Great school. The teachers have a lot of experience within the district and seem to really care about the well being of the students. The kids who go there are generally good kids who treat eachother with respect. I feel like my child is getting a good education in a healthy environment. The principal is fantastic as well. I do have to agree with the previous post about the secretary though! I had a similar experience with one recently and wondered why they would put someone in that position dealing with parents who acted like that! Another one was very sweet on a different occasion though. BISD is doing a great job overall and I have no doubt will continue to do so.

great school, the new secretary is very off putting, she doesn't greet or acknowledge you other than the bare minimum. you end up awkwardly standing there until she feels ready. why they have someone like her there is beyond me........ I dread checking my child out for appts. because of her strange self importance. very involved principal, great counselors. Very interactive teachers who go above and beyond from my experience. It is just a good old fashioned feeling school.

It seems as if the only focus in this school is the athletics program. The teachers are great but the head staff of the school need to shift there focus to things more important than athletics which will get the students no where in career life.


Posted December 17, 2010

The athletics come first, with choir coming in as a very close second, and band after that. That's all the matters to most people. When people think of SMS, they think of the amazing and talented coaches and players. When people think of SMS, they think of all the amazing teachers and choir students who go very far in competitions. When people think of SMS, they think of the band, who is quite talented and does great things. But no one thinks of the art program because it isn't praised correctly. On the other hand, I love some of the teachers there. I connect very deeply with some of the teachers there, which is great. But that's about it. The lunches aren't great, the rules aren't either. I just can't wait until I can go to BHS.

We strategically moved to this area years ago to make sure all three of our kids went to SMS. I grew up in BISD and then worked in BISD, when I was working full time. It s a great District that always keeps families in the forefront. Our last child is now at SMS and we wouldn't dream of having him anywhere else!!

SMS provided a solid educational base for my two children. Although not yet diagnosed with ADD, my daughter s teachers recognized her different learning style. She was treated with respect and provided the in-class accommodations that she needed to be successful. My daughter developed confidence to challenge herself at the college level, graduated, and is now employed in her career of choice. My son thrived with his SMS teachers support. He graduated from BHS on the DAP plan while taking pre-ap & ap classes. His gratitude for his university academic and athletic success extended to his SMS teachers and coaches. The positive atmosphere filters from the administration to the students. PTA members actively support the students because of the inviting &appreciative administrators who encourage participation from the SMS families. Both of my children have maintained relationships with some of their SMS teachers&coaches. What better recommendation could you provide to a school than to see the solid foundation it provided to create successful and appreciative adults?

Smithfield Middle School is without a doubt one of the most nurturing environments a parent could ask for for their child. The atmosphere is one of consistent caring and pursuit of excellence. The staff is sold out and professional. The scores are proof of the commitment. All the pieces are there: quality, leadership and involvement. The best our area has to offer.

We have had 2 girls attend SMS and we have been very pleased at how our girls we educated and nurturedd by the teachers and staff. We so appreciate the consistant character that is shown by our principal and how he strives for excellence. Thank you to all the administration and teachers for your hard work and dedication to making our girls the best they can be.

Both of my students were proud members of the "Raider Nation." Teachers and staff are first rate! We purchased our home in the attendance zone so they could attend SMS. Nothing but positive reviews from us! Semper Fi!

We had the opportunity through open enrollment to send our two children to any school in the Birdville district, and we chose SMS. It was the best decision we could have made. The administrators are top notch, with the perfect balance of compassion and discipline. The teachers are the most professional and caring of any I have seen, and the fact that this is the only Exemplary middle school in the district speaks volumes of them and the administrators. Absolutely the best school that offers the best education!

Both my daughter and youngest son attended Smithfield Middle School. My daughter took all PreAP classes, and I feel she was well-prepared for her high school PreAP & AP classes when she arrived at BHS. She enjoyed her classes and her relationships with her teachers. Since she is well-behaved, she didn't have much interaction with the vice-principals, but they all knew her and were friendly and caring toward her. My youngest son is a special-needs student, and he was taught and taken care of in an excellent manner. We are so pleased our youngest 2 children were able to attend Smithfield Middle School. SMS might just be the best kept secret in the Birdville District.

Smithfield is an excellent middle school. Students are prepared and ready to succeed in high school. The senior principal is caring and willing to listen. He is involved with the students and knows the kids by name. It is the best middle school in our district.

Smithfield Middle School is by far the best school that my child has ever attended. The leadership is outstanding and it is a community of learning. Teachers, as well as students, are always striving to cross the next horizon together and to become better and better every year. The learning never stops and academic growth is evident year after year. SMS is a very special educational institution that I am proud to have been a part of. They do ordinary things in an extraordinary way every day and my child was engaged! The lessons, the values, and the lifelong friends that my child and myself have made while being a part of SMS will be with us always.

I am a parent that has an 8th grader at SMS and a former SMS student that is now a junior in highschool. I'm so thankful & blessed that my children have been able to attend Smithfield. The leadership and faculty there are second to none! It is, by far, the best school my children have attended. They have been in the Pre AP & GT program and are prepared for their future learning. This is an excellent school!

Both of our children attend Smithfield Middle and we could not be happier. The teachers work with the students to ensure a positive learning experience. Our children have been involved in the athletics, choir, and band programs and have loved them all. The administration has proven to be concerned, positive, and supportive.

We are very blessed for 2 of our children to currently attend SMS. The school academics are outstanding. The leadership is extraordinary. The teachers and administrators are moral, dedicated, hard-working individuals who have taught my children the proper curriculum but more importantly how to be outstanding citizens leading by their examples.

There are a few very quality teachers at Smithfield, but the administration of the school lacks something to be desired. If your child is not a 'cookie cutter' kid then the teachers and principals do not want to be bothered. As a parent voicing concerns to the administration, all has fallen on deaf ears. All that I am looking for is the best possible education for my student, and the staff is only concerning with protecting their own. There is no leadership or accountability at this school and I am appalled that they get away with this behavior while supposedly educating our children and shaping their futures.

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.
