My child is in her second year at Smyrna Elementary school. Although I can tell all about two great teachers, I can also tell about a pitiful situation involving third party visitors (without parental permission). It's been a pitiful ride to say the least. The school as well as the board of education has been made aware of this situation. Nothing has been done about it! I'd tell anyone to fear for their childs safely at this school. They seem to love drama without considering the safety of the children. The school resource officer told me to my face that I don't have the right to know who shows up at the school to visit my child. The principal simply doesn't seem to care.

I love this school! I have two children that attended. Ms. Powell is THE best kindergarten teacher! We had here two years in a row! She is willing to work with your child and keep you up to date. Mrs. Evans is a wonderful first grade teacher. We didn't always see eye to eye, but your child's best interests are what she is after! They also have the best office staff! No bad words for the school at all!

I have two children. One child went to Smyrna Elementary until moving into the middle school. One child is currently attending Smyrna Elementary. I have nothing bad to say about this school. This school is wonderful. I have seen how much these teachers really care for the children to succeed. The are very willing to keep you updated on your child. They will inform you if your child needs help in certain subjects. They let you know when they are doing better with their struggles. They send happy notes about how well they do in classes they excel in. I have had to use an I.E.P. for one of my children. These teachers really try to use and help children with special needs. I have seen this first hand. I could not see any reason someone should dislike this school.

So far for my son who is in his first year here at SES, it has been a really good experience for him.

I have two children at this school and I apologize daily for wasting two years of their lives here. Staff is very condescending and not helpful. Very lax attitude toward education. If you can afford to avoid this school, please do so. Save yourself the headaches!!

I have 2 children that attend this school. my daughter who is now in second grade started school in Lavergne and made a marked improvement after switching to Smyrna, and has been an honor role student from her first card marking. My son started at Smyrna this year and I cannot say enough good things about his teacher. Principle Zago knows nearly every child by name and greets them each morning with a smile and a hug! And his staff is so caring...We looked very hard at all schools before we bought in Smyrna so if your looking for nice neighbours and GREAT schools look no further!

Both of my sons attended Smyrna Elem. last year (03-04)and will be attending this year again; it's a great school with an awesome Principal. The staff is very friendly and they are wonderful with the kids. Principal Zago and Coach Hess certainly picked the right profession, they are great with the kids and they understand children's minds. One of my boys is a bit hardheaded and the other a class clown; Principal Zago and Coach Hess were awesome at working with them, I couldn't have asked for better people to work with me guiding my children. If your child is zoned to attend this school, I say 'good for you!' Karen Johnson

I went to this school as a child and now my son is attending there. There are still some of the same teachers there as when I attended. Thats always a plus, to see the Longevity. The school does need some updating on the inside and out. It is a very good school, the teachers are great and so is the Principal. We moved last christmas so we have been at this school for half of the year. The teacher and the principle all made us feel welcome and it made the adjustment period for my soon a little easier.
