning, including many technology opportunities. In addition each child receives Art, Music, Physical Education and Media. Every effort is made to offer an enriching, safe and respectful learning environment for all children.
The Orchard Hills staff believes that:
children are unique in their own social, emotional, intellectual and physical needs and abilities with inherent dignity and self worth;
education is the primary responsibility of the school in cooperation with student, home and community;
there are basic skills which the elementary child should master to ensure successful future academic endeavors; and
children should learn best in an environment which is safe, orderly and nurturing
