Springfield Students Score High On Outlook

Springfield public school students seem to have a better outlook about their present and their future than many of their peers around the country. That’s according to a Gallup survey that focused on fifth-through-12th graders in District 186.


Nearly 7,000 students locally took the survey, which measured their levels of “hope, well-being and engagement.” Overall, Springfield students scored higher than the national average, and four schools… Sandburg, Laketown, Owen Marsh, and Lindsay… were among the top 10-percent in the nation.


The numbers are seen as important because students who feel more secure and hopeful generally learn better, and are seen as more likely to succeed in school, and in life.
