My experience with Springfield public schools was a very meaningful one, seeing that I was able to learn and succeed properly in a community like mine, with minorities and a very diverse community and a not so rich city. I was provided with great education that helped me be able to maintain great grades as i progressed and moved into high school. I was able to successfully apply and be accepted to great colleges with no problems regarding my grades and whether I was a reliable student that will be able to keep my good grades stable and not cause any problems. With great teachers and extra programs to help me throughout my journey from elementary school all the way to high school kept me grounded in school and allowed me to succeed whenever I needed any kind of help.

I have been in the Springfield Public School system for 10 years. Over the years of growing as a person and a student in this school district, I have experienced many of the major modern day changes in the district. We have advanced over the years to 1-1 laptop use for middle and high school students, and improved out technology use in the classroom. Many of our standardized tests are now on computers or taken online. I agree and disagree with some of the ways we use the laptops. In my school and in other schools, there are many on going issues with laptop use, which needs to be enforced. I have much respect for the superintendent of our school district, and he has the mind for improvement in Springfield schools. We focus a lot on race and equity in our school district but we only "talk" There needs to be more enforcement on combating racial discrimination in our school district, but we are working on it.
I appreciate how Springfield public schools provide us with free education, lunch, and breakfast. Although the food provided can be much healthier and more in quantity it's still good that they provide us with free food. The education we receive is also great, the teachers are well trained and can adapt to new changes. We also get free sports, unlike other places where they have o play to join a team. The only terrible thing about the schools is how dirty the school is and how worn down they are.
