I have three children who graduated from Smithtown High School and all went on to study at excellent (Ivy league) universities. They were well prepared at Smithtown. We found the teachers and staff to be excellent, supporting and very involved. There were plenty of challenging (AP level) classes, and activities and events coordinated to whatever level the children required. The support staff was excellent and cutting edge. I have never felt that Smithtown lacked anything that any other district on LI offered. It was always available for the students to be as involved as they wanted to be. The district is very competitive in the Intel and Siemens competitions, Business DECA competitions, Model UN programs, music and NYSMA programs, National Merit Scholarship programs, and other national competitions that you read about in the newspapers. In addition, there were always opportunities for extra help, or disabled services if the need arose. The district as a whole is extremely accommodating, which is not always the case in a large district. I highly recommend the Smithtown School District.

Smithtown is a much better district offering better programs. The two high school system in Smithtown gives the students a much better situation than one big high school in Three Village. Smithtown has smaller school Middle Schools with 3 of them each housing grades 6,7and eight. Three village has two larger Junior High Schools housing grades 7.8,and 9. Ninth graders in Smithtown go to high school. Sixth graders in Three Village stay in the elementary school. Smithtown has much smaller school at the elementary level there are eight elementary school. Three Village has an excellent reputation for some of their elite programs, the Smithtown approach is to education and treat all of their kids as elite.
