    Both my children go to Smith. My oldest is in 2nd grade my youngest in Kindergarden. We have absolutely loved being there! From the Facuilty to the custodial and in between have just been great they really care about the students. I wouldn't take my children from this school! Interaction with the children on all level are key for development. Smith should have no less than a 10!

    TERRIBLE. My daughter attended last year and HATED it. Bad school. Don't trust it. I'm glad we aren't part of it anymore.

    Smith School is filled with students and staff who strive to make learning fun. The Administration and Parents are working hard to make Smith School a 21st Century learning facility. Our students have access to multiple forms of technology and are encouraged to use it in their learning experience. A++++ school.
