Welcome to Springfield Middle School (SMS) - Home of the Blue Devils 

Meeting the educational needs of young adolescents requires special curricula that feature content that connects with the everyday lives of students as well Camp.5as 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 scores demonstrate that SMS students are well prepared to succeed both today and tomorrow!

The entire SMS family - students, parents, faculty, and staff - takes pride in consistently being recognized for outstanding academic achievement. 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

Principal's Weekly Message

Mr. Jeff Pendry

And We Are Back!
As summer break quickly comes to an end, and the new school year is knocking at our doors, we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our junior Blue Devils to Springfield Middle School (SMS). The teachers and staff have been preparing their classrooms and are excited to get the school year rolling.  With the new school year, comes new roles and many new faces to the middle school. This year, we welcome Mr. Andy Ward to his new role as Dean of Student (replacing Mr. Devol who retired this past school year) and school counselor Molly Davis (former counselor at Holloway Elementary).  Also bringing their talents and expertise to the middle school are Lindsay Fischer, Tyler Haughawout, Mallory Holliday, Chad Krukemeyer, Brittany Potts, Emily Starcher, Michael Clark, Jamie Fletcher and Amber Poponak.

We would like to share a few reminders as we begin the school year.  Doors open at 7:15AM for students who participate in the breakfast program. Classes begin promptly at 7:30AM  and students are dismissed  at 2:25PM through the main and side doors.  We are also looking forward to greeting you at our open house which is scheduled for August 30th from 6:00-7:30p.m. During this time, parents and students will have the opportunity to tour the building and meet with teams of teachers.

We look forward to another amazing year with our SMS family. As always, if you have any questions, please contact the main office.  Let's make this a successful school year!  #springfieldstrong!
