P. B. Smith Elementary and it is a fine school with a fine staff. No problem is to large or to small for getting the help we need from the staff at P.B. Smith to make our children's school year and home environment a good one. Thanks P.B. Smith and I'm a happy that I am a member of your family.

I love this school. Dr. Compstock is the most diligent principal I have ever met. She knows every childs name and treats them all as equals.

I absolutely LOVE this school!! The teachers are friendly and dedicated, the office staff is welcoming, and the administrative staff is appropriate in their discipline and praise. I have NO complaints about PB Smith and will greatly miss it when we move!!

This is a great school. My kids have really enjoyed it here. The Principal is very responsive and does a great job. In particular the Kindergarten program is phenomenal.

I transferred my daughter from a private school to PB Smith and I don't regret this decision. She had a great teacher who was wonderful with the kids. The school is very responsive and there is a lot of parent involvement all around the school. The new Principal is very involved with the school and the events sponsored by FOS.

I can't say enough good things about P.B. Smith. The new principal is top notch. The teachers are excellent. We have been so thankful for the education and support provided by the educators and administration of this great school!

Sadly, our family is being redistricted to a new school for the next year. I know all of us who are leaving would love to stay in such a fine school. It will be hard for anyone to meet the standard set by the principal and teachers. It has been a great 5 years for my daughter and I only wish she could spend her last year there.

We are new to the school this year. We have found this school to be so far ahead of where we came from we are just realizing what a mediocre school our former one was. The office staff is so welcoming. The admnistrators are out there seeing what is going on and our children's teachers are superb. We are thrilled.

Wow.I couldn't disagree more with the two contributors who find this school deficient. The principal is very approachable and very child centered. Teachers are fabulous. She has a real talent for choosing the best and keeping them the best. Great school. Smith's test scores are high, especially considering the diversity of the school. Kids love thier school and if you go to school events, you will see lots of middle school kids coming back to visit. My three kids have had wonderful teachers every single year.

I love P.B. Smith and sadly our family is moving. I feel that our boys have had an excellent experience. Volunteers are welcome, the teachers are great and the environment is open and friendly. The need for more programs? I think the focus on math, reading and writing worked for my average boys with good grades.

Over the last several years some member's of the administrative staff seems to have gone on auto pilot. Extracurricular activities are growing in quantity and quality. Field Trips need more variety and frequency. The local area is changing with families moving to the area and the school and county need to adapt from 'rural nature of our community' to a more urban school environment. They need to keep up with the changing surroundings and challenges.
