This is our first year at Field. We just moved to the area from out of state and I did a lot of research before choosing this school (and then moving into a house in the zone). And I have been beyond thrilled with the school. The teachers are amazing. The staff is super friendly, and my kids have learned so much! My 2 girls (4th and 2nd) made friends quickly and easily. I spent a lot of time in the classroom and the teachers were kind and had control of the kids at all times. The units of study were impressive. I love that it is an IB school and they are learning the Spanish language and culture. My girls have been involved in extra activities (chorus, girls on the run, student council, Good news club), and have loved every minute of it. I am just so thrilled with this school. We loved our old school (in another state), but Field has impressed me even more than that school. I really just can't say enough good things about this school.
Not quite the school I was expecting, and yes bullying seems to be a common theme. We have had some great, some okay teachers. We have been to another school in the district and this one does seem to cater to whomever is writing the biggest checks, allowing improper behavior to go unchecked to those at the top of the socioeconomic spectrum. Other than the IB title, I believe the other school did a better job of keeping behavior issues at a minimum. When kids do not feel playground games are respectably played or safe, and that the teachers simply do not care, learning falls short. And, as the parent below suggested , it does seem rather closed environment. There is definitely ALOT of room for improvement ! I am not sure an 8 is an appropriate grade for this school. You do hear alot about the bullying at every event you attend. It is too bad.
I don't know how this school hasn't gotten a review yet... This is probably the best school in Springfield for young children. Our daughter is in kindergarten here and is learning how to speak spanish, give presentations, and many other things that I remember learning in high school!
