Three Bloomfield entities – the Bloomfield Public Schools, the Bloomfield Department of Recreation, and Bloomfield College – have partnered to create positive effects for Bloomfield students. The partners created positive learning environments, shared professional collaboration and classroom learning space. The collaboration helps each student, pre-K through high school, achieve success in an individualized program. Local businesses have also joined forces to create real-life work experiences for high school students. Along with work experience, students gain lessons in responsibility, work ethic and giving back to the community.
