    I certainly enjoyed attending this school. All of my former teachers were kind and helpful. They all know you personally make you feel comfortable in school. I probably remember more from my education here than from high school. The art program is great and gym is fun because it has a high school-sized gymnasium. The school is quite updated with it's technology too. All computers have been replaced with new ones in the past three years. The library has a professional atmosphere and is equipped with a couple dozen computers a large plasma and web cams. Don't be deceived from the outside the inside is clean modern and overall a nice interior. Several classrooms administrator offices band room and library are also cooled by central air conditioning. I hope Bloomingdale takes pride in their middle school. I hope future students enjoy their time here. )
