My school is very organized, clean, and of the staff is very helpful and you can tell they love what they do. The staff, students and student families are very involved in the community.

my school is very good it is a public school not private you don't not have to pay for lunch and you don't have to work all day you get 15 minutes of recess then you go to specials specials are when you either have gym library music or art my favorite is gym it is very helpful it even has summer school and after school events or activites I think my teachers are very helpful because they always know when you are stuck on anything and they will help you. well thanks for reading this and that's my opinion :D

The teachers and staff at this school are quite friendly but strict. They make sure children follow school policies. I am a student here so I recommend sending your child here.

I have 2 children in this school & volunteer there also. It can be a busy & noisy place but I see kids blossoming, parents participating and very involved teachers. My calls are always returned quickly. My children *are* allowed to wear sweaters (another reviewer claims they can't). My kids do not seem to see any fights or confrontations. Great artwork on display everywhere. Good lessons on civic responsiblity. Very happy.

From my expereince (my son attends Ed Smith) all the staff do their best to make every school day be the best it can be, everyday. However, why no website for the school? If there is a website, it is impossible to find.

Communication with Edward Smith School is quite unsat. Two of my children attend this school, I have called the listed number of 315-435-4650 Five (5) times with out (0) return calls. I live 40 miles away, My children attend this school. I'm trying to be a point of contact so I may be involved with my children's schooling. I left a message every time and they do not call back. Very disappointing coming from a school who would be quick to reprehend a child for doing something wrong.
