Being an alumnus of SHS this school has a long standing tradition of excellence not just to academia, but also to their global neighborhood. In my graduating class alone we had over twenty students join the military,and of those two were accepted at West Point, one at Colorado Springs, and another one at Annapolis. The administration stopped at nothing to ensure the safety of us and our continued education. While I was there I saw the school expanded to see the new science wing, which was a very good thing for us. As for security we had four roving guards and three uniformed Springfield Police Officers. At any rate I know that SHS is eons ahead of SSHS and LHS.

SHS is an excellent school for so many reasons: dedicated and caring staff, spirited students, numerous clubs, and a great principal. I think the security is excellent too. It's definitely the best high school in town!

This school is very poor in every aspect imaginable. The safety and dicsipline is a joke. The 'security' they have you hardly see patroling the halls to make sure the students are safe. I give this school a -0

Springfield HS is located in the heart of the Capital city. It is one of three public High schools in the city, and in my opinion the best of the three. Springfield HS has a long history of testing well in the math and science portions of the state achievement tests. Springfield HS offers your students most extra curricular activities your teen may want to participate in, including sports, drama, foreign language clubs, key club, and many more. The level of involvement of parents at this school is better than average.
