I go to SMS. I am in 8th grade almost 9th. I say this school is a great school. The staff is nice for the most part. Some teachers are a little strick, but hey if they were all nice then it would be called school right?
My daughter attends SMS and loves it. She's in the Gifted/Talented program, which I think is run very well. All teachers seem excited to be teaching. Administration seems to be supportive of kids and teachers. Good facility. Good athletic fields. Great access to student grades (even on daily homework) via computer.
