    "The day I stepped my foot on the property of the Academy at Smith, I knew I was aiming for success. I have been going to the Academy at smith for 2 years now. The environment is amazing. The teachers and admistration are really involved in the students' daily life. They make sure we are on task and getting prepared for college. Our school has a 0 tolerance for bullying. We all join forces to reach our goals and to be successful."

    "The teachers are always available and give you their personal information. They make sure that you have a direct line to contact them, not just the "school" phone number. They also make sure that their email is available and an online system of checking attendance and grades are updated weekly as well."

    "I feel the small environment really helps the students as far as help from the teacher. The two concentrations really help get the students started in their career field."
