Welcome to Springfield Middle School (SMS). Meeting the educational needs of young adolescents requires special curricula that feature content that connects with the everyday lives of students as well as activities that actively involve them in the learning process. SMS academic standards are high. Although the Ohio Department of Education's rating system has recently changed, it is important to reflect that SMS has consistently achieved the highest possible ratings over the past several years!
We are very proud of the entire SMS family - students, parents, faculty, and staff - for consistently being recognized for outstanding academic achievement. We truly are committed to being exceptional - - without exception!
Opportunities to enrich student learning, including the availability of Honors courses, foreign language offerings, problem-based learning approaches all challenge today’s learners to develop and refine the critical thinking skills they will need to become tomorrow’s leaders. Classes are offered to students on a trimester schedule. The school mascot is the Blue Devil.
Academics are complimented by a full range of creative, athletic and extracurricular programs, including:
|Robotic Lego League
||7th Football; 8th Football
||Power of the Pen
||Yearbook ID: WP155192Y0

Springfield Middle School
"As an alumnus of Springfield Local Schools, one may expect my opinion to be nothing less than favorable. I can tell you that as an active parent and community member, Springfield Local Schools consistently raises the bar for producing a quality education.
The staff amaze me on a daily basis as to their willingness to go the extra mile and put forth consistent effort both in and out of the classroom. I am very pleased to see the tradition continue as I watch my own children receive the same first-class education that helped make me the person I am today."

Principal's Weekly Message
Mr. Jeff Pendry
Inquiry and Scientific Process
Springfield Middle School 8th Grade Science Teacher Miss Lindsay Friedman channeled the inner child for students recently and used Curious George to help in her lesson about inquiry and scientific processes!
Dressing as Curious George, she also used excerpts from recent versions of the children's classic which emphasizes the use of scientific method in discovery and learning. Needless to say, she got the attention of students and made her instruction and their learning both relevant and meaningful.
This is just another great example of teachers finding creative methods to engage students!!
Come see us at Our Open House

Each of us looks forward to greeting you during our Open House on August 27th at 6 pm.
