    My son has absolutely loved his two years at STMS! He just started 7th grade today and is happy to be back with a set of teachers new to him.

    One of the great things about Springfield Township is that in addition to providing a wonderful educational experience to the everyday student they have extraordinary support for the students who need remediation as well as to gifted students.
