Welcome to the West Bloomfield School District! Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of Team WB.
The West Bloomfield School District serves over 5,500 students from West Bloomfield Township and the cities of Orchard Lake Village, Keego Harbor, and Sylvan Lake. Our schools have received state and national awards; all have been named National Exemplary Schools. West Bloomfield was listed by CNN Money Magazine as #37 in its Top 100 Small Cities in America, citing excellent schools, lakefront living, and cultural diversity.
Our District mission is to educate students to be their best IN and FOR the world. We accomplish this through a well rounded curriculum and a wide-variety of opportunities outside of the classroom. We cannot wait to meet you!
