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.

Our high academics are complimented by equally high expectations for behavior and character!  To challenge students to realize their full potential, we offer a full range of creative, athletic and extracurricular programs, including:

Chess Club Basketball Band
Robotic Lego League Cheerleading Choir
Math Counts Cross Country Newspaper-Devils’ Dispatch
Quiz Bowl 7th Football; 8th Football Power of the Pen
Science Olympiad Track Yearbook ID: WP155192Y0

Parent Testimonial
"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."

SMS Tradition - 6th Grade Outdoor Education
Springfield Middle School (SMS) was very fortunate that Mother Nature cooperated to offer nice weather for 6th grade students to continue the district's tradition of offering hands-on Outdoor Education activities.

For the 4th consecutive year, SMS partnered with the Toledo Area Metroparks to introduce students to 6th Outdoor Classrooms. This year, students were divided into groups for staggered scheduling.  Some visited Oak Openings in Swanton and engaged in activities that included:
* shelter building,
* fire building, and
* geocaching.

While their classmated were at Oak Openings, the other half of the team of students attended programs at Sidecut Metropark in Maumee. At Sidecut students were exposed to:
* canoeing,
* archery, and
* a nature hike focusing on NW Ohio wildlife and vegetation.

SMS teachers are very creative in their efforts to engage students.  The events that occurred over the two-days assisted them in offering the 6th grade students unique opportunities that simply cannot take place in the classroom.

As a culminating event to the 6th grade year, students and teachers enjoyed the opportunity to make connections within the Metroparks.  We can't thank enough all the volunteers who support and make the program possible do a tremendous job of educating the students - #springfieldstrong!
