Smoky Valley Middle School 2

The principal at this school is a joke. He's never there, but when he is, he is mean kids who come from families that won't fight back. He doesn't care if kids fail ALL their courses for 4 years, he just passes them along without tutoring or summer school, just to get them out. He's just lazy! He's also mean to the female staff and only tells certain teachers what is going on. The rest of the school has no idea. Every email to staff includes a second one for a correction. And, he gets paid an exorbitant amount! They seem to have a very high recidivism rate at this school and one has to ask 'why?.' There are also some teachers who are very lazy and just 'teach' by computers. What they teach is what will be on the standardized tests. There is no passion in it! I'm very disappointed. Also, they had a GREAT librarian there and the kids loved her - could go to her for anything and she would be there for them. She was also an actual librarian with a degree. She quit (much to the chagrin of students and parents) and now they have an old tech teacher with no library training in there yelling constantly at the kids! The kids don't like to go in there anymore.

This school has a technology program you simply will not find anywhere else in a small town environment perhaps in the entire nation. Every student has a laptop and uses technology in a way which is efficient, effective and prepares them for the future.

Not a very good school. The only way you will do good is if you are popular or play sports. My sister went there 4 years, i went there 4 years, and my brother is in his first year there. Some of the 7th and 8th grade teachers are not very nice.

Very fine teachers, staff, facilities, & activities. I am especially pleased with the music education my daughter has received.

I got to this school and I think that this school is one of the best schools in Kansas. We have one of the highest ratings, and our goals to achieve state awards has been ranked high on the level of improvement. The middle school has won several awards. This is the bewst school you could possibly go to in Kansas, and the midwest.
