The "purpose of Smouse School is to provide each student an educational program that is individualized to meet his or her needs". Amy Wiegmann, the principal of Smouse School has indicated to the parents of special needs children that her "building" is more important than the individualized needs of the "special students" who attend her school. Teachers, aides and staff (in private) do not speak well of her. Parents with children in Smouse school are becoming more and more aware of the dictatorial manner in which she conducts what she refers to as "business".

The principal at this school bases her decisions on business rather than what is best for the physically and emotionally challenged students. The teachers and aides at this school are quite familiar with her rigid behavior.

Smouse is a special education facility, and has an early childhood program housed there as well. It is a school of team decision rather than a neighborhood school, serving students with behavioral, emotional, and intellectual disabilities. The staff is second to none in caring about their students, and academics are infused into every aspect of education. An extensive on site support staff provides medical and behavioral support, and parents love the opportunities their students get here that they would not have at their neighborhood schools.

I attended Smouse School from 1937--1946.Then I attended East High School and graduated June 1950. If it had not been for Smouse School I might not have had a good education. It is a great school. I will be 80 yrs old in May.

I went to this school in the mid/late 1960's. Had a great teacher named Mrs. Pradioux. (Not sure how it was spelled). From there I went to public schools, college, and two master's degrees. I'm now the director of a college in OKC.
