Grand Blanc Community Schools District is known for its high scores on the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) test, the statewide tool of assessment used to measure students' progress in their education. It has nine elementary schools, two middle schools, and one local public high school, Grand Blanc Community High School. All 10 of these schools have received top ratings from the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) report card, the national assessment tool for evaluating school performance. This range of top-rated schools makes Grand Blanc a great place for your school-age children to reach academic excellence without the cost of private schooling.
Parks and Activities
There are three city parks in Grand Blanc, two of which offer traditional play and recreation for children. The third, Commons, is a 137.5 acre nature preserve where you can hike along the beautiful green trees and trickling streams. Grand Blanc has much more to offer in terms of outdoors activities, recreation, and special events, however. Captains Club at Woodfield is an 18-hole golf course and club that has received top awards both statewide and nationally for its course, views, and the wedding events it hosts. Feel like a leisurely stroll? Visit the Grand Blanc Farmers Market, which is committed to supporting local produce farmers as well as craftspeople.
The Grand Blanc Heritage Museum is a not for profit managed site that relies primarily on donations to help preserve the city's local past and help develop the present. In addition to the exhibitions it has on display for casual perusal or tours, the museum helps conduct genealogical searches and offers for sale quilts and other woven goods made by local folk on-site. The Museum Piece-ers, the group who meets weekly to make quilts at the museum, are able to offer help in dating antique quilts. This is a great site for learning about local life, especially what has been most valued over the generations.
