Our community is doing exciting work together and in 2019, we were named a Massachusetts School of Recognition.

What makes teaching at Springfield Prep different?

  • You want to build relationships with students and families to create a positive classroom culture with high expectations and respect for students' diverse backgrounds and identities.
