My name is Dr. Hartley, and it is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the principal of Bloomfield Hills High School. Over my twenty-one years in public education, I have had the honor of serving students, staff, and community members with a focus on building relationships, meeting the needs of all students, and being a leader that listens, is inclusive, and collaborates to move buildings and districts forward around a shared vision for student success.
As the husband of a teacher and the father of two elementary aged students, I understand the importance of creating a school environment that is supportive of all stakeholders. As a former high school teacher, elementary and middle school principal, and district director for curriculum and instruction, I have a wide range of experiences improving upon the educational environments and student achievement within the Goodrich, Dearborn, Fraser, and Grosse Pointe Public Schools communities. I am committed to getting to know the diverse needs of our student body and supporting you in achieving your academic, social, and individual needs. My goal is to be a partner with students, teachers, staff, families, and community members to provide you with an exceptional educational experience and a school community that is committed to your success.
Bloomfield Hills High School is a special place. It is a place where students thrive in becoming college and career ready. It is a place where all students feel they have a home and connect to the school both academically and in identifying their passion. Our school will remain a place where we maintain high academic expectations, where our athletes compete and excel, and where our artists create and perform at the highest level. BHHS has built a reputation as a premier comprehensive high school and I look forward to becoming part of the educational community.
As your principal, please know that my goal is to help create an environment where we have strong, trusting relationships with students, families, staff, and community. Beginning in September, I will be scheduling meetings with our student leadership, clubs, and alliance groups. I want to learn about the many ways that BHHS is meeting your needs as well as ways we are not. I look forward to getting to know you all in the coming weeks, months, and years.
With Black Hawk Pride,
Dan Hartley, Ed.D.
