Smoky Valley High School is an institution where I feel safe and validated. The teachers are knowledgeable and always willing to lend a helping hand. Furthermore, they are eager and enthusiastic about teaching. The students are easy to get along with, and it's nice to know almost everyone.
The athletic department at Smoky Valley fosters integrity, pride, and hard work, but also companionship and humility.
Smoky Valley also offers many musical opportunities as well as club opportunities, so there is always something for someone!

I really loved my experience at Smoky Valley. It was a place where I could really grow and thrive. My teachers were all extremely supportive of me, and I felt at home when I walked through the halls. My grades were all above average--4.0 on a 4.0 scale--and I think my teachers are mainly to thank for that as well as the supportive students. There are a lot of opportunities to pursue more than one course at Smoky Valley despite its size, and the faculty does everything in their power to create a really great atmosphere for the students.
Smoky Valley High School is in a small town in Lindsborg Kansas. Like any small town, their school is also small. This brings all of the pros and cons of being in a small school. Their sports program is decent but because the school is so small there is a lack of talent. They have an excellent music program that should get more attention than it does currently. The most disappointing thing about SVHS is that their lunches are laughably horrible. With that being said, I am not sure sure how much the school itself is to blame regarding food. Overall, my years at SVHS were some of my favorite.
