I attended Smithsburg as a student in my freshman and sophomore year. All in all, it wasn't bad. There's no doubt smithsburg is a big agricultural, predominately white school, and as an african american I have felt overwhelmed at times (zero diversity here, I know my graduating class had about..4 or ...  Read more

I was very pleased with this school. The teachers I had were great. The administration, including the current principal and guidance counselors need to be done away with. They are absent and seems disinterested. I was struggling in a class and asked a counselor to help, she flat out refused, telling ...  Read more

It is a great school. Nothing bad happens there and there is enough extra curricular activities to keep kids busy and out of trouble. The only thing i have to complain about is that you never hardly see the principal. The students and teachers are great. I really love it there.

The principal is never there. At first there was only air conditioning in the offices. They are always in the office. Children get picked on a lot during lunch. We have some cool teachers. The counselors aren't so great.

I am currently a Senior at Smithsburg High School and I overall enjoy it here. However, there are many things that I dislike. I hate the fact that AP classes are so strongly pushed. If students want to take a college level class that is fine, but the administration does not have to make, let's use ...  Read more

Smithsburg High School is the biggest joke of a high school. The principal is weak and unfair. 3 members of the class of 2004 were all not aloud to walk for filling water balloons up in the bathroom. I would not recomend going there or sending your kids there unless new management was present. Being ...  Read more

Smithsburg is a great high school! Our daughter is having a great time and being pushed to learn and do well at the same time. She is involed in 3 sports, marching band and drama. They offer enough to keep the kids busy and out of trouble! We highly recommend it!
