Love this school! My son has had a great experience. The teachers and principal are great!

My child has health problems and it seemed like I had to keep reminding or stating this fact to her new teacher. At certain times it did not matter to her teacher about my child's health because she thought she knew more but actually was ignorant to any medical protocols. I feel this teacher was instructing the wrong age group and needed older children to supervise because she did not have the patience nor understanding of younger children. My child's school year was good but I feel that it would have been so much better if she enjoyed her teacher and felt that her teacher cared about her and her educational goals. The color clip really upset me this year. Last year my child was not as focused on her clip as she was this year. I feel too much emphasis was placed on the color chart and less on her education. She was stressed about what color she was on that day and whether or not she was in trouble, when the worse thing she ever did was not finish her work. What does " think about it" mean when you did not finish your work because you were out of time? These are just some things that made my child's year and mine miserable.

I have had a child at this school since 2007. My last child is now in 1st grade there. Ann Smith is ahead of the game in terms of literacy and math curriculum. Ann Smith is also one of the only elementary schools in the state to have an art program. The teachers at Ann Smith are very invested in the children and the parents are super supportive and involved.

My granddaughter attends this school, and she has learned so much. The school celebrates diversity and teaches kids to appreciate one another. The curriculum is outstanding. In kindergarten she is reading easy reader books and is even writing short paragraphs about topics she enjoys. She talks about the school all the time! She loves the art class and all the special events the school has like the Thanksgiving Feast.

Ann Smith Elementary students really enjoy their school experience. The school has two computer labs, lots of hands-on learning activities, iPads, great music and P.E. Students have very high MAP scores (measure of academic progress), the scores are on the A level, the highest possible level. It is a true community school which gets a lot of support from parents and the city. We feel the resources available equal or surpass other schools in the area.
