Very good school to bring up your kid in! Teachers are great and treat the kids like family!
I love this school, my children attend this school and I would not pull them out of this school for anything. Yes there are teachers there that should not be there but that is at every school. The good teachers outweigh the bad!!
My kid loves this school. We want to move closer to my parents, but we will not take my kid out of this school!
This is by far the most outstanding school in the entire state. I have moved around from school to school and have never liked any of them as much as I LOVE this one. Parnets, if your child needs an amazing school send them to this one. The teachers, the principles, even the other students all treat everyone with great respect. Once again I say this school is fantastic.
I'm a former student of this school. The good: The small town atmosphere and tradition of multiple generations of families attending create and enforce a culture of respect and pride that I have seen in no other instutution. The sports programs are generally excellent. The bad: That same small town atmosphere has its own drawbacks, including religious persecution for some. That is not unique to this school, of course. The ugly: Academics (or, lack thereof.) The curriculum being taught at the senior level here is fairly equivalent to what's taught to junior high/ underclassmen in suburban schools in other parts of the country. I base this on what I experienced as a student in multiple districts (military fam), and my observations since working in the field of education.
In 2005 Smithville school was just beginning to slide now in 2009 it has reached close to bottom!
I love this school. I moved here about 3 years ago and I dont regret it at all. Smithville is a great school and I wouldn't ever go back to my old school.
i think that the school is great in some ways i would be happier if the teachers would actually have faith in us and give us a chance instead of yelling at us all the time. there are times were you can learn something and be smart other wise you cant! if you have a rating 1 to 5 i would rated it a 2
I feel that Smithville is a good school when you are looking for that 'small school feeling.' The majority of the teachers are eligible and qualified to teach, but there is the small percentage of teachers who should not be allowed in the classrooms. My son is a recent graduate. Eight days before the final exam, we were called in for a parent-teacher conference. Eight days! They wanted to inform us of what was going on when in fact, we had been telling the school for three months that we knew that course was a problem. We were told each time that if he tried, he would have no problems. Guess what, he passed! I still feel they 'gave' him his grade. Nevertheless, he did graduate!
This is a great school with teachers who are caring and knowledgeable. My children went to this school & my grandchildren will soon be entering. While reading the comments of the disgruntled parent that has put her comment on this site, one must remember that all parents will not be happy with any school system ALL of the time. There are just some kids who will not or can not do their school work and many parents do not want to 'put up' with their children when they get home from work. Just keep this in mind when reading about our wonderful school.
I think this is one of the best schools to go to in the state of Mississippi. It has great athletics and academics. It has great teachers and a great principals. Somebody that added their review obviously didn't know what they were talking about. I go to school there so I would know.
This school is one of the most pathetic excuses for an education facility in the state. The entire town is a conspiracy.
