Bloomingdale High School

Bloomingdale High School is a public high school located in Valrico, Florida.[4] Bloomingdale was established in 1987, three years after Gaither High School, and has its same architectural design. Bloomingdale's first graduating class was in 1989, since Hillborough County does not pull seniors from existing schools for new schools. The current principal is Susan Burkett. The football stadium is named for the first principal, Charley Harris. The school colors are red and white with black trim.
