The quality of the academic programs are excellent. The availability of music,sports, and other extracurricular activities are okay. For example, the Student Council at Smith Middle School has limited jobs to do. The facilities at Smith are kind of clean. The custodians do their best to keep it clean. The level of parent involvment has decreased just a little bit.
