Bloom Community School Open House for Academic Year 2020-2021
Bloom Community School focuses on building 21st-century skills: Critical Thinking. Collaboration. Communication. Creativity. Choice. Caring.
Bloom's innovative teachers engage students in inquiry-based learning processes as part of each day's structure that also includes a focus on literacy, mathematical thinking as well as strategies, outdoor exploration, an emphasis on social-emotional intelligence, and everyday responsibilities and problem-solving. Rather than relying on grades to understand learning, our teachers get to know students through multiple lenses in order to challenge and support them across subjects and personal growth goals.
As Bloomington-Normal's only progressive, independent school, Bloom serves families who are committed to quality educational experiences designed by experienced, caring, globally minded teachers. We warmly welcome families to visit on Sunday, March 1, from 2-4 p.m. in considering enrollment for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Join us at our welcoming school in Normandy Village, Normal, Illinois to meet teachers and board members and to learn more about how Bloom's approach, small class sizes, and teacher commitment impacts day to day experiences for our students. See our daily schedules that provide structured support for students as they grow in 21st-century skills: understanding the learning process; building confidence in and beyond core content areas; deepening their understanding of themselves and others; building community among their schoolmates as well as the greater Bloomington-Normal area; and joyfully embracing their learning.
When visiting Bloom at an open house, one parent - whose daughter and son attend Bloom - said, "It was like walking into my child's brain!"
Open enrollment for new students begins March 1.
