    My daughter is in the 3rd grade at Smith after spending three years at a Blue Ribbon Catholic School. She loves her new school. She is excited every day and actually turns the TV off to do her homework! This mother is in Heaven!

    My son attended Smith for Kindergarten and first grade and absolutely loved the school. He learned so much while he attended. We have to move and I have not found any schools that even compare.

    My son goes to Smith and I have found that the time he has spent there has given him so much. He can relate better to other children and I beleive he has learned so much more than he would have in another school.

    My daughters are in 4th grade and kindergarten at Smith School. We moved into the neighborhood from across town this summer where the our oldest daughter attended Carlisle Elementary for K-3. We really enjoyed Carlisle but love Smith School. The best way I can discribe the school is a neighborhood school. Most of the children walk to school and live close to each other. The set up of the building atmosphere that is present and attitude of teachers aides and school staff is that of a really close family who live together in the same house. The dynamics are phenominal and I am so glad to be a Smith School mom!

    I have enjoyed having my son at Smith. All of the people there are wonderful. They are quick to help with any thing you may need. My son totally enjoys his time at school. They do a good job of keeping him involved with learning.
