Teachers and staff are great. I can see the benefits of Pershing school, my daughter is learning and maturing.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
They stay after school to help studebts. They give students extra time, and a reasonable amount of time to get things done.


Amount of homework: no rating


- a parent
Its hard to say. Really depends on the subject. Such as, social studies, they cover a lot of work, yet they learn so much.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a parent
They look into the situation before a decision is made. They will gett to the bottom of the situation regardless of what efforts and hoops they have to jump through.

Never in my life have I knew of a school that the students came first. My boys that are in 6th and 7th were dealing with personal issues. The school excused their work for that time they missed. They even were so incredibly compassionate I was highly impressed. The councilors are superior, when they say if you need anything please let us know, and they mean it. There was an issue that my son was facing. Mr. Groves handled the situation professionally and got to the bottom of it. It was my sons fault but I am thankful even though it was my sons fault Mr. Groves handled it the right way. The teachers are there for the students, not themselves. We have always supported the teachers (instead of playing the my kid could do not wrong game.) Im impressed with this school. The office staff is always promt they deal with a lot. We have lived in other Springfield school districts and Pershing ranks superior. A Remarkably well rounded school.

We moved to Springfield from Nixa after being somewhat brainwashed that Nixa schools were the best. The kids are very snobby in Nixa, but seem very grounded in Springfield. Our son has thrived at Pershing. He is nearly a straight A student and has made good friends. His teachers are wonderful and really seem to care about him as a person. The principal and asst principal are excellent. So far, we are very impressed with Pershing.

This school is seriously lacking in important areas but far exceeds In other areas. The best band in Springfield by far. They have an amazing band. There are some good Sports activities offered but at a price. You have to pay for a lot Of things. The teachers are crabby, and act like they don't really like Their jobs. Bullying, fighting, drugs, sex and clicks are in full force here and The authorities make many visits to this school. they even have a school officer on premises but it helps little. Do yourself a favor and go to private school or the surrounding schools outside of town.

Pershing is a wonderful school that has great teachers! They also have one of the best orchestra programs in the state.
