I have recently graduated from this school and to say I have done so does not make me feel significant, but to say that I have done so and have left an important image for people there to remember makes me proud. I have left behind new clubs and activities for future generations to hopefully continue. This school has always lacked in extracurricular activities and the only activities for students to participate in are basically sports. If you're not the jock kind of guy, you have a rare number of clubs or organizations to attend. I would encourage students who want a new club or sport for this school to create their group, show support and talk to the principal and staff about it so that they know people care and will continue the activity. Parents who want their students to have a perspective of a good education (with Honors and AP) and some experience in the work field (CTE options are the Building Trades for people interested in construction or working on infrastructure, the Arts for students interested in the media, drawing and video production, Business for students interested in accounting, management, and more, and then there's the more recent Green Energy Academy).

As a involved parent of this school, I think it is a wonderful school, academically. Yes, it is a tech school and they just need to offer more to the college bound students. Times are changing. The Vice Principal is a wonderful asset warm and caring. The Principal could be more warmer to parents, but I guess we all have our own ways.

Bloomfield Tech is a good high school that has all the qualities that a high school should have in this country. Bloomfield has great teachers that take their time making sure all their students learn the concept each day. The principal is an ok guy who cares about the school as much as the students and the teachers. The security is a must each day in school and safety for all is ensure. The only problem with the school is the activities for students to enjoy which is hard to come by. I'm starting my second year at Bloomfield and I believe that its a excellent school for parents to check into. Interview and Test is require the apply for the school.

I attend this school currently. and it seems to be a good school. but the onky thing is is that it lacks extra curricular activities. this year would be my 4th year there and ive kind of enjoyed myself so far. we'll just wait till school comes bac to see what happens this year. Principal Love seems to handle things really well. There is good security in this school, we rarely have any problems or fights. If youre thinking about sending your child here, dont hesitate, especially if you dont really care for extra curricular activities.
