Springfield Public Schools is Missouri’s largest school district. We have built a reputation of academic excellence based on the outstanding performance of our students and schools. More than 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, we 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 of our district high schools are designated Missouri A+ Schools.
Each of our schools and programs align with our three primary district goals of improving student achievement and our graduation rate, and ensuring effective and efficient use of resources. So, while we offer much variety, there is consistency in our effort to provide the best education possible to all our students.
