History[edit]

Springfield School was founded on 1 September 1966 by husband and wife Mirza Nadir Agha and Nusrat Agha in a rented bungalow on the corner of Karsaz Road and Shahrae-Faisal. O levels were introduced in 1986.

Academics[edit]

Equality of all citizens is preached from Grade One, as students wear identical uniforms (including shoes) on a daily basis. Homework in English Language, Urdu and Mathematics is done right from Kindergarten, and is graded on a daily basis to provide feedback and monitor the progress of students.

Examinations are conducted twice a year along with 'tests' on at least a bi-weekly basis. Declamation and public speaking competitions are a frequent occurrence and students are encouraged to be creative in the annual school concert.

Campus[edit]

There is a field which was mainly used to play cricket but is now used to play softball, soccer and field hockey. There is a library, a hall (which is often used for debates), a science laboratory for experiments and science practicals, and a computer lab. The library, despite being small in size, houses an array of books covering almost all subjects.

Location[edit]

Springfield School is located in K.D.A., the most prestigious locality of Karachi. In spite of being in a central area it is ideally situated in a secluded corner providing a serene and calm environment to the students. The school has been constructed on a plot measuring 9573 sq. yards with all the three sections, Junior, Middle & Senior, housed side by side.

Founders[edit]

Springfield School was established by Mirza Nadir Agha on 1 September 1966 as an English medium school offering education to classes from Nursery to VIIIth with the additional facility of a boarding school for boys only, while the school itself was coeducational.
