Bloomingdale High School is a public high school located in Valrico, Florida.[1] Bloomingdale was established in 1987, three years after Gaither High School, and has its same architectural design. Bloomingdale's first graduating class graduated in 1989, since Hillborough County does not pull seniors from existing schools for new schools. The current principal is Mrs. Susan Burkett. The football stadium is named for the first principal, Charley Harris. The school colors are red and white with black trim.

Athletics[edit]

Sports offered include: golf, football, soccer, baseball, softball, wrestling, basketball, volleyball, swimming, flag football, cross country, and track and field. Additionally, there are club teams for: ice hockey, lacrosse, and bowling. Boys' sports teams are called the Bloomingdale Bulls, and girls' sports teams are called the Bloomingdale Lady Bulls.

The boys' soccer team won state championships in '93, '95, and '98.[citation needed]

The girl's soccer team won a state title in 2001.[2]

The cheerleading squad won state champions in 2008 and 2009.[2]
