My experience at Bloomfield was great. We have teachers who are engaged and care about their students. This school offers numerous opportunities such as internships, a wide variety of AP & Honors classes and clubs. Every student is provided with a Chromebook and our library just got brand new Apple Mac Desktops. Every year, upperclassman students are allowed to take the SAT for free in October and all AP exams are paid for by the school as well. In addition, this school is extremely diverse and was rated one of the most diverse schools in the country.

My daughter was a Bloomfield student from elementary (Brookdale elementary) all the way to high school and loved it. The teachers and principles all seem to care about each individual student. My daughter excelled in a supportive enriching environment. The STEM classes were fun and engaging, so much so that she decided that she wanted to major in a STEM career in college. She's now majoring as an engineer at one of the top universities.
The high school is a good school, safe and generally centered on education. Good school spirit and the school does a good job of providing resources and support for students to succeed. Racially and economically diverse. Wish that the teachers would focus more on college preparation and the district waste far less time with standardized testing. Overall a good school.
