Homework is given weekly and is up to the kids to get it done in time. This makes it easier for the kids in sports or busy on some nights to still manage homework and plan accordingly.

Alice Smith staff work hard to differentiate lessons for each student's needs. My kids have been in the gifted program and have thrived.

I felt that there could have been an intervention in the little girl's life before she wasted so many years going to school and hating it. Unfortunately, she has fallen way behind her peers.

The principal here is just plain awesome! He really cares about the kids. The teachers are top notch. Our third grade teacher was the best! She made learning fun and she wants to be there. Parent involvement is very good. Parents go above and beyond to help out.

I am a parent at Alice Smith Elementary. We are extremely happy with the school and the education our children receive. The principal is top notch. She knows each child by name, greets them warmly, and really makes them feel like they belong. The staff is excellent. They really seem to like where they are. They are enthusiastic, love the kids and love teaching. We are very pleased with the small class sizes (20, 21 in kindergarten). I also appreciate the way the teachers collaborate and support each other. There are great evening events that focus on academics, such as family engineering night and the Imagination Fair. We are also pleased with the Gifted and Talented program and teacher. Lots of individual attention and support. We are very pleased with the warm, caring community where each child is encouraged to do their best. We love the diversity of Alice Smith. It's a beautiful school with beautiful children. Another great aspect of the school is the involvement and support of the community. Everyday there are caring adults who work with students on an individual basis. We are extremely happy to belong to this school.
