    "My grand daughter has been living with me since she has started school, this has been a real experience for us and the teachers and the principal has worked with my grand daughter and ourselves for the past couple years. I think the education and the caring for all the students are outstanding and my grand daughter has excelled in her all her classes."

    "Best School Ever! Best Staff Ever! I have 4 daughters and ALL have attended Smiley an All have loved their learning experience. I moved from a different county because of the schools system. They pay more attention to the students an they care beyond their duties as teachers. I will be proud to see my last "graduate" Smiley but I will be a sad parent to leave the school an staff."

    "My son attended kindergarten at Smiley. I am horrified by this County's education department. Education, especially kindergarten is such an important time to instill a life-long love of learning. Sadly, this school treats the children as if it is a concentration camp. My son was told, everyday, prior to leaving the classroom to put his "hands behind your back and mouths shut." Other children were bullied, and the teachers stood by chatting in complete disregard. There are very few teachers that I met that actually belong in the field, and the inadequate teacher my son had explained that the principal would flip if the children made any noises in the hallway. Corporal punishment is still in effect at this school. They also have a militarized program (run by former drill instructors) for the "delinquents". I would absolutely seek an alternate schooling option if you care about your child's elementary education!"

    "I would like to thank the staff and teachers at Smiley Elementary School for providing a safe, clean, and great learning experience for my 5 year old grandson, i could not ask for bettter learning experience from Mrs Dent and Miss Walker. I have been associated with larger public schools and private schools and Smiley has exceeded my expectations."

    "My child attended kindergarten at Smiley during 2012-2013. I will admit that I was extremely hesitant in sending him to the school due to the location and word-of-mouth horror stories from other parents in surrounding districts. I absolutely misjudged the school and the teachers. My son is now at the top of his class and has excelled greatly. I honestly believe he has the best teacher. She is warm, caring, and hands-on with her class and students. I couldn't ask for a better teacher and teacher assistant. The staff is extremely friendly and always helpful. I have only had ONE complaint the ENTIRE school year and that was concerning the teacher my son was initially assigned to. She wasn't exactly friendly or caring. We discussed our concerns with the principal and our child was immediately moved to a different class, no questions asked. I am saddened by the fact that we are moving and our son will not be attending school here in the future. I would stay in a heartbeat knowing that my son is getting a top-notch education."
