    My children have been attending Smith Elementary for two years now and we really love it! I can see them flourishing at Smith. This school does not only do very well academically but they also sow a sense of community in every family that attends. I really like that my kids are exposed to this community/family feeling that you get when you enter the building. The staff is really caring and you can see they enjoy working at Smith. I am looking forward to the next few years...go Jaguars!
