THE ROEPER SCHOOL RECEIVES GENEROUS DONATION AND PLANS RENOVATIONS

“A remarkable act of generosity realizes a transformative future for the Birmingham Campus,” is how Head of School David Feldman describes the recent donation of $451,000 from an anonymous donor to fully fund The Roeper School – Birmingham Campus/Beautification project. The Birmingham campus serves students in 6th through 12th Grades.

The expansive interior renovation project is slated to begin in June 2013 and be completed by the start of the 2013-14 academic year. The eclectic design scheme includes substantive upgrades in the corridors and stairwells of lighting and electrical fixtures; refinishing and painting of walls and doors/ frames; repair of deteriorating and missing wood frames; locker enclosures; installing acoustical ceiling grids; casual writing surfaces; accent color elements; new railings and stair surfaces and more.

Most especially, the renovation will create an “architectural canvas that reflects the dynamic energy and creativity of Birmingham community life,” said Denita Banks-Sims, Development Director. “Partnerships of this kind, …similar to the construction of The Children’s Library at the Bloomfield Hills Campus…,” she continued, “move the institution forward in very powerful ways and we are all deeply, deeply grateful to the donor responsible for this significant and extraordinary gift.”
