I had a wonderful experience at Bloomingdale. The school spirit here is incredible as well as the general support of all pursuits ranging from special Olympics to football. No school has perfect teachers, but I can genuinely say most teachers I had (taking almost all honors and AP) were good. Especially love the social studies department. The administration is generally good, especially the principle. Academics, as long as the student puts in effort, are great. I left with enough AP credit to fill a full year of college, saving time and money. My graduating class had many top public university goers as well as Ivy League and military academy.
Awesome principle who really cares about the students and staff. Teachers really care about their students and their success. Students here do have have to pass there classes to graduate. If anyone tells you this is not a good school they have not worked there or had a child there since Ms. Burkett took over. .
Students do not have to do their homework in order to graduate from this school. This school should be shut down and anyone who has graduated from this school should be stripped of their worthless high school diploma unless they can prove through testing that they have the knowledge and skills necessary to have truly earned the diploma.
This school permits students to receive their high school diploma, even if the student completely fails their entire senior year of school. I personally know of more than a dozen students who were aware of this so they did not even show up for class during their senior year. They just showed up on graduation day to receive their worthless diploma.
This is a miserable excuse for a school. I personally know of a high number of students who failed their entire senior year at Bloomingdale High School in Valrico, Florida who still received a high school diploma. One of these individuals cannot even write his name legibly.
I asked a teacher at Bloomingdale high school as to why the school allows students to receive a high school diploma who fail their entire senior year and all the teacher told me, was, "It is sad as to how lax we are now.". Many students are aware that they do not even have to show up for school throughout their entire senior year and still receive their high school diploma, so they don't go. Although they tell their parents that they do.
I have visited Bloomingdale high school on a number of occassions and the school is just sheer garbage. No wonder why Florida has the worst reputation in the entire U.S. for their schools, including those of higher education. Florida is such a joke on so many levels, that one would think they would work on trying to shed this reputation, but instead they studiously live up to it. A bunch of dumasses.
