Welcome to the Bloomfield Central School District!
The Bloomfield Central School District serves residents in the towns of East Bloomfield, West Bloomfield, Bristol, Canandaigua, Richmond, and Victor. The district is comprised of two buildings. The Bloomfield Elementary School serves students from universal pre-K to grade 5, and our Middle/High School which serves students grades 6-12. Our population of approximately 940 students is educated by a caring, knowledgeable and dedicated faculty and staff. The district’s mission is to “Provide the foundation for each student's future success in the world community”. Our District and Building Targets highlight the importance we place on Believing in each child, Challenging each child and preparing each child for Success.
Students at our high school are able to access a wide variety of academic and extracurricular opportunities. Bloomfield offers many college credit bearing course offerings, including AP courses and also offers students the opportunity to participate in the International Baccalaureate Program. Students can choose to participate in our strong music program through a variety of extracurricular offerings such as band, jazz band, marching band, chorus, jazz ensemble and drama productions. The district also has numerous interscholastic opportunities for students, these include soccer, volleyball, basketball, track, and field, bowling, baseball, softball, and tennis. In addition to involvement in music and athletics, our students are also very involved in serving our community as well as the serving others in the region and others overseas.
Students at our elementary school are taught in an environment in which they are encouraged to actively explore the world around them. Our elementary school offers the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) for children aged 3 – 12. The goal of the Primary Years Programme is to nurture and develop young students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning. In addition to PYP a strong emphasis is placed on character development and citizenship through our Five Star program. The elementary faculty and staff seek to ensure that all students are in a safe and caring environment that both encourages academic growth and fosters independence. The elementary school was recently recognized for their efforts and named as a top school in the Beating the Odds, Building Opportunities research study.
The Bloomfield School District recognizes the importance access to technology plays in preparing our students to be contributing, globally aware citizens in today’s world. As a result, the district provides all students with access to a wide variety of digital tools and content, which are used as part of the daily teaching and learning process. Wireless access throughout the district allows students to efficiently connect their devices on each of our school's campuses. Emphasis on digital content that supports curriculum and enables students to access leveled instructional materials is evident at all grade levels.
The District also boasts a strong working partnership with the community and area businesses/agencies. Educational programs and student opportunities are provided as a result of the strong community partnerships. Our location, just 10 miles from the city of Canandaigua and 15 miles from Rochester, affords residents an easy commute to major employers in the area which includes: Kodak, Xerox, Bausch and Lomb, Frontier, Crossman Air Guns, and Terphane. In addition, a number of colleges and universities are located nearby. While our location provides easy access to the city and all city life has to offer, the community of Bloomfield provides residents a “small town feel” in a supportive, tight-knit community that takes great pride in its school district, students and community.
I invite you to visit Bloomfield and our schools to see first-hand what a special district we have.
