Since opening in 2017, Bloom360 has served Learners from many southeastern Wisconsin communities who benefit from a school environment that meets their social and emotional health, sensory and academic needs. Each year Learners advance an average of 15% toward their individualized goals with the support of experienced Learning Guides, occupational therapists, a music therapist, special education teacher and a social worker. The school has earned recognition from nationally known child psychologists as well as statewide in the Force for Positive Change program sponsored by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation and Marquette University.

Recently, Bloom360 Learners responded to the question: What is your favorite thing about Bloom?

Responses included: We are all different; My friends and We work together

And, when asked, “What is one thing you wish you did better?” one Learner responded: I wish I could change the world into a better place. I could do better to stand up for myself for what is right, I am good at that.

The school offers ongoing admission throughout the school year in its Day School and part-time Roots Program. For more information about Bloom360 Learning Community, visit:
