In 1951 Grand Rapids Public Schools passed a 20 year millage and in the first 10 years, designed and built 17 elementary schools and junior high schools and a service center.  Only some of these are still in use by the Grand Rapids Public Schools.  To learn more about Grand Rapids modern schools and what's happened to them  check out WMM's program at History Detectives  http://wmmodern.com/hire-wmm/#hire-wmm-1
