Bloomfield High School: A step below average -competitive standards needed
It is interesting to see that the district spends almost $14,000 per student and yet the end results are disappointing: less than 53% of the seniors go on to four year colleges, SAT scores are among the lowest in the county ( only Newark, Orange and East Orange had lower average scores), state test scores lag behind state averages and the world languages offers are out of date --- no Chinese, no Japanese and or Arabic. In addition, the school does not report the graduation plans of all students ( only post the top 100 out of graduating classes of over 350--- are they hiding the fact that many are not going to college or at least career schools?). The behavior of the student body has improved greatly (especially at graduation and the walk down Belleville Ave.). There is room for much more improvement at BHS and the work needs to be done quickly if BHS is to rise above the level of " below average". By the way, lets stop putting almost everyone on the honor roll each marking quarter and make the school competitive in terms of academic standards.
