Bloomington School District 87 is a great district with great facilities. The grade schools and high school are very organized and accomodating. The junior high is ok, but not always organized in their events. The overall feel district is great!

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.
