Personally, I love the city of West Bloomfield. Having moved hear from Novi a few years back, I was skeptical of it. However, upon arrival I had realized that I really liked the city. The operative word I would use to describe West Bloomfield is 'safe'. I feel very safe here; almost anywhere I go in the city I feel right at home. As a student at West Bloomfield High School I can say that it is great. The teachers are very helpful and dedicated! One improvement would be more sidewalks! I love to walk around and enjoy the beauties offered by West Bloomfield, these walks would be much better with sidewalks!

I like that West Bloomfield is close to the city, but you still feel secluded from the hustle and bustle of city life. You can be driving and it looks like you are in the country, but a few miles down the road there are shops, restaurants, and grocery stores. It is surrounded by many beautiful lakes so outdoor activities are big during the summer. I also like that it is so diverse. There are many different cultures and backgrounds in every neighborhood. Although there are many diverse cultures, everyone has a great sense of community and is very friendly. Overall, I think West Bloomfield is a great place to live!
I moved to West Bloomfield when I was 12. I immediately noticed a change from my old neighborhood, Southfield. There's a lot of diversity here that I appreciate. I feel like being surrounded by different people of a variety f ethnicities and cultural backgrounds at a young age has made me more aware of someone's uniqueness and environment. Another thing I like about West Bloomfield are the schools here. They are great and you can tell the staff and teachers really care about the students' education.
