SMS provides a diverse and dynamic school environment. Our children (although very different) have been supported and engaged both in the classroom and in extracurricular activities. We couldn't be happier with the staff. The office staff in particular, are warm and friendly and know every child's name. I am impressed!
The 'half hour' of homework my child receives takes all of 5 - 10 minutes if he hadn't finished it already before getting on the bus to go home. It it typically math, and the policy is a half hour homework divided among the classes, so that means mostly math homework.
