Absolutely amazing school. My kids had to undergo many changes due to retirement, death or termination of teachers (forgot to mention, they were new to Florida and the school this year) and they came out of the change well transitioned and very well adjusted to the new class/teachers. We were so happy we made the decision to attend Kelley Smith. I have the utmost respect for the teachers and staff at this school. Thank you all for giving Rylee and Kamryn the quality education, guidance and helping them to adjust individually according to their needs. You are by far the best. Have a great summer. Hope to see you next year.

I love KSES! The staff is so caring and concerned about the welfare of the students. The reading coach, Mrs. Ryals, knows all of the students and genuinely cares for them. They have gotten a bunch of AYP students, but they continue to do excellent things. I am so glad my children go to this school!

I loved Kelley Smith we moved to Orange Park for 2 years and now moving back. My oldest girl that is just turned 8 went here in kindergarten i worried about her being behind when she started but they were excellent Mrs. Christian was the best teacher we could have asked for to give her the tools to do as well as she is making A's and B's we can't wait to come back with her and our other two children because i know they'll do very well there

Kelley Smith is an excellent school. As a former student and now a parent of a student, I wouldn't have my child in any other school. They do need to tighten up on the discipline of some students. On the bright side parents are very involved and security is taken seriously.

KSES is one of the top schools in the nation. Both of my children have attended and graduated from Kelley Smith. Laura France, Principal of KSES expects the best from faculty, staff and students. Renee Lamoreaux, Asst. Principal, lends her support in all aspects of school life. My husband and I have been very pleased with the education that our children have received at this school. The school scores are the highest in the county across all grade levels.

This is a wonderful school. I taught their for two years and was very impressed with the dedication of teachers, staff, and administration. J. Symmonds is an excellent leader, she honestly keeps the students interest in mind when making decisions.

I feel that my children are in the best school in this area at the time. The parents and staff are all committed to providing the best education possible for our students. While there is always room for improvement, great steps have been taken in just the past 2 years. Our students grades, test scores and attitudes show what difference parent and staff attitudes and efforts can make in the students' performance.
