Welcome to Springfield Middle School (SMS).  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 SMS has consistently achieved the highest possible ratings over the past several years!   

We are very proud of the entire SMS family - students, parents, faculty, and staff - for consistently being recognized for outstanding academic achievement. We truly are committed to being exceptional - - without exception! 

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.

Academics are complimented by 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

Parent Testimonial
"As an alumnus of Springfield Local Schools, one may expect my opinion to be nothing less than favorable.  I can tell you that as an active parent and community member, Springfield Local Schools consistently raises the bar for producing a quality education. 

The staff amaze me on a daily basis as to their willingness to go the extra mile and put forth consistent effort both in and out of the classroom. I am very pleased to see the tradition continue as I watch my own children receive the same first-class education that helped make me the person I am today."

Anyone who would like to send him a card or some “get well wishes” is invited to do so via Springfield Middle School. We promise that any cards or notes dropped- off or sent via snail mail to the SMS Office (7001 Madison Street – Holland, OH 43528) will find their way to Mr. Devol and his family.

Jeylan Icke is an 8th grader at SMS battling Leukemia. She has worn #30 as a member of the 7th Grade Girls' Basketball Team - to show support for Jeylan, SMS will host #jeylanstrong night when the school's 7th and 8th Grade Girls' Basketball Teams host Perrysburg.

 SMS/Jeylan supporters are selling #jeylanstrong T-shirts for $5. Purchase of a shirt or a minimum donation of $5 will serve as admission to the games on January 22. Students may purchase the shirts during lunch and families/community members are welcome and encouraged to purchase a shirt/send money with their child and of course - attend the game!  

Team members from both Springfield and Perrysburg will wear orange jerseys to support the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society. The event will also feature a raffle of several "Gift Basket" donated by members of the Springfield Schools staff and area businesses.   A banner is being made to show appreciation to businesses that are providing support for the event. Families can also have their name displayed on the banner with a $25 donation. All proceeds, t-shirt sales, and other donations will go into a trust to support Jeylan Icke and the Lymphoma/Leukemia Society. Those interested in becoming involved or wishing to donate gift baskets/funds are asked to contact the Springfield Middle School office for more information
