West Bloomfielld High School was great. The staff there always encourages their students to try their hardest. They created many different events to entertain the students and make learning fun. They also have many different student lead organizations to get all of their students involved. Even if you like Pokemon cards they have a organizations for that as well. They just remodeled the school and added study rooms. So if you have an exam after lunch, during lunch you can have a quick study session in one of the study rooms. Don't even get me started on school lunch. Yes they are healthy but they find ways to make it tasty. They have stir-fry Wednesdays and it taste great. Overall West Bloomfield HS was great and i would recommend it to anyone!

West Bloomfield High School is a diverse school environment. All ethnicities and cultures are represented at WBHS. There is a no tolerance for bullying and the principal leads that charge. If you have a problem his door is always open and he investigates first hand. The academic environment is also challenging if you as a student are willing to take in the college preparation course load. You have the chance to be pushed in science, technology, engineering and math, but you have to enroll in course that keep you moving forward in STEM! The thing I would change is the ability for all students to have programs centered around their community if they choose to seek that opportunity. For instance there is an African American Awareness. Club and all students are welcome to join, but there needs to be a bigger emphasis on inclusive clubs like AAA so all students can learn about each other’s backgrounds.
I love that West Bloomfield offers a variety of courses for students of all interests to take part in. The food is okay, with a wide choice offered. The sports are excellent; we seem to excel in every sport there is! We take the time to admire and appreciate all forms of diversity, and make sure to every student, no matter what, is accepted and feels welcomed. The large quantity of clubs ensures students that, no matter an interest, they will find something they enjoy, with new clubs being added each year. Police regularly patrol the area, so safety is not something that I ever question or worry about. Overall, a great place to go and attend.
