I am moving to Bloomington this summer and visited just a few days ago. The biggest factor for us in picking the part of town we want to live is the school district since we have a son going into first grade. We found it difficult to get anyone to say which schools they thought were good. We visited University Elementary and like the teachers, atmosphere and the diversity. I'm leaning toward that school but don't know for sure. Which school would you want your child to go to?

These days school is so important and you are a wonderful parent making sure your child gets a good education.

You can look up all of the schools and see how they test on their ISTEP. I grew up in Bloomington and did fine at Grandview many years ago, but times have changed.

Everyone will have their own personal thoughts about school, but numbers do not lie. Go to the internet and research, or request this info at the school. If the school will not share, move on. Also, take a good look at the high school scores since this is the school that will be the main key to college. This way you will know what school district to live in. Best of luck and welcome to Bloomington.

Your kid probably won't take a week-long field trip in the first Grade but would You let Your kid go to a School that decided Hotels for week-long, yearly Field Trips, based on if a School faculty member's relative could get a contractors bid with the Hotel owner, because they worked out a deal with the owner prior to visiting and the Hotel and maybe the Hotel rooms were only like $5 dollars more then some groups of that size pay?

And possibly some jobs and money come back locally.

For future references are You okay with that?
