If your child is failing, it is simply their own fault and probably aren't proficient with the category of learning. As a student who goes there, I was failing the first two quarters due to online school and not paying attention. When I went back face to face, the teachers are friendly, class is easy as long as you try. I am now on A and B honor-all. The school and teachers aren't the problem here.

The fact that this school is at the bottom 50% says a lot. My children were performing at the top level at their previous school and now attending Smitha they are failing, matter of fact in one of my kid's classes the whole class is failing... they blame the students for not applying themselves, but I have physically witnessed no teachers teaching virtual students, so at what point does the school take accountability??? I have expressed my concerns with teachers, principals and administrative staff, no one cares!!! All they are concerned with is their paycheck!!! I cannot wait to get my kids out of this school....!!!

If your child is new to Cobb county and attends this school, nothing will be done if they are jumped on besides them being blamed.

The school is great. You can get credits for highschool here. The teachers are all mainly nice. There are different types of music here, like chorus, band, and orchestra. There're many clubs. There Girls on the Run which is a girl track team. There's a game club. A yearbook clubs. A drama club and more. It's a good school.
