    We moved to this area when my daughter was in 1st grade and she attended Smithville for all her elementary years. The staff is very caring and top notch. We had one "clunker" teacher in 4th grade who has since retired! But all the rest of years especially the 6th grade had dedicated professional teachers.

    We recently moved from Galloway NJ to Bonita Springs FL. While the weather here can't be beat the schools sure can! My children and family were spoiled by the all-around excellence of Smithville School! All administrators and teachers are bright loving fun - people parents feel great about entrusting their children to! My boys learned to love learning here! Despite the school's size it seemed most teachers and administrators knew all of the students by name - how do they do it? The driving force is pure love of kids and teaching! Shame on you governor Chris Christie ~ may your political career shrivel like what you're trying to do to the NJ public schools teachers' spirits and pocketbooks.

    We love this school. My son was in their preschool and is currently in 1st grade. Wonderful caring teachers who go beyond the extra mile. My son was also chosen for a gifted and talented program. He loves school!
