New students are always welcome at Metacomet school. We invite parents to come and see our classrooms, and how we utilize technology and effective teaching strategies along with the common core curriculum standards to provide students with the foundations they need to continue on to 5th grade, and college and career readiness.

The Bloomfield Public Schools mission statement to become a "high-performing district with a positive climate of inclusion, an expectation of competitive academic achievement and a culture of meaningful parent and community engagement" rings true at Metacomet school, where we invite all students to take part in both academic and nonacademic activities to gain the best education possible and to not only live up to expectations, but to exceed them.

Bloomfield Public Schools Theory of Action: The Bloomfield Schools will successfully implement a comprehensive and collaborative accountability system characterized by data-supported planning and decision-making practices at every level, leading to adult work that will be strengthened throughout the district. As a result, learning for all students will substantially improve and be sustained over time.
