  1. Approximately 50% of the graduating class is either high honors or honors?? Grade inflation perhaps?

    It would be interesting to see the list of where people are going to college, if they are.

    1. Perhaps these young people worked hard and earned those grades? Most of them probably play a sport or two, perform in the band, chorus or drama club,or one or two of the other clubs that SHS has to offer and they probably do community service and are contributing members of our community. Congratulations to the graduating class of 2014.

  3. How about "nice job" kids?! It must be hard to go through life in such a negative place. I know most of these kids and yes they are going to great colleges and trade schools. The list of those schools was on the graduation program.... I'm sure the high school could provide that list for you. Have a nice day!

  5. Hey, just wondering. Even elite colleges, such as the Ivy League(where Springfield students rarely go), has wrestled with the same issue.

    And playing sports, being members of clubs, or doing community service have nothing to do with being an honor student. It has to do with academic achievement--or at least it used to.

    But I love the defensive postures. Compare where your students go to college to Hanover,NH high school, and then get back to me. Haver a nice day too!

    1. The point is that many of these kids made the honor roll based on academic performance AND they played sports (many of them getting all-state recognition) and did a lot of community service.

    2. If I remember correctly, Hanover HS had a cheating scandal a couple of years ago. There are good and bad kids everywhere; having money doesn't make kids smarter or more driven. My children are recent graduates of Springfield HS and have attended good schools and have done well at them.

  6. Anonymous, Hanover NH has a higher propertion of professors as parents of school-age children than Springfield VT. As such they recognize the value of education and encourage (if not push) their kids toward academic achievement.

    Smart kids will do fine anywhere. Whether they have the means to attend a pricey institution of higher learning is another matter.

    I do agree that having professors in a community raises the teaching standards as well as setting a tone of academic achievement. Historically, professors will not put up with crappy curricula.

  7. Anonymous @7:21 I think the point was that NOT ONLY are those students honor students, but they DO OTHER THINGS as well and usually more than one thing so their time is not JUST spent on academics. Perhaps SHS students don't go to Ivy League schools because they don't want to, not because they can't get in. From what I have seen the students from SHS who are CHOOSING to go on to college are going to some colleges that are difficult to get into. Perhaps as another person suggested, you should contact SHS and get a list of the colleges these kids are going to. I get really upset with people who continually knock the education that students get in Springfield, but do nothing about it except complain. If you don't like the educational offerings in Springfield you have a couple of options.... either get on the school board and effect some change or MOVE to Hanover, NH (or any place else) where apparently all of their students attend Ivy League schools. But if you are unwilling to do either, stop bashing what we have here because it doesn't make anything better. "You're either part of the solution or you're part of the problem." Eldridge Cleaver

    1. Dear Eldridge,
      If you buy my house I will move, gladly.

      Interesting that my primary care doctor used to live in Perkinsville but moved to avoid Springfield schools. And doesn't SHS have the highest drop out rate in VT? And believe me if you can go to a tier one college, you go--unless you cannot get in that is.

      Got you going didn't I??

    2. If they lived in Perkinsville they didn't have to move to avoid Springfield schools.
