From the Principal

Dear Students, Parents/Guardians and Visitors,
Thank you for visiting the Springfield Middle School website.  We are very proud of the staff, students and facility.  We have a comprehensive program in place where young adolescents can succeed and thrive.  Students are our focus and we are very proud to claim one of the best student bodies in the nation.  It is our hope that our students will be academically challenged and that all students are involved in at least one school activity.  I enjoy relaying the message to our students that a happy student is an involved student.
We want our school to be an inviting school where parents, the community, and visitors feel welcome.  It does take a large number of people to educate our students and we want this community of stakeholders to be a part of our school.  Please visit with us and I believe that you will feel the warmth when you walk in the front door.  Your opinion of our school will only make us more inviting.  Please let us know about your visit and/or your experience with Springfield Middle School.
Springfield Middle School is a great place for students to learn and begin the journey to adulthood.  We are proud to be in the middle of the scholastic years of young people.  We will work to provide the best education and transition into high school.  We embrace the middle school philosophy because we believe that it is best for our students. We are teaming in each grade level for our academic subjects (Math, Science, Language Arts, and Social Studies).
Thanks for visiting our website.  If you have questions, please call, email, or write.  We welcome your comments, suggestions, and questions.  Thanks for caring about public education and your student.  We know that you would not have visited this site if that were not true.
