My son had the best school year of his academic career last year due to the amazing fifth grade teaching team. He grew in intelligence and life skills that will greatly improve his chances of future success in education. Thank you fifth grade team. SMMS is the best school in Claiborne County.

I have just read the reviews given by parents about our school. I am sorry to say that the majority of them only have negative things to say. I wish that the parents of children who have been helped would write their own review. You would find that positive comments would outweigh the negative ones by far. SMMS is a good school. As a teacher, I see how hard the teachers work here. Many spend their evenings preparing for the next day's classes and spending their own money for their classrooms and projects. Look at our report card. Last year we had the best report card in the county. That says a lot for our teachers and students. Someone must be teaching in the school. Maybe the people writing the negative comments should decide where the problem really lies.

There are very few caring teachers at SMMS. My son hate sthis place. I am thankful for Mrs. Messer and Mrs. Lewis because without them, he would refuse to go most days.

My son will be attending his last year at SMMS this year, Thank God. I am very disappointed in the way the Principal speaks to the students and parents. It is very hard for the students to get the help they need to understand the work that is given to them.SMMS is run like a prison, not a school, and that is sad.

My child has attended this school for 3 years. most teachers don't care if she learns anything or not. They not at all helpful with helping my child understand math, english or science. The after school tutoring is a joke. it is just a tax payers money wasted. a babysitter service.
