Bloomington High School Ratings & Reviews

February 29, 2016 Submitted by a parent
Don't just look at the number rating, you have to look much deeper. Bloomington High School has more AP courses than any other B/N school, including University High. Not only that, it has more AP courses than many top rated flagship high schools in big cities: Portland OR, Minneapolis MN, Wheaton IL,.... It is the only high school for all of Bloomington so it serves every population, but it doesn't forget about high capability students while working to provide every assistance for disadvantaged students. District 87 is a traditional student focused district. There are bad stories about Unit 5 - giving a teacher accused of abuse a glowing rating to pass him on to another district, teaching the test, hushing up violent incidents. BHS looks ugly on paper, but it's the best school in town for a well rounded young adult.

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 place mostly in the summer for instrument players, and color guard. Many students do not do all that well at this school but that is pretty much because of their apathy, and if you at least try to do your work, you will probably get a good grade. I feel that the honors classes have students wanting to do well in school, but in the other classes students are just incredibly indifferent. The jocks do receive somewhat special treatment, not a lot, but are bound to get good recommendations from teachers. The teachers are nice, and understanding. But if people have trouble with a teacher, or with anything in general, and a student tries to form a complaint to their counselors, most likely it will go unheard by them. Overall, it's a nice school, disregarding the apathy from students.

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 experience in the area!!!!!

My son is a senior at BHS and is graduating with 8 Advanced Placement courses that he'll receive college credit for. His teachers are always accessible before and after school. The math and science teachers have challenged him and I thank them for that. The extra curricular clubs and activities such as the WYSE team, Envirothon Team, Math Team, and Scholastic Bowl team are very successful in regional and state competitions. Students from my son's class are attending MIT, Brown University, University of Illinois, Harvard, Arizona State, Princeton, and many other top notch schools. You don't get in these schools without a good academic preparation. BHS gives that to students. Students regularly come back to let their teachers know how well-prepared they were for college because of the classes that they took at BHS! How can anyone rate this school less than 5 stars?
