Smyrna School District Reviews

I have been in the Smyrna School District since I was a kindergartner, and now being a senior (hopefully) graduating in June all my experiences have been through this district. I would not be the person that I am today without many of the caring and dedicated individuals that I have met throughout my schooling. From helping me build a sense of normal after the passing of my father in fifth grade, to helping me find my passion and love for agriculture within the middle and high school programs, so much of the person and the skills I have today come from the support of the individuals that have impacted me throughout my school career. Many of the teachers within the district are there to support their students in any way possible and I have so many memories from clubs and activities as early as elementary school.

The Smyrna School District is a District that makes everyone feel welcome. It is in a very small town, so everyone pretty much knows each other and because of this are very supportive of each other. Sports events are always packed and the District is very good at recognizing the accomplishments of all of their students. I have been going to this district since the first grade and have always felt safe and appreciated within this district and would recommend any of the schools in it.
My experience at Smyrna high school was like every kids experience in high school it was filled with bumps in the road of finding out who I was. I never thought that I would miss high school, but when it was my last time being able to see my teachers it was heart breaking we all had mask on and I couldn’t even hug them one last time. Everyone was right it goes by fast. If I could go back I would to the 1st day of high school to tI try even harder and enjoy more of it then I did, the staff and administrators have helped me through so much. Even on the worst days they were there helping me through my diabetes through home issues through everything.
