Residents in this city are excited about their schools. Families who live here are able to choose from several different types of school when placing their children in education. With 10 elementary schools, two middle schools, and two high schools, kids' education is taken care of, whether they're in kindergarten or a teenager in high school. In Royal Oak, students consistently score well in the Michigan Educational Assessment Program and teenagers in high school score above state and national averages on the ACT pre-college exam. Add to all this the many parochial schools available to students, such as Royal Oak St. Dennis and Shrine of the Little Flower, and Royal Oak has good reason to be excited about their schools. With fewer than 90,000 people, this isn't a huge city, but it doesn't let that fact slow it down when it comes to doing good things, like selling bricks for paving the walkway in front of the Salter Community Center, rather than asking people to pay higher taxes, people are taking pride in their city one step at a time. Individuals or families can purchase a brick and have their names put on it. Arranging community gardens for people who live in apartments is another way residents work together for the bigger good.1

Mental Health in Royal Oak

Angel Kisses is a local non-profit organization that specializes in improving bereavement services for parents who suffer a late-term pregnancy loss or the death of a newborn. The organization raises tens of thousands of dollars each year to fund grief programs at local hospitals. Funds are also provided to create bereavement rooms where parents can spend their last moments with their baby in quiet comfort. The organization additionally offers funding to educate hospital staff on the grief process so they can better support the emotional needs of grief-stricken parents. 2

Social skills groups offered by the Judson Center address some of the common difficulties autistic children encounter in social settings. Small groups foster the development of attention skills, turn-taking, following rules, and effective communication. These skills are practiced in a structured setting so children can receive ongoing corrective feedback and praise. Activities that combine emotional and sensory regulation are included as well. Contact the Judson Center at 248-549-4339 for details about programs in Royal Oak.3
