Prospective Families

Welcome to the West Bloomfield School District! Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of Team WB. 

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've experienced an unparalleled amount of success when it came to transitioning our in-person instruction to our Cloud Learning Initiative.  This success would not have been possible without the relationships developed between the staff and students of our district.
