In the early nineteen-sixties, a group of ordinary people accomplished something extraordinary. They merged a group of country schools south of Niles to create the Brandywine School District. By 1963, the first proud graduates received their diplomas from Brandywine. Now, generations of Brandywine students have been able to call Brandywine their Alma Mater. The school district wants to keep serving students and the community.

In order to keep improving and graduating the best prepared young people, the district is asking community voters to approve a bond vote that will improve school buildings significantly. A new auditorium , a new Career-Technical facility, a new baseball field and significant necessary structural upgrades are all to be accomplished by voters supporting this bond. This will add no additional millage to residents’ tax bills. Please make sure to vote YES on May 7.
