Superintendent's Office

thompson  Dear Families, Students, Staff and Community Members,

I am excited to welcome new and returning students to Bloomfield Public Schools for their first day of school on August 30, 2017.

Our district has much to celebrate due to the focused effort of our community. Here are few of our recent accomplishments:

  • Bloomfield High School ranked in the top 10% of CT high schools, #36 overall, in the 2017 U.S. News & World Report’s “Best High Schools in CT”.
  • District enrollment is up 4% in 2016, the highest increase in a decade.
  • High school graduation rates are up, including 100% at the award-winning Global Experience Magnet School. The Bloomfield High School graduation rate increased from 74% in 2011 to 91% in 2016.

These accomplishments are guided by the successful implementation of our District Accountability Plan. This blueprint for excellence provides us with the vision, theory of action and priorities that are based on the community’s shared beliefs. 

This year, we will continue striving for excellence. We encourage you to read our 2015-2018 District Accountability Plan and learn more about how we are improving our teaching and learning strategies to have a significant impact on Bloomfield’s children. We are extremely encouraged about the ongoing work in the classrooms.

I would also like to acknowledge the continued support of our parents, community and staff.  Successful organizations are ones that work together to achieve a common set of beliefs and goals. We appreciate that you share in our common purpose: to prepare our students for college and meaningful careers. It is the vision of our district that all students meet new and more challenging expectations for learning. 

In this school year, we will continue our pursuit of excellence, by raising the bar on expectations at each of our schools. I look forward to another great year!


James Thompson, Jr., Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
