Choice Program

Nestled in northwestern Hunterdon County, Bloomsbury School District houses 107 students in grades pre-k through eight. The district prides itself on a “Small School, Big Family” approach with dedicated teachers, school board, PTO, parents, and community working together to ensure that students achieve their full academic potential and develop into lifelong learners through the use of combining proven, effective, traditional, best practices with research-based, emerging methodologies. 

Consistently meeting and exceeding district and state academic expectations, the district also focuses on core values interwoven with academic excellence. Our students are guaranteed small class sizes with a full offering of supplementary subjects, clubs, and opportunities such as 1:1 technology ratio, Mandarin Club, STEAM, Coding, visual and performing arts, Peer2Peer, Student Council, Geocaching, Drama Club, Academic Sessions, and many more. 

We pride ourselves with being one of the first schools to pilot the New Jersey School Choice program in 2001, and offering students from all areas an exceptional education. Most of all, the district leads with kindness because with that, all great things will follow.

 

Choice Seats Availability

The purpose of the chart below is to inform parents of choice seat availability before the application deadline in early December. After the deadline, the information will be outdated.

The Department of Education limits the number of choice seats that each district can fill. The “maximum number of new choice students that can be enrolled” tells parents how many new choice students the district can enroll in the next school year. If more than the maximum number of applications is received, a lottery will be held and a waitlist will be developed. Waitlists will be developed for all approved choice grades even if no seats are currently available. NA indicates the district is not accepting choice applications for those grades.

Maximum Number of New Choice Students that can be Enrolled: 4

District Choice Policies

Indicate Yes/No/NA 

The district accepts Tier 2 students (see definitions of Tier 1 and Tier 2 ).

 Yes

The district gives enrollment preference to choice applicants who have a sibling currently attending the choice district, provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria.

 Yes

The district gives enrollment preference to choice applicants who have completed the terminal grade of the sending district (i.e., students who attend a choice district with grades that terminate before 12th grade and have a natural progression to this choice district), provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria.

 N/A

The district gives enrollment preference to resident students who move before the application deadline. If resident students move and file choice applications for the following year prior to the deadline, the district will give them enrollment preference (i.e., accept them after the enrollment preference students described in b. and c. above, but ahead of other applicants), provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria. If the district has already reached its approved choice enrollment maximum, this preference will not apply.

 Yes

The district gives special consideration to resident students who move after the application deadline. Students in this situation may apply as late applicants and be added to the front of the district’s waitlist, provided the students will enroll in a choice-approved grade/program and they meet any program-specific criteria. No additional choice seats above the maximum will be approved by the NJDOE to accommodate these students.

 Yes
