    Well there are so many great and wonderful things about Calvin S. Smith Elementary. They have a superb Principal Ms. Crawley. She has done an outstanding job at keeping a good mix between discipline respect and just having plan 'ol fun. I'd say it all goes down to the Staff. Their Teachers have a 110% attitude about their passions and that translates into great students therefore making happy parents. The End! =)

    I have two children attending school here since k and have kept holding on for the next year to improve (teacher issues) I am now looking for alternative. Very unhappy with the teachers. New Principal is great though and the kids love her.

    What a sad mistake this school is. The school administration and the teachers have mismanaged the education of my child from First grade through fourth. There is a teacher team in the fourth grade that is horrendous. The teachers are abusive to the children verbally and do not communicate well with each other. I would watch any child's education at this school like a hawk. Granite School District needs to deal with administrative and teacher issues at this school.
