Smith Vocational & Agricultural High School Reviews
It’s been pretty great. I decided to go for animal science and start fresh as I decided to not go to the regular high school in my town with all my friends. It was not easy to make friends at first but now that I’m a senior I have a few good friends that I enjoy my company with. I am glad I went to Smith Vocational!
I may have only gone to Smith for two years (Junior and Senior year) but the people were amazing and the academics were great and the school was open to most kinds of diversity. You could come from anywhere and you would still be welcomed. I'd recommend that anyone who wants to get a great academic and vocational education check out the school. However some things I would change is that the academic faculty seemed to be politically polarized to the left. However in my experience that isn't the case for the shops. The administration has a tendency to pick and choose which acts will or will not go unpunished. Just don't ask too much of them and you will be satisfied. In the grand scheme of things this school isn't the most perfect school but it's one of the best in the entire time I've been in school. I would highly recommend this school to a student that struggles academically but wants to learn a valuable trade.
The health technology program is one of the best, a student comes out with a readiness to take and pass the CNA test. In fact your junior year you take the test and go up for your certification. In your senior year you take phlebotomy and take the test. You also take the home maker home health aid course and become certified to care for people in there homes. We do actual clinical work in different settings and different areas of the community. The school itself gives us the opportunity to go work at job that is with in your shop. Academic teachers give us the necessary tools to success-ed in the work force. Our academics are half the year which means we get the bulk and main points we need to learn. We have honors classes and basic classes and also the normal class. For students who need extra help we have applied classes. All of your classes prepare us to take the SAT's and move on to higher education.
