Springfield High School, while having very patient, hardworking teachers, has not been my ideal high school experience. In my opinion, if a student is not enrolled in honors, AP or IB classes, they are not going to be learning anything. The students in Springfield High School that are not taking higher-level courses are loud, and the majority of them are trouble makers who constantly start fights and drama. Our security and disciplinary codes could be much stronger. Springfield High School wastes too much money on unnecessary software and investments when we could be spending it on much more necessary things, such as paper, a thing we often have a shortage on. I love all of my teachers and don't have a single complaint about any of them, but that is me speaking as an AP/IB student.

Springfield High School has provided a pretty typical high school experience for me. I've been fortunate enough to have taken AP/IB classes and have had the better teachers and classmates in the school. However, the standard level classes and teachers are not as successful as they could be. I think this is because of the lack of effort and passion from the students and teachers, which is hard to change. I've also been fortunate that my voice has been heard. The administration is willing to work with responsible students to make the school a better place. My principal is especially easy to talk to and challenge when we disagree. I go to an intercity high school and I have really valued the opportunity to interact with people my age that come from a variety of different backgrounds. It's taught me about other cultures that aren't my own. I think Springfield High provided me an adequate education, but there is room for improvement.
Springfield is known for not caring for its arts programs. Most of Springfield's money is deposited into the football program which is mediocre at best. Likewise, Springfield also lowered the average GPA to participate in any sports program. As a result students can under achieve just to participate in their sports. The administration makes rash and strict decisions which leaves parents and students wondering if they even care about their opinions.
