Bloomfield R-14 Middle School, located in southeast Missouri and is a small school with a big heart. We are dedicated to a simple blueprint. Every student deserves high quality instruction, community relationships, and leadership development. Our school promotes student success by using researched-based practices to help every student reach their potential. Specialized instruction and targeting student strengths are delivered in a multi-tiered format. Students are immersed in technology enhanced, Project-Based learning. Project-Based learning gives diverse learners opportunities to be successful. You can see this in our Robotics, Medical Detective, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) classes.

Staff members are always building partnerships with students. This is why we developed a positive behavior program to support student efficacy called Phantom Friday. With this program, staff members guide students in making positive life choices. During our Phantom Friday, students participate in self-selected activities or participate in our Prank the Principal, where you might see our principal duct taped to a wall. Students have become empowered by making these positive behavior choices, and that transcends to all aspects of their lives. Bloomfield R-14 Middle School students and staff grow together putting learning as the ultimate goal. Together we cultivate a better future for our students, parents, and community.
