What Makes Us Special

Bloom knows the importance of literacy and bi-literacy. We want our students to be successful in tomorrow’s job markets. Bilingual skills are highly valued in the workplace, and the key to being bilingual is starting early. Bloom now offers a Spanish Immersion classes in Kindergarten through 2nd grade.  In the fall of 2019, we will expand by adding one 3rd grade Dual Language class and continue expanding by adding 4th and 5th grade Dual Language classes in the years 2021 and 2022 respectively.

Bloom Elementary has a strong focus on reading and writing through all subjects. The school uses the Daily 5 reading approach, which helps children develop reading stamina. The program allows for small-group instruction and individualized instruction.

Bloom uses the Engage NY/Eureka Math curriculum, which develops the habit of mind that mathematics is a tool to be used to solve many different types of problems. Bloom also works to help children build character, focusing on three areas: behavior, self-reflection and setting academic and personal goals.

TWDL (Two Way Dual Language)

In August 2016, TUSD established its first Dual Language Immersion Program for the parents/families of the TUSD community. Bloom Elementary School was chosen as the eastside location and was designed to provide students with high levels of language proficiency, academic achievement, bi-literacy, and cross-­cultural understanding.

It uses Spanish and English as the languages of instruction for both Spanish-speaking students who need to develop English fluency, as well as English-speaking students who will acquire Spanish as a second language.

The first cohort of students started as Kindergartners in 2016-2017.  The program will continue to expand at this site until the students complete their 5th grade year and continue on the TWDL pathway through middle school and high school. At graduation, they will receive the Arizona Seal of Biliteracy.
