After two years there I am satisfied with the education my son has received (and he has a 504). There are some improvements I would like to see but I can't say that I think my child would be any better educated at any other middle school in the area.

Bloomfield Middle school does not even deserve a one star. This school is horrible. My son was bullied all the time and the stuff knew it was happening and they would just look the other way. My child is a special needs child that never learned anything from this school did not get the services he needed. It does not do any good to go to the principal because he does not care. Since my son has attented this school he has really bad anxiety and depression. I personal can't stand this school.

I am so pleased with BMS, I couldn't be happier with the team of teachers that Spalding has as well as him being the best principal a school could ever ask for!!!

Curriculun is more focus to female students learning skills, not boys. Somewhat haphazard in who they enforce out of dress code rules on. Parents must become involved when 504 plans are at issue for ADD or ADHD issues are involved. basically - go fight for your sons education. Girls - Title 7 works great here.

I can't wait for my child to graduate out of this school and move on to high school. We have never had problems at any school until she attended here! My child has ADD and does not receive the support she needs.

My kids went to Bardstown through elementary school. I am so glad I transferred them for middle school. Bloomfield Middle is an awesome school with an awesome staff.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky used the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and mathematics, 4 and 7 in science, 5 and 8 in social studies, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 11 in writing, and 4, 6, and 10 in language mechanics. The K-PREP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky.

About the tests


Until 2010-2011, Kentucky used the Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT) to assess students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 through 12 in reading, social studies, science, writing, and math. The Elementary School results displayed on GreatSchools profiles are for grades 3 through 5 combined for each subject. Middle School results are for grades 6 though 8 combined, and High School results are for grades 10 though 12 combined. The KCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky. Beginning in 2011-2012, Kentucky switched to the K-PREP and EOC exams.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2012-2013, Kentucky administered the End-of-Course (EOC) assessments. EOCs are tests given to public high school students when they complete a course to assess their knowledge of important course concepts. They are similar to a final exam, except that they are created and scored by an outside testing company, ensuring that the tests are both rigorous and aligned with state and national college readiness standards.
