I just enrolled my daughter in the Springfield Public School system. It seems to me to be a little run down. I come from a small town with a small ratio of students to teachers so her going to a bigger school is sort of hard. Everyone is very friendly and nice, I'm just afraid that she won't get the one on one attention she's used to here. Also, the school seems to be "poor" for lack of a better word. Like there isn't enough funding or something. But, the only alternative is private school which is much too expensive.
