I sometimes think this must be the best middle school in the country. My son just finished his first year here and he can't wait to go back for 7th grade. The principal and the majority of the teachers are excellent. The kids get along well - it is a diverse and accepting community of young people. The perfect combination of academic rigor and social connectedness. Keep up the good work!!!

We are in our second year of middle school and so far things have been great! The sixth grade teachers also teach students in seventh grade, providing much-needed consistency and clear expectations. Our child has enjoyed her electives but has struggled to be able to particpate in athletics (tryouts and severe cuts for each team make it very competitive.) The school is clean, polite, and caring. We have loved all our daughters' teachers. A change in administration last year has seen only improvement and a positive attitude.

There are opportunities for kids to get extra help if they need it, and the teachers are caring and helpful to the kids and available and responsive to parents' concerns.

This school is thus far one of the best I've been to. The community is great, and supports you, and it's filled with 'kool' people. I'll be sad when I have to leave.

I have had four children to attend Smith Middle School, this will be my daughter last year. It will be like a grieving process once she grauduates Smith next year. They have higly qualified teachers there, but to add I feel all of Chapel Hill/Carrbboro Schools are great. This is my second time writing an review for Smith Middle School. There are no words to express how please I am eith this school, so I would like to add keep up the good work.

I love Smith! Some of the teachers aren't the best, but on a whole, it's good.

High quality administration and teachers. Smith does a very good job of teaching both high acheiving and struggling students in many of the same classes. Prolific extracurricular activities are excellent, as is the school's commitment to developing the whole child, not just the intellect. Unique partnership with UNC puts extra hands in the classroom. Highly recommended.
