I absolutely love this school! The teachers and staff are all VERY caring and compassionate towards the children. All the programs the school offers children are amazing. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating is because of the current principal. Getting her to follow through with a problem ...  Read more

My daughter is having a terrific experience at Smith. She is learning a great deal and thoroughly enjoying herself.

I have seen less positive changes in this school over recent years. An outreach program for only one ethnicity is not fair to other children who may need additional support. I agree there is not much creativity for the GATE child. They seem to be aiming for the average and below average students now.

Hard working and caring teachers and staff. New principal to the school is student centered and supports programs. The PTO continues to work hard at providing extra activities and strong support for programs. The new "goal-setting conferences" were interesting and somewhat useful. Still don't know if ...  Read more

I am so impressed with this school! There are lots of extra-curricular activities for students. The principal, teachers, aides, duties really work as a team to ensure students receive a good education as well enforcing rules, guidance, etc. There is a strong anti-bullying policy enforced. Parents ...  Read more

Smith 10 years ago (Mr. Vernoy as principal) did not have snobs and cliques. We have noticed this changed through the years as we had our oldest who attended Smith and youngest is currently attending. Although, we ignore these snobs and cliques. We care about our kids education and success. Smith is ...  Read more

Not sure where that last reviewer is coming from. I have never encountered any rude staff or teachers. Kids who struggle are given help. If your child isn't being helped, then find out why not, rather than say the whole school is against you. The community around Smith has several neighborhoods of various ...  Read more

Teachers are not interested in teaching children that may struggle with some subjects. Office staff are often rude to parents. The community surrounding the school is snotty and many parents are rude to families they see as being 'inferior' and of 'lower class' than they are. Facilities are nice, but ...  Read more

Emma Smith goes above and beyond to provide my child an excellent education. The teachers, principal, office team and parent volunteers work cohesively to intelligently provide programs that will have the most impact on our children's learning. Without these extra programs, Smith would still be a good ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
