I liked being in the yearbook class, great teacher , great experience! I played sports and am glad I did. I made life long friendships. The food is not good in the public schools. I would Bring my lunch and eat it as I did research in the library.

The teachers are very helpful. They want to make sure you graduate and stay out of trouble. They do anything they can to get you where you need to be. Even if it is staying after unil six o'clock. They are very willing to help. There is a lot of diversity as well. There are students and teachers from all over the world there. It gives you a chance to see how they are, what their culture is like, and the many different things that they do in their countries. The academics are great. There are so many different things you can study, from languages to sciences and maths, and even different forms of art. They want to make sure you get as much preparedness and different areas of study for when you go into the real world.
I have been a student in the Springfield Public Schools for 13 years. I started attending school at 4 years old in a preschool classroom. Throughout the years, I have been very pleased with my experience. All of my teachers have been invested deeply in my education and my happiness. I have made lasting connections with teachers I still reconnect with to this day. Given the opportunity, I chose to stay in the Springfield system, where I was comfortable and well-adjusted.
