Smallwood is a much better school that what it use to be. baisically if your child stays on the right path and away from the wrong group of kids, they should have no problems. I enjoy the attention that the teachers give the students academically. their programs are very broad.

Afterschool programs include archery, MESA, Destination Imagination, National Junior Honor Society, Future Educators of America, and others I'm sure I have missed. There is a walking program before school for students and parents, and the Jazz Band meets before school too. The PTO is extremely active ...  Read more
