Open Quote My (short) experience at Smithfield was a horror. At the time of his enrollment, my son was in the process of being evaluated by an outside provider due to his behavior. I relayed my own concerns with Asa and informed them that I was seeking to have him evaluated. The staff were unhelpful and uncaring, as well as extremely prejudiced. They never offered their own services to me, even though they were secretly having him observed by the school's social worker who never even reached out to me. What they did instead was call me to the school nearly every other day to complain about my son's behavior. When my son had to miss one day of school, they immediately called CPS on me to report me for abuse. They made up stories about how my son had "bruises" for weeks (if he really had bruises for weeks, should they not have reported me way back when...?). They also added how much of a terror he was at school and they were "concerned" after he finally missed one day. The case was dismissed immediately and even the investigating social worker saw through their BS. My son was diagnosed with ADHD and a speech disorder and now has an IEP at his new school. Smithfield never, EVER helped our case they just wanted to get rid of us, which is why I believe they called CPS on me. I would NEVER recommend Smithfield to anyone. Close Quote

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.
