Even though the communication and organization for some events could have been better, I want to say I was extremely pleased with this school during the 2014-2015 school year. Ms. Karkos was an amazing teacher. She takes the time to know each student and not only works hard to develop their brains, but also works very hard to show them how to be wonderful members of a community. The LEAD program was amazing. Lots of ppl on staff who care deeply for the children. Thank you Smith Elementary!

Everything the Post from April 14, 2013 says PLUS I am OUTRAGED to find that they issue detention to Pre-K age children for tardies. How is punishing a 3 year old by giving their parent's more free time to do whatever they want for an extra few hours constructive? Anyone?

First off the office staff is not very welcoming. The school does not make you feel welcome at all. I understand that there are security measures to follow, but not being able to walk your child to class is ridiculous, and the way they have the pick up set up is terrible. Basically all the parents wait in a small area at the front and wait for the childs name to be called to go home. This can take a while, because sometimes the teachers dont have the children in the lunch room when they are calling names already. Also the lunch monitors are extremely rude and yelll constantly at the children. There are better ways to communicate with them. The menu itself is terrible, but that is a different topic. Overall we have been happy with the teacher and academics, but not feeling welcome is sad. AISD is not the best, but at least when we volunteered or visited the schools, the staff was always friendly and encouraging. Also they are always late to send out notifications. Everything seems to be last minute for them, such as events and they do not seem organized at all.

Friendly, On top of things as best as possible, organized and has been very helpful for my child who struggles a bit. I feel that my child is safe. Is the school perfect, no. But I can tell you from switching my child from another school in Del Valle this school is WAY better then the others. REMEMBER we are in TX. GOP controls, so there is a lot of lacking of good resources to help our teachers and other staff members; especially on East side.
