I have two children who have endured this school. Three years ago, it was decent, now...it seems very disorganized with teachers who seem inexperienced and at a loss on how to connect with and educate elementary students. The entire school seems to really struggle to keep up with and maintain decent standards. My child will definitely be moved to another school after this school year. I'm a bit disappointed with the outcome of our experience at Smith - and the Duncanville district as a whole, but in my search for better, I've found surrounding districts to be equally poor in their service to educating children as well. I have a whole newfound respect for those who are able to home school their child(ren).

I have a 4th grader who is in Ms Winn class. He really like Ms Winn and she has been a great help with assisting him in learning. Also my K-5 student has a great teacher as well. My student love Ms Richardson and has learn alot being in her class. These are two outstanding teachers. Mostly everyone is excellent to work with including the lunch room staff, Pricipal and Assist Pricipal. Great Job Smith

I've had a good experience at this school. Teachers have been open to parental invovlment. My daughter 4th grade teacher Mrs. Craft is awesome she gave great suggestions on what I can work with my daughter own. Environment seems pleasing and the office staff was welcoming. If any complaints, I believe teachers need more help in disciplining misbehaving students in class.

We were really impressed with Smith when our son was in first grade. At that time, it was known as Smith Academy. It had excellent an outstanding principal and many advanced programs for the kids. That changed the next year, with the change in principals. DISD decided all elementary schools should be equal, but rather than adding to the other schools, resources were withdrawn from Smith. Children were no longer allowed to talk at lunch nor to go outside after lunch. Recess was eliminated. The school day for these K-4 kids was longer than for highschoolers. We pulled our sons out and homeschool them.

This school is as close to private as you can get in a public setting. We really enjoyed the Kindergarten teachers!

Smith is a great school with great teachers. It has provided a very stable foundation for my children in the past 5 years. We have been a part of each grade offered at Smith and I can def. say that the whole staff seems to work well as a team.

I attended Smith from 1st grade all the way up to 6th grade. Smith is the best school I know of, I always came home with a smile on my face. We had lots of field trips, excellent teachers, and lots of learning with fun. I also love this school because there wasn't ever any violence or referrals written up on kids.
