The school is great academically. my daughter has been going here since kindergarten in 2005 and is now in the fourth grade. it does not have a gymnasium howebver and there is no art or music either. They focus so hard on theai academics I feel the children get bored with the learning.there is not very much parental involvement either and the pto lacks an active committee, they do not go on field trips either, however they seem to be doing fanatastic on their mcas
Great teachers. I have noticed however, that the environment is very penile. There are a lot of suspensions for kids there for what I consider minor offenses. But in general, Springfield schools have a 'jail' feel to them, in my humble opinion.
