“I was pleased to find out how strong the public school system is here. Coming from a larger city where public schools were simply not a good option, it was refreshing to have a number of great choices in Springfield. We have been thrilled with our kids’ elementary and preschool experiences. It has been a welcoming environment with excellent communication from teachers and administrators, and high-quality learning for our kids.”
