Smithville R-II School District Reviews

Smithville High School is a close community school. Over the past 10 years Smithville has almost doubled in size, but our school culture has never been closer. This year Smithville took the leap to start expanding their school district and began construction to create another k-6 school. Smithville has a great educational system for any type of student, with a special needs program, and a gifted student program. Two times every year the smithville school districts has their students fill out surveys on all of their teachers to help the staff better meet the needs of their students. These surveys also help the teachers educate their students using vast materials, such as technology, maps, classroom layout, and presentations. This year Smithville made the choice to be involved with the 1-to-1 program. This program provides every student with a chromebook to use in and outside of school for free.

I like that Smithville is a small community that for the most part is involved in the school. I feel that some of the teachers are not in it for the students and that that should be taken into consideration when they are interviewed. I feel that the new administration has really stepped up and helped make the school a better place and is doing everything they can to promote school spirit in a positive way. One thing I would change is to have seniors be spirit leaders, if you are going to have spirit leaders, because seniors only get one chance to be the leader of the school and that shouldn't be taken away from them by having underclassmen in charge of spirit.
Smithville School District does not prepare you well for the real world. In a predominately white school we are often very prejudiced when we leave. The inner city is dangerous and people around us are bad or scary. Wrong. The world around us is very good but not when we are taught the opposite. We are not prepared for work, or bills, or being on our own. In fact, most of us are not even ready for college and that is what scare me the most. Don’t get me wrong, Smithville is a wonderful town by the lake, everyone is so nice here, and everyone knows everyone. However, are these the things that are important?
