Springfield Middle School welcomes our website visitors!

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 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

SMS PBIS Carnival - Recognizing Positive Behavior
Deserving Springfield Middle School students were treated to a school carnival on Monday, May 21st!  The carnival, sponsored by a positive behavior committee, was put on for students who showed appropriate behaviors in and around school and in classrooms.

The school implemented the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (also known as PBIS) program two years ago and hosted their second annual end of the year carnival. Within the program, students in sixth, seventh and eighth grades had the opportunity to earn points for displaying various behaviors, which include actively participating in class. Points were tracked using an electronic app system for the trimester. Those students who earned a certain number of points were invited to attend Monday’s carnival.

Balloon animals, face painting, and the nail polish station were some of the top favorites among the students.
The PBIS Committee is already making plans for next year’s carnival. Each year they are hoping to make it better in the previous year.
