Smith Elementary is BY FAR the WORST school I have ever come across!!! We have been having nothing but problems since the first month my daughter started attending. I have tried to work with Principle Thomason but he does nothing but attack and antagonize me. He acts like he is the warden of a prison and he has the school on lock down. He would not allow me to set up a class room observation, because he said "" It is my choice and I say NO"". So I had to ask for specific reasons and he said because it is distracting to the students, BUT he is ok with the teachers talking on their cell phones during class. These are only a FEW of the problems we have had. The teachers are completely incompetent and only teach around the testing schedule. So if your child doesn't learn about science oh well. All they care about are the test. So for the sake of your child's education and future DO NOT send them to Smith, if you have a choice!!! They will not let you transfer your child unless it is the month of May.
Pros: there are no pros!
Cons: the principle and staff are completely incompetent!
