Default Experience and opinions of Brandon School District?

Been looking at houses and a few of them were in this area. What do you know?

Be a good parent and it'll be fine. General advice for all school districts.

x2

that being said, my Mom retired from there as a 4th grade elem. teacher. she didn't have anything bad to say about the district, but she had plenty to say about State mandates and regulations - which is probably in common with how many teachers feel in other districts. *Shrug*

Does Oakland County have a Skill Center like Genesee County? Just kind of interested in the various educational opportunities available.

I graduated from Brandon High School in 99 and attended school there K-12. At the time it was a great place to go to school and have heard that it has only gotten better (from friends that have kids that go there, I currently live one town over in Clarkston). They do offer a Vocational school in Clarkston that students are able to go to. I attended an electronics course there for my junior and senior years. As far as "busing kids in from Pontiac" I haven't heard anything about that, but don't know if they are either way or not for sure.
