Springfield R-XII School District Reviews

Although the Springfield R-XII School District is not the worst, it was lacking in multiple areas. Many students who had learning disabilities or struggled in the classroom did not receive the help that needed, and those who did not need as much help were neglected by teachers. Socially, there were multiple cliques and a definite "student caste system" established unspoken. Those who could afford did, those who could not afford did not. I grew up in poverty and was prevented from participating in multiple activities due to the lack assistance provided. Bullying was a large factor in the schools I attended, and when reported to teachers/councilors/principles, there was little done about it. I was left to defend myself and find a solution on my own. This is not something I did not appreciate, it was something that I had little guidance in and felt lost.

Springfield Public Schools accessibility and resources has made my K-12 experience diverse and conventional. SPS has gone above and beyond to create an experience that is memorable with various learning experiences and experiments within the classroom, and through constantly changing curriculum and school standards. No semester was the same as the last, which kept students on their toes while diving into new material with exciting technological materials. While SPS valued change, they neglected real-life experiences by sheltering students from tough conversations, challenging thoughts, and world-questioning principles. The lack of students personal intellectual and intercultural growth stunted various outlooks on sundry opinions and anomalous questions. It is imperative for SPS to reevaluate the significance personal development, and look beyond the walls of a classroom for inspiration to do so.
If you have special needs kids stay away! My son has aggressive autism. Living in this school district was a nightmare! They don't follow the IEP, can't handle behaviors, and are rude if you have a job that prevents you from dropping everything immediately.
