BHV is premised upon neighbors helping neighbors through social, educational, and recreational activities. BHV volunteers help others with transportation, friendly visits, errands and basic household tasks. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the BHV has the authority to grant SSL hours to students who wish to volunteer.

Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) PEP Transfer Decision. MCPS has decided not to transfer at least three pre-school, special needs education program (PEP) classes from Ashburton Elementary School to Bradley Hills Elementary School (BHES). According to an April 5, 2017 email from Dr. Andrew Zuckerman, the Chief Operating Officer of MCPS, the PEP classes will be relocated instead to Wood Acres Elementary School and Luxmanor Elementary School. Dr. Zuckerman stated that MCPS “conducted additional analysis of the enrollment data for Bradley Hills” and that “given the very real possibility for future enrollment growth at Bradley Hills” the decision was taken not to transfer the classes to BHES.
