For the second year in a row, Springfield High School (SHS) has the number one SPP score among high schools in Delaware County and is tied for tenth in Pennsylvania.
The School Performance Profile, or SPP, informs the public of the academic performance measures of each school in Pennsylvania. The SPP uses multiple sources of data to generate each school’s score. Some of the data includes attendance rates, graduation rates, SAT and AP scores, and the percent of students who scored advanced and proficient on the Keystone Exams.
The 2017 SPP score for Springfield High School is a 97.2 and is based on the performance of the graduating class of 2018.
Principal Joseph Hepp notes the hard work of the students and teachers and the support of the school district administration, School Board of School Directors, and parents/guardians as key factors in the school’s continued success. “The students’ outstanding performance on the SPP is a reflection of their desire and commitment to their overall academic success. Our students strive for and meet with success in all their endeavors, in and out of the classroom. Our teachers are strong academic leaders and role models for our students as they value continued growth and improvement, both academically and socially. Finally, the SHS Administration is grateful to the SSD Administration, Board of School Directors, and parents/guardians for their support of our efforts to provide the students of SHS with a broad and rewarding school experience while meeting with the rigorous academic standards and expectations of PDE.”
The first SPP score was published in fall 2014. Congratulations to SHS for finishing on top in Delaware County as well as tied for tenth in the state, as PDE will be releasing new guidelines in the fall of 2018.
