    Bloom Elementary My child has gone there since Kindergarten and is now in the 4th grade. I do not believe just because a full time parent that works their child is treated a certain way and not getting a good education. I work full time and I am very involved with my child her school and with her teacher I think it's very important to put forth the effort if you don't do that then of course you would blame the staff for the fact of you being lazy. My child loves that school and every teacher she has had the staff has been great and my husband and I have no COMPLAINTS about the school and the staff. Great job Bloom!

    My kid attended 3 years here and in general we were not happy. Eventually I had to transfer him out and feel so bad that I did not do it before. The teachers that he had were not nice they had no patience and screamed at the kids. My kid told me that his teacher would use the computer all the time and that when kids had questions she was not able to get to them. That his teacher had favorites and pick on others. Unfortunately he told me this after we moved. At times it felt like a mental hospital not a school. By word of mouth there are some nice teachers but those are hard to request. I tried to request one and was denied . By talking to other parents the able program is very good but after that be very careful and volunteer if possible or just go to another school. They also need more monitors out in the field not enough. I remember that the office people and the principal were very nice.

    My son is currently in the 1st grade. He LOVED kindergarten and he enjoys 1st grade as well. The teachers my son has had are wonderful and they have kept the parents involved and informed. The Principal truely cares about the school and making it a better environment for the children.

    We have been very happy with the education our child is receiving. There is an emphasis on reading and writing ... but to balance the academic focus there is also a lot of opportunities for the kids to be physically active which my son loves. The staff has been more than helpful and is very dedicated to providing the best education for our kids.

    My son attended the school from Kinder to 2nd. The kinder teacher was wonderful but once they move up it gets worse. I would not recommend sending you child here. If you are a parent who works & does not have time to volunteer it shows on how your child is treated.

    My son is in the Preschool Project ABLE class with Ms. Debby Eisen. She is a great teacher and my son loves attending classes! I would recommend her classroom to parents with children who need extra help with speech/language occupational and/or physical therapy skills.

    Teacher quality is declining rapidly. The test scores over the last few years confim this. Not much cooperation between teachers.

    Quality of academic programs Not bad overall but a little bit 'touchy feely'. Should be more rigorous on basics. Forget science projects that the parents end up doing for their kids. Concentrate on math writing Spanish. Availability of music art sports and other extracurricular activities OK...kids seem satisfied. Level of parent involvement They try very hard to get the parents involved.

    We are fairly new to this community. I have been very happy with Bloom and the teachers. The teachers have been great with my son and so far he has received a good education.
