About Springfield Public Schools
Springfield Public Schools (SPS) is Missouri’s largest school district, and they have built a reputation of academic excellence based on the outstanding performance of their students and schools. Over 25,000 students attend 35 elementary schools, an intermediate school (grades 5–6), nine middle schools, five high schools, Phelps Center for Gifted Education, and four early childhood centers. In addition, SPS offer more than a dozen Choice Programs that cater to the diverse needs of many students including the International Baccalaureate program, Wonders of the Ozarks Learning Facility (WOLF), Academy of Exploration at Discovery Center, Health Sciences Academy at Mercy and the Middle College Program. All five district high schools are designated Missouri A+ Schools.
Each school and program aligns with SPS's three primary district goals of improving student achievement and the graduation rate, and ensuring effective and efficient use of resources. So, while SPS offers much variety, there is consistency in their effort to provide the best education possible to all students.
