From the Principal

Springfield School serves approximately 400 pre-kindergarten through sixth grade students.  Our school community focuses on providing a safe and nurturing environment that encourages life-long learning while providing a challenging education.  Students are guided to develop positive social skills to encourage their growth as productive and responsible citizens.  The teachers at Springfield are dedicated professionals who work hard to ensure a positive and supportive environment for every student.  We strive to develop a partnership with our families to ensure the best education for our students.
