    Chillicothe Middle School has made improvements in all areas. They are no longer in the beautiful but crumbling Smith building. The facilities are clean bright and spacious. The teachers are dedicated to each student. The new administration is supportive and strong leaders. The excellent rating that I give them goes with the excellent rating from the state. In addition CMS is one of just a few "Leader in Me" middle schools in the country.

    Smith middle school is very old and falling apart. The bus system is very poor overcrowded is putting it lightly. My daughter is on the bus for an hour and a half. We live seven minutes away.

    Smith M.S has a great program and great teachers but the school itself is very poor.Theres dust and dirt cluttering every space of the school. The walls are crumbling and it needs new floors. Smiths class rooms are very tiny and are packed full of students which means not all the students get all the individual attention that they need to learn properly. If you ask me I would give it a 4 out of 10.
