This is a wonderful school. It has strong leadership and knowledgeable teachers. The computer aided curriculum is very beneficial. The school offers challenging academic programs as well as college creit programs.
Nixon-Smiley is a good school to go to i have no prob. The teachers are always there taking u step by step. I have been there since i was in p-k and i am in 8th now and i have to say i have learned alot.
For the time i was at Nixon everyone was great they just had a bullying problem.
nixon smiley rocks. The teachers rock. Yall just keep doing yall's job!! way to go Nixon Smiley
I completely disagree with the thought that Nixon-Smiley needs better teachers. I believe no perfect school district exists, but I do believe the teachers in the district, for the most part, do a wonderful job of teaching our children. My children attend this district and have had very few negative experiences. I feel they are learning at the same level as children in neighboring districts. We are a small school, and that limits us on many things. However, I feel we are doing exceptionally well considering. I don't see how anyone can look at our overall academic scores and say our teachers aren't doing their jobs. We score as well as other districts our size and in our area. I think it is a little embarrassing to make a statement that facts do not support!
Actally, in disagreement with the previous posting, I find that all of the teachers as well as the principal and counselor are very caring and helpful.
Nixon-Smiley needs better teachers who care more about the students and can actually teach. Out of the whole staff there are probably only 3 teachers that actually do their job.
