This schools needs improvement. The school is very disorganized, especially in the administrator office. Many times, the people in the office have no idea what is going on, when it comes to certain situations. They start off trying to implement rules, and quickly that's thrown out the window. For example, there was a time where you had to show I.D., when picking up your child. They don't even check anymore. They had stress all this stuff about kids eating healthy, and healthy snacks. They even went as far as having every Wednesday, which they claim was inspire by Michelle Obama,....that went out the window. They sell pure candy and junk at their dances, and special events, but you want kids to be healthy? ....confused. Parents concerns are irrelevant. They are right and you are wrong. This school is all about numbers.

My daughter has attended Smith since kindergarten and is now entering the 4th grade. She is very smart and all of her teachers have challenged her throughout the years. I think the teachers and administrative staff are very enthusiastic about learning and the children recognize that. They have made many improvements and they strive to be the best. What the school is lacking is parental participation and support. I think Smith is doing a great job!

This is the worst school my children have attended since I have been living in Clayton County the teachers do not look out for the kids well being every time I turned around they wanted me to give money for what????..no extra activities to help better the child's education I would have did my research before sending my children to a school that is ranked #2 out of 10..

This school year 2012-2013 at Smith has proven to be the year of the fake it til you make it. We have been mislead by a Principle that makes everything look great with tutoring programs where the teachers are not even in the room, party every Friday with money raised to be spent on more parties and not educational activities, no real plan to get test scores up, but try efforts to say we put basketball and cheerleading in this school. The teachers must know that they can get away with this sorry ability to teach with no one learning anything, for them to put fake grades in gradebook that does not match the very low CRCT scores. The Special ED program is the only thing worth keeping the doors at Smith open.

My school is fun. We have many activities. More than you can count. The education is good as well. We learn in a fun way and actually your child will have fun and not even realize that your child is learning so much.

It is hard not to compare previous leadership to the current, but after having such great leadership from Ms. Rhudaseal you expect it. Unfortunately we have yet to see the same display from the principals we've had the last 5 years! I have had two children attend to this school and sadly had to watch the standards decline! I hope the school can get back to the Greatness that once flooded the hallways!

My daughter is finishing kindergarten, splitting her time between specialized autism services and a mainstream classroom. I have been incredibly pleased with the services, teacher support, learning opportunities and overall sense of community at Smith. My daughter's teachers, her parapros, and principal Mrs. Brictson have demonstrated great professionalism while also being friendly and accessible to parents and students alike. I've seen the students in both her classrooms make great progress over the course of the year. Call me pleasantly surprised, given the county's negative publicity overall, but I think Smith is a school to be proud of and it's on track to keep improving. We're happy to be returning next year.

Thanks to the entire staff at Smith Elementary. Special thanks to Ms. Banks for all your hard work and dedication because of you my son is now equipped for middle school. A solid foundation is a must in order to be successful in life and he has received that at Smith. My son has been in attendance at Smith since Kindergarten and each grade along the way has been a success!

I have 4 kids that attend Smith Elementary and I must say I am so pleased. Mrs. Rudeseal and the entire teaching staff are absolutely wonderful. Being a Principal is not an easy job but I must say that Mrs. Rudeseal knows each student and is interested in his/her sucess. She will go above and beyond to help any child. The teaching staff has a very strong support system amongst each other as they all work well together. I have to rate this school as outstanding.

You very seldon find principles involved in the childrens activities, but I beg the differ with you on Mrs. Rudesell she's very involved and also concerned about the well being of all students at R.T. Smith. The teachers are out of sight. Over all I would rate the school outstanding.
