Springfield School District No. 186 Reviews
Amazing school district with the best staff and administrators highly recommended! Everything is professional and the teachers really cares about the students. I’ve been around every school in district 186 and observed in classrooms and the education is spectacular. And the teachers engage in every student.
My experience with district 186 is good but there are many things I think they should change. The dress code is ridiculous, they have the simplest things as a dress code but allow cheerleaders to roam around in short short skirts. Speaking of athletes, their basket ball teams and other sports definitely get special treatment. At least at my school lanphier high school, they are top tier and get most of the money spent on them. I feel like they don’t know how to manage their funds well. Stop focusing on basketball and focus on education and getting better books and laptops and creating a safe environment for your students to keep them from getting bullied. I feel like they have a lot to improve.
Iles Elementary is FANTASTIC! Teachers and administration are caring and really prepare the students to be global thinkers! Springfield High School is also FANTASTIC! Great variety of AP courses for the students and plenty of extra curriculars to choose from.
