The school itself is, i suppose, good, but it lacks languages and club activities. The only languages available are Latin, Spanish, Frech, and Italian. In the future, our generation will need to know Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and definitely Arabic. This does disappoint me, being forced to take languages ...  Read more

I have a child that just graduated at the top 5% of her class and has gone on to a wonderful college with a full academic scholarship. I also have a son, who is a sophomore and also is in the top of his class. I can't say enough about the teachers at BHS. They have gone above and beyond. Their dedication ...  Read more

I'm sorry but what good is left in the Bloomfield School system is being far outweighed by the crime and behavior of the students.
