Open Quote I am worried about my grandson's ability to obtain a quality education at Smitha with such a poor overall ranking. 354?? Close Quote

Open Quote Very bad school, do not send your kids there. My advanced student got nothing from the teachers. Some teachers are impatient and other staff very unprofessional. Close Quote

Open Quote With Mr. Terza as the principal, this school has been a good place for my son~ The teachers do help the kids, the band program is phenomenal. I believe the kids can get out of Smitha what they put into it. (Honor Roll student) Close Quote

Open Quote This school is very crowded; the teachers put a lot of effort, but the students do not give any effort into trying. The only reason this school has a 90 avg test score is because of the advanced kids bringing the average up.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
