We have been very happy with Bloomfield High School. My daughter has had good teachers and has excelled in her honors and AP classes. It's not a perfect school, but what is? I'd recommend the school based on our experience.

The principal is just awful, doesn't deal with the issues, instead gives out lengthy suspensions knowing it will only harm the students.

Clearly the High School has much room for improvement based on this profile.The VEST program needs a major overhaul. Special Education students are not sufficiently supported, understood or respected.Parents need to mobilize and rally around those trying to make a change.
