I am a student. I am in the class of 2013-2014. My opinion is that it is better for the students to write reviews because I went to the school. I love this school. I am an 8th grader and I came during 7 grade. Honestly there is a lot of cliques at the school but no gangs. Although, at the end of the day we all love each other and are all going through the same thing. On my last day of school EVERYONE cried. The school year ended way to fast!!! Your child will love it and it is a place for everyone to fit in and enjoy the year. I encourage you to at go this school ... Trust me you will have tons of good and bad memories just like me. I just graduated from 7 grade. And this school feels like my 2nd home. You can be yourself! Sports are very cool you should try out! Education is really important also. For example, if you are bad in math you can go to Leopard Academy. If you are a honors student let the counselor know and you will be put in a class great for you. Hop this helped :)

I went to this school in 2011. And I loved it! I had lots of fun it was easy to learn, and we had lots of cool projects, and there was so many activities we could do, and I had the coolest teachers! And everyone was really nice

This school sucked. Its was really bad I went here 2011-2012 and the teachers had never gaven me work to do when i ask for the work they just say shut up and sit down. Then they on purpose held me back. Teachers dont teach or discipline the students. They try to control the bullying but dont do a good job about it. So this school is not that good.

I attended Smith Middle School in 98-99. I LOVED that school, the ppl and the teachers way more than the school I moved to which sucked. I dont know how the school is now but when I attended sure there were some incidents but all in all I had a wonderfun experience making great grades and was part of the national jr honor society and the teachers were AMAZING!!! Sometimes I wonder how my life would have turn out if I never moved. Definately an ode to SMS, GO LEOPARDS FOREVER!

This is my daughter's second year at Smith. Teachers are my gripe. I just do not feel they have the credentials they SHOULD have, and wish they would use the English language correctly. Once again this year I do not feel my child is learning much. Thinking of homeschooling again!

I have to comment on the screaming/yelling. The first day I enrolled my child, we were given a tour by another student. I was shocked by the number of classrooms that we walked by with screaming and yelling 'shut up' and such from the teachers. Students were walking out of the classroom. It appeared out of control. I was hoping that this was not normal; however, I had to check my child out on another occasion and a teacher was standing in the hallway (not far from the office) and was screaming negative comments. I realize students can be overwhelming, but it doesn't seem to be the most effective method of management. I have taught middle school for 8 years, but I have never seen that level of disorder. I personally witnessed these two incidents, as well as a couple of others. I have heard worse, but didn't witness the incidents.

i used to be a student as sms. i have transferred to a school out of state, and i must say that Smith is a much better school than i currently attend. sms was the first school on a military base that i have attended and i wish that all schools could be like smith middle. the sports and teachers are very interactive. there also a variety of things to engage as far as extracuricular activities. -Asya Moton

Thank you for a fair assessment of the current situation at our school. There are problems that exist on our campus, but there are probably some issues that need addressing at most public middle schools. The teachers and administration truly have the best interest of the students at heart.

This school was awesome when I attended it in 2005. I had alot of help with m,y special needs. These people who are puting bad reports here need to re look at things. Maybe its their child who needs help. My favorite Teacher was Ms. Valda Steele.Unfortunately she had gotten cancer and I have not heard from her in a while. I hear from other students that were my friends she is doing ok as far as they know. Ms.steele I miss you

This is the most horrible school my child has ever attended and being military that is more than his share for being in only the sixth grade. The teachers do not care nor do they concern themselves with the student's well-being. While there have been a couple of teachers who seem to be concerned the ones who pay no attention are the ones who teach the core subjects.

Im a student at Smith Middle School and I think it is a wonderful school!The teachers are great and they want to teach you what you need to learn before the TAKS test.The staff is very supportive.They have a great band program and a great sports program.Maybe the teachers need more control over the eighth graders and some of the sixth graders but other than that its a great school!

My child is now a seventh grader at Smith MS. I feel very confident that he is receiving quality education. It saddended me to have read such horrible reviews about the teachers. I believe that parents are the key to success in education. While teachers are there to bestow the skills and knowledge upon our children, parents have the responsibilty to send their children to school with an attitude that teachers can work with.

Last year my son was in the sixth grade at Smith. He did well but I don't think he was really challanged. The thing I worried about the most was bullying. There were a lot of problems with this. Most of my sons problems happened during P.E. class. I think the school needs to pay more attention to these incidents. The bullying children seem to always get off with little or no punishment. This is why I may not send my son back to Smith next year. The only reason I would send my son back to Smith is becuase I hear the seventh and eighth grade teachers are very good, and the older students I know there seem happy. Perhaps it is because they don't have to take P.E. where most of the bullying tends to happen.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
