Smith Middle School2

This school is a very bad school. It is out of control. A good bit of the teachers don't even care and they tell and show this to the students. I've seen and heard chaos in the school many times. There are lots of fights and the students are recording them and putting them on the internet. The dress code is being enforced with only some of the students and others get away with it. Thought it would be better than Austin but was just as bad. My kids tell me awful stories all the time. My kids are not the same for having gone to both Smith and Austin. The teachers do not use proper English and talk just as badly as the students.
I am the parent of a Smith Middle School student. I am new to the Beaumont area and I can say this has been quite an experience. They have no text books to send home with the students. Everything is done on worksheets. There are books available for the students to check out, but children are a product of their environment. The lack of organization and success of the students is appalling. My daughter struggles seriously in two subjects and I can count on one hand how many times homework has been assigned in these areas. I do the best I can to assist with child at home, but I think if a teacher see a student/students struggling in a subject sometimes assignments outside the class are relevant and helpful to the student.
