Imagine sitting in the bathroom not knowing what to do as your monthly female cycle has started. It’s gone through your pants and you don’t have access to your phone with no other students in sight. Panic sets in. Just then a teacher comes in and without question goes above and beyond to figure out a change of clothes and helps you avoid complete embarrassment with your other classmates. Many of our teachers would go above and beyond for our students and I’m glad to call Smithville High School my school!

I graduated Smithville this year (2019) and my freshman and sophomore years had excellent teachers and staff, but I watched them all disappear one by one over the last couple of years. It's really disappointing to see this district unable to keep such incredible teachers while still boasting to be one of the best districts in the state. I feel my education in Smithville prepared me for college, but I think the faculty and student culture needs some serious improvement.
There are a few awesome teachers, even though some of the best ones left to go to other schools. Diversity is non existent. Free thought and individuality are discouraged. Sports take priority over everything else, even academics. Most of my friends who have started college say that even though they got good grades here, they weren't prepared for college and struggle. If I had kids I wouldn't want them to go there, but maybe things will get better
