Smithfield Public Schools Reviews
I love Smithfield! It is a very tight knit community with very kind people. I love the teachers in the schools, you can tell that they really care about the students. The parents and students and teachers are all supportive of the community and what is going on in it. I would like there to be less cliques and to have people more open to other groups and new people. Otherwise they are very nice. They are very good with teaching and preparing everyone for the real world and opportunities after high school, not just college. I would like them to add some classes or conferences that will help students with practical things like taxes and hidden bank fees, etc.
I’ve been in the public school system for 7 years. I am a sophomore now. I loved this school system because they are so inclusive to everyone. They really connect with there students and put plans in place to see everyone succeed. Such as CTE pathways that prepare students for careers. And small in class exercises to prepare the students for SATs. In addition there are activities and clubs for all students and all ages. If you want an activity that they don’t have, they will get t started for you. This school system is amazing!
My experience here has been ok. The classes I take are challenging, and the teachers are extremely helpful and easy to understand. The school is relatively successful in terms of student involvement in activities like fundraisers, they are usually activities that students get excited to participate in. However, the culture at the school is very white-oriented and the administration pride themselves on being inclusive without actually taking initiative with things like clubs or bullying. We had a diversity club run by a teacher who was a person of color, but she was let go and the club dissipated, despite the staff saying they would appoint a new teacher as the leader. The resources at the school are also extremely limited, the school psychologist often cancels meetings because something of "higher priority" came up. So, while classes and teachers are okay at this school, they are barely aware of the students needs in terms of stress, anxiety, depression, and bullying issues.
