Springfield Plains Elementary is a school that has fully embraced Ron Ritchhart ' s Cultures of Thinking approach. We have created a school community where all thinking is valued. We teach for understanding and strive to make connections within all areas of our curriculum. We are blessed to have strong co-curricular programs that include art, music, physical education, and information literacy. Clarkston Community Schools and SPE are committed to teaching and caring for the whole child. We have a strong PTA that fully supports our staff and students. Springfield Plains is a wonderful place for children to learn, grow, and thrive.

I am not happy with my child's teacher this year at all. She is very unorganized and her classroom is chaotic. I am not the only parent that feels this way, the overloaded class size was a very bad idea. It's very rare that she communicates with parents unless it's an newsletter that's not consistent that we don't receive often. Her website is not running with what the children are learning in class and it takes a long time to receive a reply when I email her. At parents/teacher conference's she told me she never posts things on her website. I understand that she is busy and has many students but my confidence with this school is beyond low. Our children should have proactive teachers with the reputation of Clarkston and being a blue ribbon school. The school has high standards but my daughter's classroom does not meet such criteria. And I am not the only parent that is very disappointed with this teacher, the classroom size, all of the chaos and the teacher's capability of controlling her classroom.

Great PTA sponsored programs, a challenging curriculum that serves each student's needs, and a staff that is supportive and helpful to children and parents alike.

I am so pleased with Springfield Plains Elementary. All of the staff is so wonderfull. The custodians keep the school so nice and clean for the students and teachers. Everyone makes you feel like you are welcome and you matter. I can tell that everyone has respect for one another, that is important for my child to see everyday when he goes to school. Miss McDonald has been a great teacher, she has made learning fun for my son. Thank you.

Springfield Plains is a fabulous elementary. The teachers are very involved and all aspects of learning are coordinated with a common theme - from music and art to science and reading. The principal knows all of the children by name and is open to discussing any issues with parents.
