Birmingham Public Schools (BPS), formally the Birmingham City School District, is the public school district for Brimingham, MI. Beyond Birmingham, the district provides public school services for all areas of the following municipalities: Beverly Hills, Bingham Farms, Franklin, and Southfield Township, and parts of these municipalities: Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, Southfield (city), Troy, and West Bloomfield Township. The current superintendent is Dr. Daniel Nerad.
Birmingham Public Schools runs eight elementary schools, one 3–8th grade school, two middle schools, two high schools, and one alternative high school. Each elementary school hosts a half day preschool program and the district also runs a preschool program out of Midvale BPS Early Childcare Center.
The Birmingham Public Schools Strategic Plan calls for a curriculum which is updated and challenging for all students. Curriculum planning and staff development, incorporating developmentally appropriate practices, occur progressively beginning at the kindergarten level. Students in the district have access to a comprehensive arts program, music education, physical education, health life management classes and world languages.
The experiences and knowledge young children bring to school, combined with their natural curiosity, are the foundations for learning in the primary grades. The BPS program is designed to help develop children's potentials. The emphasis is on learning experiences which help children make connections between existing knowledge and new skills and information. All subject area outcomes are clearly defined, but learning is linked across these subject area boundaries. Classroom experiences are designed to be mutually reinforcing. In this manner, children see the connections between skills learned and their importance in real life. The district incorporates technology throughout the curriculum beginning in elementary school. All classrooms throughout the district utilize Promethian Boards, a type of interactive whiteboard.

In the fall of 2005, improvements to the park were completed. This restoration project included: dredging of sediment, removal of invasive species, shoreline stabilization, creation of a fish habitat, and an assessment of the tributary stream corridor. Restoration activities were coordinated with improvements to the adjacent park. Park improvements included the clean-up and beautification of the historic park, improvements to the water quality of the lake, and the extension of several pathways and parking areas to improve accessibility. Park improvements also included landscaping and structural enhancements creating several overlook viewing areas, installing a footbridge over the water just below the dam, addition of a new fishing pier, and an improved pathway system throughout the park.
