Bloomington School District No. 87 Reviews
Bloomington is a very diverse school. I love how it has the most diverse student body in the area by a landslide. This school tries its best to shape us for the future. They offer career classes and college courses. I also love their effort in keeping us safe! They give us tips on how to be safe and they make sure we are in no harm. One thing they should change is letting the students have a voice. They should allow us to have opportunities to state what we want or allow us to at least speak.
This school has no intentions on trying to further student learning. Any kind of help you might need to try and better yourself is unavailable. The staff for the most part has a hard time teaching the material because majority of them don't know the material. I personally see myself as a good and hardworking student and, considering I've had mostly A's and B's my whole life I'd say that that is pretty accurate, but when I got sick half way through my senior year and missed what amounted to weeks of school, this school basically told me I should give up and fail because I was too far behind. Instead of encouraging me to push through and offer help they offered me the easy way out which was to just quit. I was met with multiple road blocks trying to get even my teachers to listen and help me. This school pushes students to the side, especially if you aren't in any sports. No sports no help is how I see it.
High school was definitely one of the best school experiences I've had so far. I've made multiple friends, exceeded in my academics, raised my G.P.A. and etc. At my school I found out I was able to participate in higher classes like A.P and honor classes. I didn't know that I was capable of higher level classes until teachers in my school recommended me to higher level classes. That also raised my G.P.A, and now I'm proud to say I'm at a 4.4 G.P.A. I also discovered that I have passion for playing the violin and that I am pretty good at it! If it wasn't for my orchestra teachers recommendation for me to participate in chamber orchestra, I don't think I would be furthering my participation in playing the violin. There are some things I can thank my high school for.
