I really loved the teachers at Bloomfield High School! They were always willing to help you understand the material and you always knew they loved their jobs and they cared about their students! The classes were hard enough to challenge you, but not to push you past your breaking point (in my opinion). I had great experiences with the administration as well! Every single person in administration was very helpful, non-judgmental, kind, and informative! The students at Bloomfield High School, in my personal experience, were also very well-rounded and kind individuals. One thing I would improve is the mandatory state testing. It became so persistent and oppressive that it felt as though our learning was constantly being disrupted by one state test after another.

Bloomfield High is generally a good school. You have the basic small town rivalry that you tend to see in all the movies but... when it comes to the school itself, there's a few changes that I, and others, would definitely like to see be made.
The music hall, for example, is literally falling apart. The auditorium hasn't been renovated since the 90's, I believe, and the last thing they updated was the upholstery on the chairs. The band room has really bad ceiling leaks that they are yet to fix, which could also cause an issue when it comes to the auditorium. The water could leak so severely that it could cause an electrical problem.
Other than that, like I said, it's a generally good school. All my teachers are engaged, I have some resources that help me when it comes to my future, and the school spirit is something that I'd never wish to change.
I think the teachers were my favorite part of high school. They not only cared about students and their academics, but the things they were facing and struggles they were going through during school. They wanted us to be the best we could be so that we could live up to our full potential. We could always turn to them if we needed help in school or guidance to face any difficulties we were facing. Something I would like to see change would be a increase in the difficulty of academics. I felt like I and many other students coasted through and some areas could have been more challenging.
