Bloomfield High School is an establishment notorious for the diversity it harbors. Aside from having a beautifully diverse student body, Bloomfield High School is run by an excellent staff team that never fails to administer effective policies that keep students ahead of the game and out of trouble. The teachers are phenomenal. Each one has their own unique teaching style that keeps students engaged in the material being taught. In addition to this, most teachers are always available after school in case students need one-on-one help with their homework or have questions about what was taught in class. In my personal opinion, a strong staff team and amazing teachers play a critical role in making one's high school years an unparalleled experience. Thus, I can safely say that my high school years were the best.

I loved attending Bloomfield High School because of the many opportunities I had to learn, grow, and experience. I have gotten an amazing education, being in AP's and honors all four years, and involved myself in sports and community service as well. My high school also was the mixing pot of New Jersey, having every nationality, race, and religion you could think of. It has shaped us all to be respectful people, and growing up in a town with so much diversity, I consider myself lucky because I know I might never get this again. Bloomfield High School also had great teachers who have really helped me along the way, and also influenced me greatly. I owe a lot of my academic success to Bloomfield High School, and will always be very thankful and lucky for this experience.
It was a typical high school experience. There were lots of sports, awesome advisors, super fun proms and pep rallies, academic opportunities were abundant and many memories made that will never be forgotten!
