    This school does not follow their own Code of Conduct. The amount of bullying that occurs there is terrible. The victims have no rights they actually get disciplined if they either report respond or even react by holding the bully to stop the assaults. They are expected to just take it. Also for those who speak another language other than English make sure to not speak it at school because teachers and student will tell you not to they don't like it..... The teachers do not care if your child is getting bullied they will not report any incidents but they will report if your child arrived three seconds late to class or if they put their heads down when they don't feel well. When it comes to sports don't bother they already have their groups of favorites your child will be discouraged from participating unless they are extremely gifted...

    A great school with many class choices for students. The teachers there care about their students and go the extra mile when called upon. I'm very happy with this school.

    I love this school district. I personally attended this school district from 1970 to 1977 and three of my children have attended Smyrna School District school.

    As the parent of an academically gifted child I would not recommend Smyrna High School. The administration seems to care more about keeping the status quo then promoting students who have an above-average intellect. Fortunately there are a (small) handful of educators that recognize true giftedness when they see it and encourage students like my child to aim high and reach their goals. If you are looking for a positive learning environment for an above average child it would benefit you to to look beyond Smyrna. If you are content to accept mediocrity then Smyrna shcools are the place for you!

    Smyrna High School offers a positive learning environment. The teachers and administrators use a behavoir rewards system. Discipline does not become a major problem while the students who are staying focused receive acknowledgement. The extracurricular activities and sports offer a creative and atheletic outlet for the students. Smyrna High School also focuses on keeping the students on track for college through several preparation methods.

    Both of my children attended all 4 years of high school at Smyrna High. Smyrna stands out in leadership from the opportunities the kids are given to the character and quality of teachers. They are a cutting edge learning environment. The curriculum comes in all levels including AP and College level (accredited) courses. The teachers are as well involved in leading extra curricular activities and community based projects. Pride in school community and Self are exemplified at Smyrna High School. Outstanding extra circular activities from Football Softball Soccer Track Golf Wrestling Field Hockey FFA FEA Foreign language clubs Chess club YBPA Cheerleading and a Dynamic Drama Club. The teachers are approachable for students or parents. The principals are seen continually and know the students by name. This is a School full of Pride and rightly so. I recommend Smyrna High School to everyone. This has been the best education/life experience for my children.

    I currently have 2 sons in Smyrna High School. I have a doctorate degree and I know a good school when I see one. I love the way SHS uses all of its assets to improve the knowledge of the students currently going there. I would highly recommend this fine school to anyone. They also have less students per teacher so the students get more individual attention and the students benefit largely from it.
