If I could give a negative star I would. My first child graduated top 4 in her class. But hated school. The kids and teachers were awful as a whole. Unless u were name branded to the county. My second child got physically and vebally bullied and NO one did a thing about. In fact it was kept hidden and hush hush. The new super intendant of schools played a big part in that. Go figure. My second child was also top on her class and an excellent athlete but was beaten down and kept there. She tried harder than I've ever seen anyone. If it wasn't for her guidance counselors, Miss Goodman especially, I fear how bad it could have actually gotten. She eventually dropped out. I hated that cause she was almost done. But it was best thing she ever did. She has achieved greater heights since she left that awful place. She has earned a full ride to a good college and has been rewarded for efforts finally. I seriously caution any parent sending their child to schs. Especially if they are a girl and not from the county originally. Could write a book and just might. This school is an epic example of a degression in education and society.

SCHS is top of the line. Yes all school districts will have teachers and board members who are in the profession for the wrong reason but above 90% of the teachers at SCHS are there for the students! They work not only during school hours but before and after school hours and on weekends! I believe those in the teaching profession have the toughest jobs on the planet and get the least respect of any as well. Teachers get the blame when a student does bad even if the student is a low life who would rather sleep in class than learn. I think those of you on here to bash teachers and say your children aren't learning should change the way they are brought up at home and maybe they will have more drive to do good on their own and have more respect for teachers and others.

As a former student at smith county high school, I urge parents to aviod this school at all costs. Yes there are a handful of teachers that care,but they are vastly outnnumbered by the one that do not care about anything but a paycheck and football. I wish that i had went to a good school so that i did not have to work so hard to catch up in collage.

if you are a parent i want you to know that when your child walks in a school nothing at that moment is more important. I also want you to know that teachers and staff most of the time work OFF THE CLOCK. do you think they get paid for ball games? do you think that get paid after 3? i wonder how many parents with jobs work for free just to benifit people who are some times not even thankful they even showed up? there are bad apples in staff im sure but i know there are more problem children than teachers and staff. if parent could get rid of this My CHILD IS GOD complex teachers and kids will get lots more done. Your child may be God at home but hes a student who should know how to behave in public when at school. That should be expected and demanded.
