Smith is a great school! I went there as a kid K-5th grade and loved every bit of it, nothing but wonderful memories. The staff are all friendly and caring and really get kids excited to learn. My niece and nephew go there now as did their older sister and cousins and it's consistently a great learning atmosphere and they all love it just as much as I did. My daughter will be old enough for kindergarten next year and I hope to send her to Smith Elementary so she can experience all of the fun times and great education as well.

Awesome school both of my children attend Smith Elementary and couldn't 'be happier. The teachers and principal really take care of our children the way all parents would like them to. Setting good examples for our kids and a strong work ethic being taught from kindergarten to fifth grade. Thank you all

To keep it as brief as possible, this last year has been the most disarrayed, uncontrolled, school environment amongst both students AND faculty! Common sense leads to the new principal who's policies and procedure's lead to non structure! I understand you were a fomer High School Principal, but keep in mind, these are k-5 students!

This school is not a bad school. If it was, I would be pulling my son out to go to another school. Like other schools it needs improvement in some areas. Just because the school might not be there or won't have improvements until 4 years from now, doesn't mean that problems shouldn't be addressed now!
