After finishing my first year at BHS, I have to say that it was an okay experience. The clubs at BHS were probably the best part about the school and teachers were really dedicated leading them, as they are in classes too. Marching band is also a great place that seriously teaches discipline and takes ...  Read more

School Faculty encourages preferential treatment to jocks and kids on the "east side" of town. Several complaints are made to staff and they go unheard from administrations.

After 9 years as BHS parents, we will watch our last graduation in a couple of weeks. This is a wonderfully well-rounded environment for any high school student. BHS offers the most honors/advanced placement classes around, in addition to the fabulous Area Vocational Center. By far the best Real World ...  Read more

School's out at 2:15. Drive by the parking lot at 4pm and even later and count the cars in the teachers's parking lot. I am very impressed by the dedication of BHS teachers and the time that they spend with their students. The music, theatre, and art programs, the academics, and the sports programs ...  Read more

Bloomington HS is not a 7 by all means. I am not happy with some of the teachers and their way of dealing with students.

Posted by a parent on 09/10/07

I was surprised to see that BHS ranked a 7 from Great Schools. I have 2 children in BHS & 2 in BJHS our experience has been a disappointment. My Junior has good grades and excells in academic courses many AP without teacher input. My kids have been left with the feeling most of the teachers are waiting ...  Read more

The diversity here is a strength and I'm proud to know my child attends a school with a mixed student population. The student body are proud to be Purple Raiders and you would ...  Read more
