Springfield Public School District Reviews

I love district 186 because you have the opportunity to grow up in it and develop a sense of local pride. While the schools in the district compete against each other all the pride and love for our district is still there. At our annual city tournament all the district high schools chant "186" together and I always get a warm feeling from it. Since it is all public schooling, education is at little costs and is the same for everyone no matter their family income. Along with this, breakfast and lunch are both free to every student. This significantly helps students and their families who cannot afford it. Things I would like to see change are more social workers in the schools because I know a lot of students would benefit. I would also love to see better athletics programs because it is important to have good athletic programs for students to escape and relieve stress. Overall, district 186 is an amazing school district and there's no other place I would have rather grown up.

Jonathan Dayton high school has a pretty good education program. However they could have a little bit more diversity, and some teachers could be a little bit more qualified.
My daughter is a student at Walton and I'm continuously impressed and amazed at how wonderful the teachers are, and how much my daughter is growing and learning.
