Springfield High School is a decent public school. There is a fair amount of diversity and the staff tends to be a mixed bag. Academically, it is what you make it. If you, as a student, are willing to challenge yourself then you will be ready for college. If not, then it's safe to assume nobody else will do it for you. There are many clubs and activities and there is a new building being created soon!
Review Springfield High School
I think that although Springfield High School does offer students a lot of great opportunities, has tons of clubs and activities, has amazing academics, and many great teachers, the administration needs to work on hearing what the students are trying to say and connecting with them. There are also many teachers who do not care about the students, or at least do not show that they do. I know a large amount of the student body who feel extremely stressed due to the amount of homework and pressure put on them, but have no one to talk to about their stress and how they can reduce it. Springfield High School is so concerned with trying to make the students ready for college, and score the highest on every test that they forget that their students are humans who can only take so much stress. Springfield High School is a great high school, they just need to stop treating their students like numbers based on their test scores.
